I confirm the above from my own results on subset of files (32bit float, mono and stereo)- over twice as fast encoding speed with only 0.10% - 0.30% file size increase. YMMV.

Similar to what I mentioned about TAK (-p4 vs. -p4m), the difference in ratio between WavPack -hhx4 and -hhx6 can be estimated fairly easily. Is worth the time? Maybe for testing the extreme limits of compression ratio and archival but not much for practical use.
