Is there something specifically wrong with your FLAC files that requires re-ripping from CD?
... if new CD is it worth to change from FLAC -8 to wavepack?

Compression ratio could be better though, especially for music coming from very few instruments. With mainstream pop/rock music differences towards other lossless codecs are rather small though.With wavPack especially when using -h or -hh you get a better compression especially with those tracks where FLAC's compression is a bit poor. I recommend to add the -x or better -x3 option for better compression at least on occasion - you pay for it with only a small amount of increased encoding time. So you're fine using -hhx3. wavPack's speed is good too.Oh, I see that you're planning to use wavPack in hybrid mode which is one of those features that gives wavPack such a great versatility.
