FLAC error - Unsupported sample rate
I'm trying to play some FLAC files on my SONOS system and I get the error message: "unable to play ..... it is encoded at unsupported sample rate 9600 hz" I've never seen this error message before. Does this mean the end of the road or is there a work around? Could I re-digitize them at a different sample rate because my other FLAC files play fine. Maybe SONOS has plans to change their specs or is it the old debate about whether the human ear can appreciate the difference in quality or not? Any help would be appreciated as I'm new to this game.

They concede that on-the-fly downsampling is something worth considering.
Clearly it's a matter of personal preference but I don't think you can go wrong with dbPoweramp, it has a batch conversion mode so you can select a folder of files and it'll chomp through the lot pretty quickly.
But you have heard them (more or less). The public telephone network is based around 8kHz sampling, albeit at 8-bit resolution. 😉
Not as hard as listening to tracks that Sonos can't play
Therefore I believe it's relatively straightforward. There may, however, be an impact on time or your computer's resources whilst it is doing the job.
