RE: WAV better than FLAC accoring to Absolute Sound..

I agree in part and use .wav exclusively. I can see where the extra processing could affect the sound via the changed electrical environment.

Though I have a very hard time with their assertion that changing from .wav to .flac to .wav to .flac degrades the file.

Personally I think all this kind of "testing" is far to complex. There are tons of variables. For instance did they take into account the placement of these files? Were the .flacs in one directory or drive and the .wavs in another?? Was there data degradation or where the files identical?

Anyhow you should do a comparison and see what you hear or what you dont. Who cares what Tas concludes if you hear differently?
