I am led to believe the restored version is an 'exact copy' and therefore should sound the same as the original wav......


Yes, because FLAC is lossless compression, you could do this conversion many times and not lose any quality. It's like Zip compression - you can zip and unzip a TIF file and it won't change the quality of the source.

In that case I am happy to use it.....

My Flac & Apple lossless purchased have dwindled to nothing since my iPod classic was stolen out of my car in my own drive way about 4 month ago.....my own drive way >:(.  I will get around to buying one again but for now Im enjoying playing cds.  My girlfriend has an nano and plays mp3's in her car.  It is hard to listen to for me.  I roll down the windows and it sounds much better.
