View Full Version : SB2 Satisfaction -- gapless!



2005-04-01, 07:26
I currently do OGG to PCM with an SB1 and it's gapless (which is very
important to me). OGG to MP3 isn't - I assume because the decoder in the SB1
doesn't understand the LAME gapless tags. Can anyone confirm whether the
decoder in SB2 understands the gapless tags?

No idea... if I had mp3s, I'd tell you. If nobody else chimes in, I'll
re-encode some album as mp3s and give it a whirl. For my setup with one ogg
file per track and being sent as flac to the SB2, it is gapless.
Doing ogg to pcm or mp3 on the SB1 wasn't for me.

It does not...yet.

Well I am using the new Slim Server 6 with my beloved SLIMP3 and have
to say that the gaps between songs has been improved quite a bit.
Using LAME encoded "Abbey Road" as my reference I would have to be
listening quite closely to detect any gaps. Even when listening
critically I sometimes could not detect the gaps. I know this is not
true gapless but it is getting darn close. I am not sure if this has
anything to do with Slim Server 6 but I'd like to think so. Vidur, the
true mp3 gapless playback you hint at, would that only be available to
the SB2 or would it trickle down to the SB1 & SLIMP3? I also want to
take this time to thank the whole slim devices team for continuing to
make my great SLIMP3 even better!

Here here! I've got a pair of SliMP3's and my SB2 is showing up
today. The smooth migration path and consistent integration between
all of the SlimDevices products has completely exceeded my original
expectations. I can hardly wait to see the SB2 though -- which lucky
room is going to be blessed with the beautiful new screen?!?!
