Eh?? Am I missing something?

I thought (pretty sure) bitrate refers to the amount of data per second COMPRESSED?

Hence flac = smaller than wav = lower bitrate.


It cannot possibly refer to the amount of data per second uncompressed, cos EVERYTHING has the same value, 16-bit * 44.1KHz (or 48KHz) * 2 channels = 1411.2 (1536) KBit
