Well I hear (read) that people are saying that Aiff sounds better with Squeeze box...So I thought I give it a try.
But it seems hard to find a converter that keeps both the tags and the picture (jpg) during the convert.


I am around at the Slimdevices forum a while now and this nonsense comes up regulary. As always there is the theoretical explanation that decoding flac in the unit stresses the machine and sounds worse exactly because of this! End of rational discussion smile.gif
When you read on these claims come from the same pinheads that hear a Router sounding different in front of the Squeezebox, Ethernet cables sound different and even Windows7 server sounds better as Linux with delivering the bits to the network over several stations....

So for heavens sake if you really donīt want flac used you may use all advantages but telling Squeezebox Server to transcode flac->wav on playback, so sending decoded PCM to the box.
If you attach a HD directly to the Squeezebox Touch things may be different.
