More Recommendation: Audio Converter Shareware for DRM-ed Audios

As for the above mentioned free audio converters, one thing to be noted is that they only supports downloading and converting common audio formats, namely unprotected audios. For some specially encode audios or music, such as the songs downloaded from Apple Music or iTunes, or the audiobooks got from Audible Store, are protected by DRM copyright technology. In result, no free audio converter would support converting them to plain formats. In this case, you'll need to switch to some shareware, such as ViWizard DRM Audio Converter for Mac/Windows that's well designed to help you convert both DRM-ed and non-DRM audio files.
