Way to enable Sonos 24 bit?

Seems SONOS supports 24bit/48kHz FLAC according to this:

I can see Roon converting streams to 16/48.

Is there a way to enable 24 bit output by messing with a config file somewhere in Roon?

No, this is not a limitation of Roon, but Sonos is not able to play 24 bit files. Only supports 16 bits. FLAC best practices (according to Sonos)

@DeLub if you read the Sonos forum post I linked to you’ll see that since update 7.2 the new Flac library internal to the speakers can handle 24 bit files.

It’s unofficial but was curious if Roon has a configuration file I can edit and force 24 bit instead of 16 to my Sonos devices. Just out of curiosity.

From the post I learn mostly that this is an unsupported side effect from version 7.2 and that the forum members are wondering wether the extra 8 bits contain something else than “junk”.

But you’re right that Sonos apparently accepts 24 bit files. The question is: would this lead to increased SQ.

I cannot answer your question though: I’m not aware of a config file that can be hacked.

When I updated my sonos controller app on android last night I noticed there was an item in the settings menu that I never noticed previously.

The option was for audio compression. It was greyed out so I was unable to go in to the menu without doing a firmware update on all my sonos devices so I never bothered at the time but I will have to have a look when I get home tonight.

Looks like that’s for the Line-in on the speaker. The options are simply Automatic, Uncompressed and Compressed

Ah right OK. I was excited at first but I only use the sonos playbase in the living room for the TV and use the play 5 in the kitchen when cooking so I don’t do any critical listening.

Just want this to work out. Sonos only does 24 bit from local, not from streaming. Roon is both local and streaming, but seems Iike it ought to be able to “spoof” being local, but maybe that’s a pipe dream.
