I am somewhat ignorant regarding lossless compression codecs, and I was wondering about some of ya'lls opinion on the sound quality of some of the codecs. I have tried FLAC and Wavpack, and I liked the quality of both of them, but I couldn't really tell the difference between the two.

Also, in ya'lls opinion, is it really worth using a lossless compression codec instead of using say Ogg Vorbis or MPC?

Thanks in advance.

Lossy = it doesn't produce output bit identical to the original.
ADPCM, DTS, AC-3, MP3, Vorbis, GSM, Speex are lossy codecs.
MLP, FLAC, Liquid Audio, Monkey's Audio, LPAC are lossless.
