Apple Music on Windows 11 does not support CDs, sorry audiophiles

A whole era in which Windows users find themselves now. After years of good and faithful service, iTunes is gradually being replaced by Apple Music, which will replace it. More specifically, the new player comes with Apple TV and Apple Devices responsible for syncing devices. So, at first glance, everything seems to be under the sign of modernization, which we have to admit was quite welcome after the reign of iTunes.

However, this change is likely to make people unhappy. Indeed, as our colleagues at MacGeneration reported, audiophiles and experts were hurt by the arrival of this preview of Apple Music, and there’s a specific reason for that: the app is dropping support for CDs. Therefore, it is impossible to read the old Led Zeppelin album sitting in the back of the cabinet or – which is the real problem – convert the files to lossless format.

Apple Music in Windows 11 skips CDs

No need to convert your albums to AAC or ALAC anymore. Of course, if this is possible with third-party applications, but iTunes goers will regret its encoder, which is considered by experts to be the best on the market. However, as MacGeneration points out, we can hope that this functionality will be introduced a little later, possibly in the final version of the app.

But it’s better not to trust him too much. If the abandonment of the CD is to bother audiophiles, it must be admitted that it makes sense in the context of the loss of speed for the market and the disappearance of optical drives in most PCs. Also, Apple Music works more or less the same as iTunes in managing its library. A consolation like any other.
