FLAC Unsuported sample rate

What sample rates for FLAC files work with Sonos Music Library. I have music from a variety of sources, so they tend to vary.

Sonos documentation does not specify: https://support.sonos.com/en-ca/article/supported-audio-formats-for-sonos-music-library, since I’m using S2 - 24-bit should work and this list should mention sample rates is some aren’t going to play.

I get the unsupported sample rate 24b96000Hz and 24b192000Hz errors. 44100Hz seems to work, but that’s 16 bit?

Before I go downsampling my entire music library this would be good to know. I’m aware I could host a server to do the work or use Plex.

Highest bit level is 24.  Highest sample rate is 48 kHz.

@Gregito Read the first paragraph in the article you posted:

“Sonos systems support mono (1-channel) or stereo (2-channel) audio files with sample rates up to 48kHz.”
