Recently, we have received many customers' request regarding Spotify. One of the questions we are asked frequently is: how to rip Spotify music to lossless FLAC?

As we all know, all the original Spotify songs are encoded in 320kbps Ogg Vorbis format. But only Spotify Premium users have the ability to access those high-quality songs. Meanwhile, they are able to download Spotify songs for offline listening. However, due to the DRM copyright protection, those offline Spotify songs can only be played on selected devices.

In order to listen to Spotify songs on those popular media players, it's necessary to convert Spotify music to a commonly used format. As a lossless audio format, FLAC could always be the best choice if you wish to keep the same quality as the original sound audio. FLAC, short for Free Lossless Audio Codec, is an audio format similar to MP3, but lossless. It means that the audio is compressed in FLAC without any loss in audio quality.

So, how can you download Spotify music to FLAC? Well, the easiest way to download FLAC from Spotify is to use a powerful Spotify to FLAC converter. Fortunately, ViWizard Music Converter for Spotify is able to meet such requirements. It is capable of download songs and playlists from Spotify as lossless FLAC in one click only.
