    Thanks Robert for your reply.
    I have a huge Hi-Res library (few 32/192 albums though).
    It doesn't make sense for me not to play them as is!
    All 24bit from 48 till 192khz are playing without any problem. Only the 32/192 have this distorted sound!
    Cheers

    I suppose what I'm driving at (while trying not to cause offence) is why are you bothering with such high resolution files anyway!

    Robert,
    I'm bothered about the 32/192 because the albums I have sound much better than the same ones that I have in 16/44.1.
    And when you have the hardware and the files available to play, it make sense to try and solve the problem.

    Where do 32/192 albums come from, I have never seen them anywhere? If you do transcode to a lower bit depth they will still sound better than other versions of a better mastering was used.

    As I explained on the other thread (apologies for the double-thread):
    The format is .wav.
    I tried to convert one of the files to FLAC and ALAC and both failed.
    But I could covert it to WAVE using dbpoweramp and it worked and could be played with LMS.

    Anyway, I thought there was a setting to be done on LMS to play such files, but it seems that LMS doesn't have this cabapility yet.
    So, I'll leave it here and for thos files I will use JRiver as I always did.

    Thanks to you and all the forumers for your help.
