That's correct, squeezebox will play decoded flac without transcoding -
it's sent as PCM, and the whole path is lossless - what comes out the
S/PDIF is what was on the CD.

We are investigating the possibility of running FLAC client side, to
save network bandwidth. I've estimated the CPU requirement for our
processor and I believe it'll work, but the proof is in the putting, as
they say.
