Does the Squeezebox stream files in the format they are stored (either FLAC, MP3 or AAC in my case) and then convert them internally, or does Slimserver covert them into WAV and then transmit them?

If it's a format the player can decode itself (currently MP3, WMA, FLAC,
WAV, OGG), it will stream the original data. Only formats which are not
natively supported will be transcoded to FLAC (SB2/3) or WAV (SB).
