The song is encoded in m4a by Nero
Yes, it does actually.
The SB requires AAC music files to be configured for “fast start” streaming.
The only encoder I’ve found that can do this is iTunes 😥
the reason for the silence is the SB is scanning through the file looking for some information that it needs.
When configured for fast start streaming this bit of the file is places at the very beginning so it’s the first thing that is read.
I’m lead to believe that if you put that track into an iPod it will suffer the same problem.
