Does anybody know why transcoding from flac to flac gives a slight increase In file size?
I noticed this when transcoding a -8 flac track to -8 flac, despite not changing anything about the file structure, tags etc..

The reason I was initially doing this was to see if I could remove embedded artwork and match the pre-embedded artwork file size by transcoding flac to flac. However i noticed an increase In file size was being observed even on a basic, minimal-tagged flac file.

The transcodes were made using dBpoweramp's music converter.
