Doesn't compressing a 24-bit file to a lossy codec (other than a hybrid like WavPack) theoretically defeat the supposed benefits of DVD Audio quality? I'm seriously wondering. I was a bit confused before, of course, but this has me more befuddled. I've never heard of such a want or need and wonder why one would do this.

I guess what I mean is: wouldn't just converting this to a 16-bit lossy file be about the same? AFAIK the lossy codecs will discard most of the stuff that's supposed to be in the 24-bit range. (Sorry if my terminology is imprecise or if my question seems too novice. I come to HA because I'm not that knowledgeable about some of the things most of you are and am trying to learn rather than "teach.")

I've been looking online for a solution to your question but the only thing I can find is Wavpack as soiaf pointed out.

Edited for a grammatical error.
