Rockbox can play PCM WAV on archoses right now (on Recorder V1,
V2, FM Recorder and the Ondios). The Player/Studio won't be able
to play wav.
WAV playback is just not yet integrated into the core, but
possible via a plugin. This plugin supports all standard sample
rates (8/11.025/12/16/22.05/24/32/44.1/48 kHz) 16 bit mono and
When wav playback is going to be integrated into the core,
support will be extended to also play 8 bit wav, and aiff with
the same range as wav. Most probably simple compression schemes
like ADPCM will also be supported.
Another interesting area will be mod playback. The archoses
should be capable of playing at least the standard 4 channel
mods (Soundtracker/Noisetracker/Protracker/Startrekker, MED) and
perhaps also some 8 channel formats.
