I would like to understand what Audirvana uses to determine wav file properties.
I have a 16bit/44.1KHz wav file, the right Audirvana panel correctly says Type= WAVE 16bit / 44.1kHz Stereo, Duration 03:10 Bitrate 1411 kbps. Plays correctly
I imported the file into Audacity and exported as 16bit wave. Audirvana, for this file, displays Type= WAVE, Duration Bitrate. NOTE that the file type is generic wave, no duration or bitrate. Plays correctly
I checked the wav header with a hex editor, they are EXACTLY the same
I exported the first file using Audacity to 24bit and 32bit, Audirvana shows the correct information for type, duration and bitrate
The above are just examples, I have a number of wav files where Audirvana shows only type WAVE and no other information
Can someone please explain what Nirvana is looking for, to display the correct Type, Duration, Bitrate?
