Supported Audio Formats

 For server playback and playback from a USB storage device, this unit supports the following music file formats.

 Music files of the following formats that can be played depend on the network server. For example, when using Windows Media® Player 12, not all music files in the PC can be played. The music files that can be played are the ones registered to the Windows Media® Player 12 library.

 Variable bit-rate (VBR) files are supported. However, playback times may not be displayed correctly.

 This unit supports the gapless playback of the USB storage device in the following conditions.

When WAV, FLAC and Apple Lossless files are continuously played back with the same format, sampling frequency, channels and quantization bit rate.

 Remote playback does not support the gapless playback.

 For playback via wireless LAN, the sampling rate of 88.2 kHz or higher, DSD and Dolby TrueHD are not supported.

Note:

 With remote playback, this unit does not support the following music file formats:

FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, DSD and Dolby TrueHD.
