Despite taking a lot of disk space, the uncompressed formats are said to be the most accurate. Either way, what would be the advantage of going for the WAV format as opposed to MP3 for example?

An mp3 file will never sound as good as a wav file. Some people don't care and only want to save space, so they go with the mp3.
