You are correct. SHN isn't a conversion, it's a lossless compression process. It ='s WAV->SHN->WAV, unlike processing through a Codec like MP3 or DTS which would be like:
WAV->DTS->(LOSSY AUDIO, certainly NOT the original WAV)... or
WAV->MP3->(LOSSY AUDIO, certainly NOT the original WAV)

Ideally, you want full bandwidth capability on ALL channels.
