FLAC to MP3 or suitable FLAC portable player

Postby TerryB » Mon Mar 20, 2017 3:17 pm

I've got 500 albums ripped to FLAC on my NAS but would like to listen to them on the move. I have a decent portable Bluetooth speaker and a selection of MP3 players.
Question is how easy is it to convert the 5000 FLAC tracks to MP3 or should I consider a new portable FLAC player?
Any advice or experiences of this scenario?

What software do you use? I use JRiver and it is simple, just attach the device you want to copy to via USB, choose "Sync Handheld" and drag and drop the files. Then set the encoder settings for MP3 (including what sample rate you want to use).
Intel NUC -> Wyred 4 Sound DAC-2 / STP-SE / ST-500 -> Audiovector SR1 Avantgarde Arreté / Beyerdynamic T90
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact -> NAD D 3020 -> Audiovector Ki1 Signature

dB poweramp comes with a 'batch convertor' of which can convert from whatever to mp3 (or whatever you want).
I've had db poweramp for years for ripping cd's.
I used the batch convertor recently for the first time to get a large anthology (marc almond 10cd set) from flac to mp3 for my wifes tablet. It seems to works very well ( i did hit the help button to get advice for folder setup etc but it was all there in the help files).

I use EAC Exact Audio Copy to get my FLAC files, but can't find a batch FLAC to MP3 converter in it.
