AIFF files basically just contain raw PCM, like WAVE (only in big-endian byte order, which is more efficient on non-intel hardware). FLAC (like most other formats) gets decoded to PCM on playback. The PCM FLAC gets decoded to is bit-by-bit identical to what the AIFF file contains. So unless Squeeze box introduces errors during decoding, there is no technical reason one would sound different from the other. AIFF files are just going to be some 40% larger, and don't have a well-supported means for storing metadata.
