Transcoding from WavPack Lossy
Is there any incentive to waste about 160-200 kbps by not using a modern MP3 or AAC encoder?


For use with Bluetooth A2DP, possibly (potentially less lossy to lossy degradation).

Warranted, I don't know how lossy Wavpack works, but what makes you say it is less lossy than AAC/MP3?
It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.

Above 256 kbps the quality of WavPack's lossy mode increases rapidly, with added quantization noise (which is the only artifact)

Very soon after the release of version 1.0, Bryant released v. 2.0, which featured lossy encoding (using only quantization for data reduction – no psychoacoustic process was applied to the stream).
