Tried this:
When I'm in there, even the 128k file
the "PCM:" bar hits zero quite often and bar never exeeds the first 10%.
It goes max to the ":" of "PCM:"

With the 192k file it's the same. "PCM:" goes to zero every few seconds.
The "codec" bar displays negativ values sometimes.

Could the large files be the problem? Both files are larger than from
160 - 240 MB in size.
