what files do when being converted

Recommended Posts

Hey there, wondering if anyone is able to shed light on why when converting from more compact formats such as .OMG or .mp3 to .wav for example what the significance is for quality preservation given that once converted to wav, what was an originally smaller file is now larger. Sure maybe the larger size may be to some extent the result of decompression but is decompression the only explanation for the larger file size in the wav format? I guess here we could discuss differences between how different conversion software works too maybe, with respect to information loss when converting from compressed to expanded file formats? Generally though to reiterate what explans the larger file size beyond decompression if anything and what are the implications for quality??
