Default Sonos Players & 96 kHz/24 bit flac files

I notice that some high resolution flac files (96 kHz/24 bit files) won't play on Sonos. They report that the files are encoded improperly. The same files will play as expected using windows/MedidMonkey and other flac players. Such files ae available from HDTracks.com. This disappointing. I hope that this will be remedied in the future.

Welcome to the forum.

There is a long standing request for 24/96 support in this thread. Feel free to record a "+1" there.

Default 24Bit support

+1 from me as well I would even pay to upgrade my units if they need more RAM or faster processors.

Silly to have a high end setup and have to down sample 25% of my CD's

I thought CDs were 16/44?

Hi Zonker92,

Yes originally there was only one standard PCM16/44.1KHz then along came SACD's with 1bit sampling, PCM 24bit/96KHz encoded and I think there are even some PCM 32bit encoded ones but they are not standard to my knowledge.

But I am getting of topic so back to the yes please add this capability.

Peter

SACD's do not use PCM, so have nothing to do with 24/96.
There is no downsampling, but re-encoding might be required.

Default +1

I also hope for HQ support, preferable 24/192. If necessary I'd even buy a new player for my main listening room where amps and speaker would fully support higher quality. For the existing players it would be sufficient for me if the player can downsample the files and still play them.
All in all this issue will one the long be one of the reasons to kick out Sonos and switch to a different brand.

I agree, I already have two systems on my main stereo. Sonos and another to play 24 bit 48/88/96/172/196 files. Sonos needs to get in the game before it's too late.

So tell us, what's your second source?
