To convert original UNCOMPRESSED WAV that is encoded with PCM codec you can't get it.
With Microsoft ADPCM codec you can get 32 kbps, but MONO not stereo.

The quality of these file is bad. So, if you use GSM 6.10 codec you will get even 13 kbps MONO or 17 kbps MONO, but with terrible quality.

But there is a hope for you. If you really ... but really want to have small WAV file with good quality you can convert a WAV file with 1141 kbps to 16 kbps, but with a codec that will be codec with a  lossy algorithm such is MP3 codec:


If you have any question you can freely ask me.
