It does not matter if that link shows information or does not show information.

However unless you have tried converting a file using it. I wouldn't be to quick to disprove of it.
Information discarded by compressing to MP3 can never be retrieved.

Try converting a song with the link I provided than listen to both.
Converting an MP3 to a FLAC usually makes no sense. Both files then have the same sound quality, but the FLAC is much larger. There is a way to see who is correct. Please ABX and report back to us.

Comparing the properties of the original mp3 file and the flac file. I can tell you that the file size increased alittle over three times in size. Which makes sense because flac files are alot bigger than mp3 files. Try converting a song with the link I provided than listen to both.
I won't be wasting my time doing repeats of tests I did years ago. When I first found ABi I was looking for a converter to increase the quality of files I had ripped at really low settings. That's when I learned that once a file is created in a lossy format that's the best it ever can be.

Converting to a lossless format makes it bigger, not better. Pouring a glass of water into a barrel doesn't give you more water. Seeing the larger barrel may be more satifying but what's inside is the same. If you enjoy lugging barrels when you could be carrying the same contents in a glass, go right ahead. I won't be joining you. I doubt anyone that has bothered to do any basic reseach will either.
