Hi there, excuse me for my ignorance and bad english.
Does the -h or -hh option affects only the compression ratio? Is there some improvement in audio quality?
Thank you.

I am a stooge!

From Wavpack's home page:

-h = high quality (better compression in all modes, but slower)

The "high" mode should be used when compression ratio (or, in lossy mode, audio quality) is more important than compression (or decompression) speed. This option slows both by about a factor of about 1.5.

-hh = very high quality (best compression in all modes, but slowest)

The "very high" mode should be used when compression ratio (or, in lossy mode, audio quality) is much more important than compression (or decompression) speed. This option slows both by about a factor of about 2, and is not recommended for use on portable devices because of the high CPU load required for decoding.

Well, the question is answered, I guess.
