Default Wavpack Question?

Can the O2 read a lossy wavepack file as lossless with the .wvc file included?

I can test it for you if you provide a file.

Thanks dfkt...I never uploaded anything before but I tried it..hope it works.

It's 2 files, the lossy wavpack and the wvc correction file.

If you play it with the wvc file included in the same folder it should play a lossless, if you remove the wvc file it should play as a lossy wavpack.

Not sure if the O2 shows bitrates while playing music but with the wvc file included it should play at a variable bitrate of 500 and above. Without the wvc file it should play around 320.

Well here's the link:

Sorry to say, it doesn't use/recognize the correction file. With and without the file on the player it shows an average bitrate of 333kbps, and "WavPack4 Hybrid" as a description.

(Nice track, by the way. )

Thanks dfkt I appreciate it..

I thought it might since jetaudio recognizes it...oh well...Just would of been more convenient for me for ripping and adding and changing up lossless files on a dap...since there is no dap that will store all my music.

Thanks again for your help..

Default WavPack Cowon O2 Answer

You have to rip the CD without the correction file. This will produce a .wv only that is lossless. The two file method produces a lossy file (.wv) combined with a correction file (.wvc) that together is tech lossless. This does not work on the O2 it will only see the .wv high bitrate lossy file. I have the O2 and use DBPower Amp to rip my CD's and the .wv files play just fine on my O2.

Also I have noticed the .wv files are a smaller size than a level 8 .flac file. It is also worth mentioning that tech .wv uses less power to decode. This should equal better battery life. I am in the process of testing this now.
