...I use Amadeus Pro to store AIFF 24bit/44.1 needledrops on my MacBook. I then convert them to Apple Lossless in iTunes, and then make a playlist for the SB3, but if I use shuffle mode on the SB3 and one of them comes along I get a horrendous continuous digital clack-clack sound, what have I done wrong?

Thanks y'all.

Which server version are you running? There seems to be an issue with 24-bit Apple files at the moment - you can try transcoding to FLAC on the fly - settings - advanced - file types...

I'm not near it at the moment but it's the one that was released the other day - 7.4.2 I think?

It's fixed in 7.5 i tried with 24/96 alac the other day.

seems to be that we are now using faad2 for transcoding instead of alac

Thanks folks, should I download 7.5 now for my purposes?

Or just wait for it to be released and make temp copies in the meantime as for example 24bit Flac they work perfectly with squeezebox.

7.5 is very beta, and uses a test server for mysqueezebox.com ( a new acount is needed )

If you like things to "just work" I don't want to advice you to use a beta. I just wanted to point out that the issue has been found and fixed.
