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.

I'd say yes, in the sense that a source that compressed a LOT (say 99%) or very little (say 1%) would be either incredibly sparse or incredibly noisy in terms of content.

Your example of 27% is outside the range I normally get: 50% +/- 10

You could have just encoded your wav file to flac without reripping.
