Would someone from slimdevices be able to give a strong indication on whether client side FLAC decoding is a feature that is likely to fit into the squeezebox, or if this would need new hardware?

For me this is an important question in deciding whether to hold off buying a second unit (I have a slimp3) since I would definitely want the benefit of a lower WLAN bandwidth and less CPU hog when streaming FLAC.

Thanks,
Pascal

Pascal,

I have answered this many times already. We don't know until we do it,
and as I said this feature is still on the drawing board. Sorry, I
don't have a firm answer at this time.
