You can't set the bitrate for FLAC as it's a lossless format and the bitrate will be what is required to encode the audio data. You can lower the bitrate by lowering the number of channels (e.g. use mono) and also decrease sample rate.

Thanks for the answer. I am referring though  to the bit depth, as in 16, 24 or 32 bits. It is true that each of the later will require a higher bitrate, which I can not control. But FLAC allows 24 and 32 bit audio. In a section of the user manual about external encoders it is stated that Radioboss delivers 16 bit pcm audio. Maybe that is my question. Is there a way to make it deliver 24 or 32 bit pcm audio? Hope this clarifies my question

Currently it's not possible as it always sends 16 bit integer PCM data to the custom encoders. I'll add it to the list for the future versions, I think it'll be added in one of the future updates.

Maybe to the internal server arquitecture too. Thanks
