View Full Version : SB2 really doesn't support 96kHz PCM on S/PDIF?

I've been waiting for a wireless-G version of the Squeezebox on the
assumption that it would support PCM sampling rates greater than 48kHz, but
reading the specs for the SB2 says that the digital outputs only support
44.1 and 48. Is this really true? If so, I'll have to wait for an SB3.

Thanks,
Kim

at this time, yes. 96kHz is the spec on the hardware, and eventually there MAY
be support for this or possibly higher. see the earlier posts from Sean on
this issue (titled: SB2 and PCM formats).

Do you seriously claim that you can hear sounds above 24 KHz? All the
way up to 48 KHz? Or are you trying to entertain your dog?
