I want to burn .flac files directly to an audio CD. Is there any (possibly free) OS X application to do this?

Did you research this any? – cutrightjm Dec 23 '12 at 4:19
Yes, and as a result of that, I answered my question. :) – thSoft Dec 25 '12 at 9:42

Yes, Burn is free and open source software, but it is a bit buggy. LiquidCD is freeware, but I didn't encounter any issues while using it.

Which of these applications does allow the creation auf Audio CDs (suitable for any CD player) directly from FLAC? – patrix Dec 22 '12 at 21:18
Both, you can try them. :) – thSoft Dec 22 '12 at 21:40
I'm not so sure. I was using Burn and it worked, but upgraded to a new iMac and when I installed Burn on the new iMac, it would no longer handle FLAC files. (And I have ffmpeg installed, so it's not that.) No help on the forum or from an email to the developer. – Tango Apr 30 '14 at 4:33
