  • slightly better compression ratio

  • fast seeking
  • stores wave md5 signature just like flac fingerprint
  • APE2 tags
  • full FB2k support

I don't know of any portables that support it, but I don't have a portable so I don't keep up on that area. If I did have a portable, I wouldn't use a lossless format with it anyway.

We should seriously consider allowing the wavpack format here at TTD. Here's the link to the wavpack website:
