In fact it looks like all Panasonic 2012 BR Players are supporting FLAC.
Anyone's already got their hands on this? Review? Gapless? Albumart? Replaygain?
I would consider this a milestone and certainly will be looking for an unit...

Gapless : No;

Question about this. I was under the impression that the "gapless" issue was only applicable to MP3s (and maybe other lossy codecs). If I remember correctly, the last frame of an MP3 has to be totally filled and gets padded with a millisecond or so of silence to fill out the frame. "Gapless data" is an extension to the format that gets written in the LAME header, which tells the encoder how to overlap the audio for that millisecond to eliminate the audible gap.

But since FLAC is lossless, there's no "gap" that gets added - each sample remains identical from first to last.

So any issue with gaps appearing between FLACs would be down to poor coding in the player, and not anything intrinsic to the FLAC files?
