I’m a bit confounded. In playing with Windom I listened to some recordings I haven’t listened to in a long while. I Happened to have an recording of Rainy Night in Georgia, in both AIF and WAV . I suspect i ripped the CD to AIF, then converted to WAV.
I can understand why a flac might not sound as good as a pre uncompressed file due to CPU overhead, but why would WAV sound more natural in my system?
