Anyone tried listening the lossy modes of WavPack? The author has implemented Monkey's original idea of a lossy+recovery file=lossless compression..

The lossy modes can deliver mp3-like bitrates.

I am glad if I was of any help.
Indeed WavPack's lossy modes are not expected to compare favorably with more complex and tuned formats like mpc, mp3, ogg and aac. I've now tried the 320 kbps mode with some real music (classical mostly) and found it to be quite transparent to me.
I tried the clip furious.wv that you provided and it's exactly as you described. 512 kbps is too transparent for my hearing and 448 is barely perceptible.
In any case, I want to congratulate you for your excellent program and thank you for your effort on this fine piece of free software.
