Pronoun agreement is your OT lesson for the day. Each is singular. Their is plural. Proper English grammar dictates that you use the masculine "his" as the default when the subject of the gender is unknown. If you wish to be grammatically and politically correct the proper phrase is, "to each his or her own." Regarding your other question, I will point out that the concept of breaking-in is largely an placebophile myth, though I suppose it extends beyond placebophiles whether they may be men or women. How you choose to spend the miniscule amount of processing power is your business.Thank you for dodging the part where you provide a compelling reason why someone should use wave over flac.
Will he be mailing it off to you in wave format instead?
Another question just for clarification.Let's say I have 2 same maxi singles. One which is newly bought, and one is a bit worn-out. I ripped both to FLAC files. Will both still be exactly the same?
If digital media is damaged to the point where you can no longer extract the data, even with specialized tools, then you don't have the file intact.
None of which has anything to do with the file format
So that my post will not only be meta-discussion: The most compelling argument in favor of WAV has not really been stated, the ubiquitous support in every audio player on every platform.
A more relevant question is does flac improve the sound of music over wav?
If you need compression and more tagging capabilities, have at it.

Feel free to close this after someone answers the last question~

You have a "backup" of those CDs in some lossless format like WAV or FLAC on a hard drive that you've stored off site. Your house burns down and all of the CDs are destroyed. Are you really going spend the time and effort to take those backup files and burn 1000 CDs? Or are you just going to switch from playing CDs to playing the files instead?What I'm saying is ... forget about the notion of "backing up" or archiving your CD collection. Instead, concentrate on ripping your library to a lossless format, tagging it thoroughly and correctly. Find a playback system for those files that you like. Make sure you maintain backups of the files and keep a copy in a safe place. And enjoy the music.
