If part of the signal wraps because you are at the bandedge,
then you lose this part of the signal and the part it wraps over.
This is due to the signal coherently overlapping in frequency space.
As far as I understood the math, there isn't a way to seperate them
again (at least there isn't any I am aware of). Thus this signal energy
is lost for the decoding process.
