I'm just curious, I know FLAC and WAV Lossless are indeed "lossless", the only difference is that FLAC has some compression. But anyway, I ripped a same song using EAC in FLAC (compression lv. 5) and WAV Lossless. The FLAC file is 1023kbps while the WAV file is 1411kbps. Again, I know they're both lossless but I wonder if their bitrates has something to do with their quality.

sin(α) = v sound/v object = Mach No.

Load the WAV converted from FLAC into an audio editor together with the original WAV.
Time align if needed and subtract the tracks. You will end up with zeros only as the two tracks are bit identical (lossless=lossless)
Load the WAV converted from MP3 into an audio editor together with the original WAV.

May I ask how is this done? I use Audacity.

You can also load both files into foobar2000 and use its optional "binary compare" component:


Will tell you if the two files are identical when decoded.
