I have applied one of Soundcheck's tweaks to my Touch (I've disabled FLAC on the Touch and forced mysqueezebox server on the computer to convert FLAC to PCM). I am very pleased with the results (especially when playing hi-def 24-bit/94 KHz FLAC, or even 24-bit/44.1 KHz, as in the Beatles remasters).

I have ripped my entire library to AIFF (I'm on the Mac), so my question is: are there any differences between AIFF and WAV when playing through the Touch? Is WAV the only native format that Touch can do knee-jerk, or is AIFF also hard-wired into Touch?

Thanks.

AIFF is the same thing as WAV, it just has the bits flipped. They are the same and both are supported.

Thanks Andy, that's a big relief for me. For a while there I was thinking "oh no, what if I have to re-rip my entire collection to WAV?!?"
