What is the interest to do a lossy flac ?
The goal of flac is compress and stay lossless.

AAC/MP3/Ogg are lossy ... why want one other lossy format ? If you listen lossy, you don't look for extreme quality anyway, it's more for practical reason.

Float16 and lossyFLAC are not equivalent. In any case, thisíll fit better in Other Lossy Codecs with the rest of the threads about either.

In said previous threads, as well as on the Knowledgebase, there is a good deal of information about these processors and their rationales.

True. LossyWAV will happily keep all 24-bits of a 24-bit file perfectly intact if it thinks this is necessary.

It'll keep 10 bits or less if it thinks this is acceptable.
