How to convert Spotify music to FLAC?

What is FLAC?

FLAC stands for Free Lossless Audio Codec, and it is an audio compression format like MP3, but while MP3 uses a "lossy" compression, which basically discard audio information that humans can't hear, FLAC uses a lossless compression, which will not change the quality of the compressed audio. This means that if you rip an Audio CD track to a FLAC file, that file will retain the same quality of the original (CD quality), like a WAV file, but it will take less space (usually about one third of the corresponding Wav file). It is a musical file format that offers bit-perfect copies of CDs but at half the size. The best FLAC player is probably VLC, and nearly all popular media players are able to play a FLAC file.

From the above introduction, you will find that FLAC is better than other formats. You may want to save your Spotify music to FLAC format. How to achieve that? Spotify song is encrypted by DRM, which prevents users from downloading to plain formats. Even if the paid users allowed to download Spotify music for offline enjoying, can’t change the format. So you need a third-party DRM removal tool to strip DRM from Spotify music and then convert it to FLAC format.
