I've been thinking about buying a second SB, for use in the garage or kitchen, and to keep it within budget, i've been snoopinhg about on ebay.

Simple question, will a squeezebox version 1 play flac etc? the manual only mentions mp3.

cheers

SB1 will play FLAC transcoded to WAV. On an 11b wireless network be aware that this may pose bandwidth issues.

Thanks for the prompt replies.
Maybe I should stick to bread and jam for the next 2 months and buy a new SB3.

Cheers
