Going .ape over R0's lack of Monkey's Audio compatibility?
 
What chance the adding of Monkey's Audio to the codecs handled by the R0 in a future firmware update? O.k., it's not that much of a hassle to convert to FLAC, but a direct ability to read .ape files would be most welcome.

How does "virtually no chance at all" sound? Not many players support .ape files and I don't expect that to change soon.

FLAC is so much more commonplace, if I was you I would just convert all APE files I owned to FLAC and use it in the future instead of APE.:)

There is no chance. Firmwares do not add features, they just fix bugs.
If you knew how crazy and long is the internal process to change anything, even a minor thing, you would better understand what I mean...

Thanks for the replies. I don't have that many .ape files so it will not be too much of a chore to convert the to FLAC (which I tend to use as the default anyway).
