In file type settings should I set stream type to WAV or FLAC for playing back FLAC files? I have the stream type set for WAV at the moment. I changed it to FLAC, but when I tried to play some FLAC files I got no sound. Put it back to WAV and it plays FLAC ok again. But not getting gapless FLAC playback with stream type set to WAV.

What device are you using to play the files?

SB2 and later can play FLAC natively. I think the SB1 and prior can only
play WAV or MP3.

Yeah, for an SB1 you will need to leave it at FLAC to WAV.
