Default what unit allocation size when formatting HDD for digital audio library?

For a Windows 7 64-bit OS computer. This is not for a raid of any kind.
How should I set allocation unit size for a 2 TB harddrive to use for video and audio library when formatting a new harddrive?

the audio library will be FLAC files and also MP3s made from them. (from 500 audio CDs).

512 bytes
1024 bytes
2048 bytes
4096 bytes (4K)

also regarding partitions
should I just stick with the entire drive as 1 partition?
