Beatles USB playback


#1

Hello- Will any of these WD players play back the Beatles USB stick in FLAC mode? Will it play this stick in any audio mode? Thanks

The WDTV Live does play FLAC and it appears that it will play the 24bit FLAC files on the Beatles Stick.

I would suggest that you copy the FLAC files to another stick before playing. I would hate to see your ‘expensive’ stick corrupted.

RichUK- Thanks very much for the information. i just didnt want to buy one of these and not have it work.  What does it have for audio output? is it optical or coax digital audio? i would imagine that a DAC would give me better performance, but the price of this seems hard to beat.

It uses optical for the output. Sounds pretty good too.
