I'm thinking of starting to get my music as FLACs rather than MP3s but first I'd like to make sure my network can cope with streaming FLAC to 4 SqueezeBoxes simultaneously.

I can run the Network Test on my SBB & SB3 just fine. Initialy I couldn't find the option on my SBR and then found that it's menu shortcut was disabled on the controller. After enabling it I could run the test but I'm unsure what I was actually testing.

It said something along the lines of "Test to Kitchen" where Kitchen is the name of my SBR. Is the Network test a test of streaming from the SBC to the SBR (which is how it's worded), the server to the SBR, the SBC to the sever or something else?

Thanks

Server to SBR. (The same way your music goes.) You need a minimum of 2000 @ 100% to consider flac.
Build some test files and give them a listen as well.
