It's the preferred file type by the members of the site, not sure about the site itself. FLAC's are smaller than SHN's and have checksum files which APE files don't.

I don't really mind SHN or APE too. I was just keen to avoid MP3.
FLAC seems to be the format of choice for most lossless these days. I like the fact that I can play it easily within media player classic.

I never used the SHN so can write about.
About FLACS I think is great really easy to work with, plugins for audio programs is easy to get, so waht be the advantages of the other formats?
