I go straight from CD Wave > FLAC. No issues. 1 less step. :D

I never save to WAV anymore. I go straight to FLAC.
using CDWav editor? I was taught that the algorithm in CDWav editor was not as "clean" for converting from wav to flac. I have always used TLH for the conversions. Was I taught wrongly? OR is it personal preference?

You were taught wrong. So was I. At some point someone claimed (incorrectly) that the FLAC conversion in CD Wave Editor was inferior and people kept repeating it so it became de facto.

There's no appreciable difference. I'd be shocked if the two programs didn't just both use the same code from FLAC frontend.

I convert straight to FLAC from CD Wave. No tracked out wav files for me.

Glad this subject came up.  I was also confused by DirectWAV conversion and never used it.  I completely forgot you could convert to FLAC using the program.  Solid re-upping of a thread!
