I'm about to change over from Monkey's Audio to WavPack. It's all about compression for me. WavPack high seems to be almost as good as Monkey's Audio at -3000, which is what I've always used. Decode speed is pretty nice with WavPack too, about twice as fast, so that doesn't hurt either. FLAC is a really good format too in my opinion, but the small difference in compression per album adds up to quite a bit when you have a lot of them lol. That equals many gigabytes saved in my case. wink.gif
