What is the file extension on your aac files? .mov, .m4a or something else?
There was some talk about transcoding on this topic. If you have a
Squeezebox it shouldn't be transcoding to anything, simply decoding
to raw and sending to the server. Any modern machine should be able
to handle that.

I'm wondering if you're somehow going aac->mp3 instead of raw,
which might cause stutters on a slow machine or a machine in
heavy use.
