I’m a newbie Audiophile and love Hi-Res music but don’t fully understand what it’s all about other than the quality of sound is better.
I have a Sonos system at home that comprises of an Arc, Sub and two One speakers L+R.
I keep all my music files on my PC and a backup drive. These files are mostly Apple AAC/M4A format that I listen to through the Sonos app on my PC as well as on my phone.
However, I recently purchased two Hi-Res albums online U2’s Achtung Baby and All That You Can’t Leave Behind. They are both 96Khz/24bit FLAC files but Sonos will not play them and brings up a message saying;
“Unable to play this track - it is encoded at unsupported rate 24b96000Hz”
Is there a way round this to play these files without compromising the sound? If this isn’t possible, then what are my options to play Hi-Res music through my Sonos speakers?
I have been able to listen to Hi-Res music through my Sonos speakers but this was through using Amazon Music streaming service.
Now I want to play my own Hi-Res music files stored on my PC but can’t with Sonos.
