Prehaps you are expecting CD quality audio from a lossy format further degraded by a streaming server that most likely downcodes the stream to 128Kbps. SAM in itself is NOT ever considered an MP3 player, it sources an mp3 lossy format through an encoder to a streaming server and in turn delivers it to listeners who could hardly tell the difference. using lossless formats like wav and FLAC have always resulted in better quality however I doubt the end user (listener) cares or can tell the difference. Just my opinion.

Well, the audio problems I listen to, are directly from SAM ... thus before the streaming chain.

Of course, when I listen to the radio via streaming, there is a further degradation and using FLAC is less perceivable than with MP3.

But my concern is that MP3 are already degraded into the SAM's players.
No matter if I use 320kbps ones or 128 kbps
