I downloaded a 96kHz/24bit flac album and it plays distorted through Winamp and foobar2000

I have a (onboard sound) ADI 1988B - 8-channel HD audio codec, Supreme FX audio card on an Asus Commando under Server 2008 (Vista x64 BlackHawk driver) playing SPDIF to a Yamaha RX-V450 receiver.

96kHz/24bit .wav files play just fine.

I went in the driver configuration and player output configs to select 24bit and 96kHz settings.

Didn't seem to help.

What will fix this?

I have FLAC 1.2.1.exe in foobar2000 and I converted it to .wav and back to .flac. It still seems distorted.

Is there a better way to invoke the flac CL process?

I'm not 100% sure so this could be wrong. But I think foobar has flac decoding built-in and that the flac CL version(1.2.1 or whatever) that you have to specify in the foobar converter is only for encoding. Now since the problem is with the decoding you're stuck as far as foobar goes (though someone smarter than me might come up with a solution).

Anyway I just bit the bullet and did it straight from a command prompt.

>flac -d Smoove_Funk_Thang_FLAC_96KHz_24bit.flac
>ren Smoove_Funk_Thang_FLAC_96KHz_24bit.flac tmp.flac
>flac Smoove_Funk_Thang_FLAC_96KHz_24bit.flac

After this you end up with three files. The original corrupt flac renamed to tmp.flac, the new fixed flac which now has the same name as the original and finally the wave file. If all went well then just delete tmp.flac and the wav files and you're done.

If I was doing more than one though then I'd either write a batch file or find some other front-end to do it.
