I've just acquired some APE lossless files and was going to convert them to flac. But first, does the SB system support APE in any way? I gather that it might convert on the fly to flac before sending out to the players.

Yes, SBS supports APE by converting it to Flac.

I would go ahead and convert them before adding them to the library. There's no loss in quality and Flac is better supported by SBS.

What is the best free converter for this task?

Foobar2000 does the job well.
Load the files up and right clicking gives you a context menu, one item is convert.
You may have to look for the APE/Monkeys Audio Plugin though.

Thank you, TurnipMan. I found the plugin and will try it later.
