FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) is similar to ALAC and many use it to store music on Android devices.

Apple Music is currently in the process of moving their entire music catalogue over to both CD quality (requires more storage space on a hard drive) and ALAC so in the future I won't have to rip my CD's.

It makes a difference and the HK system has a great sound.
I've been using the native Spotify app. More than content with base qualitywise but even louder could be good. Will give HK due consideration next time.
The lossless audio is a major factor in the fabulous quality of the sound. Volume is a separate issue.
