Hi,

will ST support flac files in 24/192 format? If not, what is the workaround?

Thank you.

24/192 files are automatically downsampled via SOX to 24/96... unless you are running the server on a NAS with limited processing power

If you are paranoid like me create a file called custom-convert.conf and put the lines below in there. Squeezebox Server has to find this file in the same directory as the alredy existing convert.conf.



flc flc transcode *
# FT:{START=--skip=%t}U:{END=--until=%v}D:{RESAMPLE=rate -v %d}
[flac] -dcs $START$ $END$ -- $FILE$ | [sox] -q -t wav - -t flac -C0 - $RESAMPLE$


This ensures the best possible resampling quality for hi-res files. Although CPU usage will be slightly higher.

(I didn't say you will here a difference but you can graphically have a look at the improvement here http://src.infinitewave.ca/.)
