      Asunder vs fre:ac opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      The graphic user interface is great, and performs well. Multiple outgoing formats at the same time is a great time saver. Seems to be faster than fre:ac, but the quality of flac files seems to be identical.

      damonh fre:ac has no package so it has to be compiled or alternatively one can download the binaries. Interface isn't very friendly, although it has a lot of features has no tooltips of help.
