Re: lossy or not

Lossy - yes. FM sourced - more than likely.

I'm not gonna d/load it to check for sure, but the amount of "missing" data above 16000hz is a giveaway.

Also, (without doing another Spec Analysis to confirm) the "blocks" above 16000hz would have a more uniform shape to them if compressed.
