View Full Version : 24 bit flac

I recently (OK, today) received my Squeezebox 2 (wireless). So far so good.

However, I have a lot of 24 bit recordings of live music in flac. It was my understanding that the SB2 can handle this. However, when I play those files I get lots of pop and static, and very little (No?) music. Is it possible to play these files?

Also, I noticed in my settings that flac streams to wav. Does that mean it's still lossless over wireless? I saw some posts to the contrary. Is SlimServer downsampling my music?

Thanks,
buzd

SB2 should be streamed FLAC by default. Flac to Wav conversion should
only happen if you've disabled the built in flac to flac in server
settings, file types. SB1 would default to Wav over wired, and 320
kbps MP3 over wireless.
