is it possible to have my flac collection transcoded to 2 SB1s - not
transcoded (stay flac) to an SB2 and still sync them all? (as a possible
wrinkle, 1 SB1 and the SB2 are wireless and another SB1 is wired)

No problem - I have SB1, SBG (both wireless), SB2 (wired and wireless), all happily syncing from flac files. They are less happy with streamed sources but absolutely no problems with music served locally.

When you mix synchronised SB1s and SB2s I believe the server
moves to the lowest common denominator for the stream format.
In your case I guess all SBs would receive wav.

I think this means that the strict answer to your question is no.
Of course, it will all still work, just your SB2 will be receiving
WAV rather than Flac.
