    How To Find Properties of Audio Files

    Not strictly a "Slim Devices" question, but, I am sure you knowledgeable folk will be able to help...

    I have loads of audio files (mainly .flac) and have recently acquired some hi-def ones (.dsd, .dsf)

    My question is how do I find out what Sampling Rate and bit-depth they are?

    On some, you can right-click in Windows Explorer and look at "Audio Properties" and it will tell you. However, some files have this information missing and .dsf files do not even have this option.

    Is there a bit of software or another technique that will let me examine my files to get the information?
