What codecs does R7 support for audio streaming?

This answer applies to R7 Mk1

The R7 has an upper data rate limit of ~1.5Mbps and will therefore play any supported file type at standard CD quality; 44.1KHz/16-bit or 0.705Mbps. You can calculate the data rate of your files using the following equation:

(sample rate * bit depth)/1000000 = data rate
(44100*16)/ 1000000 = 0.7056Mbps (705Kbps)

Below is a list of supported file types and their corresponding maximum bitrates:

AAC up to 320 Kbps
MP3 up to 320 Kbps
WMA up to 320 Kbps
RealAudio up to 64 Kbps
FLAC 1.5 Mbps
