[flac-dev] lossless compression's limit : 53% ?

What is nowadays lossless compression's limit (tested on a large library of
music samples, because of course, it depends on the music we do the tests
on) ?

I often see 53% - 62% of original WAV file's size. (
https://xiph.org/flac/comparison.html )

Are there algorithms that can losslessly compress to, say 40% of original
WAV file size (I don't mind about encoding time here) ?

Is there a figure that seems to be a limit : 50 - 53 % ?

Best regards.
