[Freeswitch-users] Transcoding question

Is transcoding a wav file something that I should try to avoid? I have  
my files encoded as 16kbit, 8000hz, mono files, yet still in the logs  
I see:

2009-05-27 11:55:18 [DEBUG] switch_ivr_play_say.c:1084  
switch_ivr_play_file() Codec Activated L16 at 8000hz 1 channels 20ms
2009-05-27 11:55:18 [DEBUG] switch_core_io.c:649  
switch_core_session_write_frame() sofia/internal/ 
5853297721 at receive message [TRANSCODING_NECESSARY]

I have to think that not transcoding would be easier on the server,  
yet I don't know why it needs to transcode the audio file if it is, I  
think, already in the correct format for that codec...
