Does your Squeeze and Studio box have similar sound cards?
While "aplay --help" lists S24_LE and S24_BE as recognized sample
formats it also says "Some of these may not be available on selected
If aplay works on Squeeze it might be that the sound card on that box
supports 24bit but your card on Studio doesn't. I'm guessing
sndfile-play converts the output to whatever the card wants.
On a side note asound happily plays ordinary text files, like /etc/services .
Erik, when can we expect sndfile-play to do that :)
