Re: What does this shntool output mean?

The 'h' means that the compressed wav files have non-canonical headers, which shouldn't affect the audio or the fingerprint of the audio data. Some software along the way added some tags or other extraneous information to the headers. You can use shntool's strip command to fix the headers, or if you convert from shn to flac, I believe flac will fix it automatically.
