Lossy - quality is lost (for ever) when compressing, like mp3,
Hybrid - two files are written out, .wv (normal wavepack) and .wvc which is a correction file. When the two files are present together the audio is decoded as Lossless, when the .wvc is taken away (and stored) the remaining small .wv file gives out Lossy audio,
