Hi

I'm not aware of this issue being known so here it goes...
I noticed that LossyWAV + FLAC (with flac block size of 512) may produce larger files than FLAC alone for some simple music material that already encodes at low bitrates with FLAC.

tools used: lossyWAV 1.3.0, FLAC 1.2.1
example bitrates for a track which consists of solo piano (44.1 kHz, 16 bit, stereo):

CODE
flac -8     375
-q E, -8    393
-q S, -8    390

flac -5     379
-q E, -5    395
-q S, -5    393


Any thoughts?

There's also --merge-blocks option in Wavpack.
