No Audio output with FLAC files

Post by mekong56 » Sat Aug 06, 2011 7:40 pm

I can get FLAC files to play, but no audio output. Using a Mac Mini out via USB to a dB Audio Labs Tranquility DAC.

Do your FLAC files play correctly using your Mac's built-in audio (selected in Decibel's preferences)?

No they won't.

Also, most all of my FLAC files are not visible to choose from. How do I get them to show up in the iTunes window?

FLAC files will never show up in the iTunes browser because that data comes straight from iTunes, which doesn't handle FLAC. To open a FLAC file with Decibel you can drag it to the playlist or use the File -> Add Tracks... menu item.

Got it. It was all user error :)!! Got audio output now. This is quite a nice sounding player.
