RadLight APE DirectShow Filter
will allow you to play Monkey's Audio
(APE) encoded files in any DirectShow based player.
With APE, you will enjoy perfect sound, identical to the original, while still saving plenty of memory space.
Another advantage of this format is that you can always decompress APE files and get the original files back, exactly as they were.
This means that you will always be able to enjoy your original music collection again without needing to back it up.
APE is a superior format, as it makes perfect, bit-for-bit copies of your music, unlike other common formats, which can save disc space only by affecting sound quality.
