The Best Bitrate for WAV

Audio bitrate refers to the number of bits used per unit of playback time that shows audio after source coding. The pace of the sound is its bitrate. Generally speaking, the higher bitrate, the better the sound quality.

On the other hand, WAV is an uncompressed audio format developed by Microsoft. Although many devices and media players today work well with 32-bit WAV files, it is not the best bitrate setting for WAV because the 32-bit file doesn’t have ample storage space. Thus, you’re recommended to convert the WAV bitrate to 16-bit (1411 kbps), exactly the same as CDs.
