Will the default settings of SS6.0.1 know to stream flac to my SB2, for flac sources? What do the default settings stream to my SB1 if the source is flac? PCM, WMA?

Each player type requests an audio stream in preferred order. The server will
then find a compatible conversion, or stream directly if possible. SB2 chooses
FLAC, PCM, MP3. SB1 chooses AIF, WAV, MP3, and slimp3 or http clients do MP3
only. SB1 wireless will default to 320kbps mp3, but can be set to WAV in teh
player settings for bitrate limiting.

If you go into player settings->audio, and change the bitrate limiting, then the
server will limit to mp3 playback at the rate chosen. "no limit" lets the
player have its normal default preference of format.
