Will Node2 work with FLAC and ALAC files on one NAS?

Post by wgallupe » Mon May 21, 2018 10:36 am

I have lots of FLAC files on my NAS. Now I would like to add some ALAC files from when I was using iTunes. Does the Node2 and/or BluOS care that there will be two different codecs? In other words, will wireless operation continue to be seamless?

My stored files are a mix of WAV and FLAC, the FLAC ones being a variety of differing bit rates. When I build a playlist, it runs seamlessly and by that I also mean "gapless". I can't imagine ALAC files doing anything differently.
