Default D2 showing wrong bitrates

i recently converted a couple of FLAC albums to 320kbps using Foobar2K and just realised that my D2 shows it as NOT 320kbps. one album shows as 254kbps and another album shows as 207kbps.. what gives?

sound is fine, does not affect playback, just curious as to why it shows the bitrate wrongly?

At variable bitrate, the D2 usually grabs the average for the whole song, and obviously it varies every time.

If you look at the bitrate in foobar2K, down in the bottom left, it changes every second or so. The Cowon just locks in the average.

No problem. Hope I'm right. You're encoding from FLAC to Mp3 right? Cause that's what I get. One song at 256, the next at 234.
