I thought this would be useful information to add to the debate about
flac (i.e. streaming PCM) to a wireless Squeezebox.

As some may recall from previous posts, I have always been able to
stream PCM to my wireless SB1 with no problems. However, it seems that
this was largely because the SB was only a few feet from the WAP.

I have since moved house and, currently my SB is at the other end of the
house to the WAP with signal strength betweem 20% and 50%.

Guess what? I get dropouts when playing back flac files!

So, it seems that signal strength needs to be at a certain level in
order for flac playback to be flawless.
