After readibg many posts, this or this for instance, I find contradictions when it comes to use Wavpack lossy.

What are the right settings ?
some guys say "better use -j1 it imrproves the quality" and
some others "stereo is better if the bitrate is high"...
and what about -s1 ?

I'm using -b384 -h -s1, is it safe enough ?

thanks for advance.

Back from 2 weeks of holidays without an internet connection, and I'm frantically catching up with a million emails, and countless unread posts on HA! blink.gif

I haven't forgotten about checking out the noise shaping David, and will hopefully get a chance to have a play with it late this week.

I certainly concur that in general the joint stereo is worth leaving on. I'm now regularly using joint stereo for 320 kbit lossy with contemporary music (pop/rock), without any problems. I would be surprised if at 384 kbit there were any issues with joint stereo except in some really unusual instances with hard panned left or right speaker samples when listening through headphones at extremely high volumes.

I also agree that if you want to try out the different switches, they are easier to pick at 265 kbits, in case you want to "train" your ears to hear the diffierence.
