Hi Stuart,

sorry for posting a new thread, I am trying to reply to your post but I have difficulty with the web browser interface at Gmane (I don't see how to be authorised from there) and I did set my email to digest (I have changed that now).

To answer your questions:

1) electric480 gives a reading 48.01 on the Big Ben
2) electric441 gives a reading 44.01 on the Big Ben

However as soon as I select another track from my collection (they are all uncompressed WAV files ripped with EAC), I see the Big Ben reading starting to drift and finally stabilised at 44.19. Would that be a problem specific to WAV files?

Thanks,
Michel

Michel,
Those two files came from a .wav file I ripped from a CD and were
encoded with Lame. One of the files was upsampled to 48.0k, and on my
Squeezbox, it sounds slowed down. It would seem your Squeezebox is
working correctly, and mine isn't! I assume when you play both my
files, they sound the same to you? That doesn't really answer your
question - maybe others can comment on your wave files.

Stuart.
