mp3 - WAV conversion: how does this work?

mp3 is deemed by some audiophiles to be a poorer quality format than something like PCM WAV. Yet mp3 files can easily be converted to WAV. So the data that apparently is missing from mp3 files (and ergo detracting from the overall audio quality) must be there somewhere in those files, just hidden or compressed? Is that correct?? What exactly does an mp3 file leave out when it compresses what, presumably, is the original PCM WAV file of a track?? And if using an A/D converter of some description you convert something from vinyl direct to mp3 you presumably could then convert that track to WAV - so where would all that additional data comprising the uncompressed WAV file (that may be ten times larger than the mp3) come from? I've absolutely no IT knowledge at all - so forgive me if these are embarrassingly dumb/elementary questions. I'm just intrigued.....

I've got 6 copies of Jay-Z's H.O.V.A

I've got a ton of MP3's, I've finally got (most) of them tagged correctly, but now I need to weed out the dupes. Some albums I have fully duplicated, some albums only one or two songs, but I've got lots of duplicates and I need a good way to get rid of them. I'm on Windows, and would really not like to install iTunes if I don't have to. Help!

Eat a bag of DivX, Microsoft!

With the recent announcement that Microsoft will no longer be making Zune players, can anyone recommend a Windows based personal media player with an internal memory of AT LEAST 30GB that supports audio (mp3, FLAC, wma), video (wmv, mp4) and podcast subscriptions? Recommendations for a new media player/software to manage all that stuff would be helpful as well. (I'm just going to cut the Zune cord entirely when my current player finally gives out). Please note, I do not want an iPod or iTunes.

The reset and the restore, they do nothing.

Un-distorting a "jewish" sound clip.

I need help un-disorted a sound clip. There is a sound in Civilization 4 that plays whenever you discover Judaism. I could not place it--and I know my Jewish prayers--so I dug in the install folder and found the full file. It is heavily distorted in a way I cannot quite figure out. Could someone help me see if this was ever a prayer to begin with, or was just random vocalizations approved as being "Jewish enough" in order to avoid offending people with actual prayers?

Device that makes mp3s sound deeper, richer, etc.

I found and immediately lost a link the other day that talked about a device that made mp3s sound richer, deeper, perhaps like vinyl (or at least not as compressed as they truly are). It was a rather simple device and the article talked about one brand as low as $150. I don't expect anyone to find the exact page especially as I am not being too descriptive. It was on an audiophile site and was recommended...not one of those 'buy this cheapie/crap product that screws up your music' sort of thing. If anyone knows what I am talking about or has something else that they know that works for improving mp3 sound through stereo, I'm interested. Pardon me for the nebulous post. It is the best my brain can recall. Thanks for your techie/audiophile input.
