I think you need to clearly define acceptable in some objective way. I'm pretty sure that the codec will not be transparent on complex material to most listeners at that rate. So, how bad is good enough?
Would not a Laser turntable do much the same thing?
I never saw one, so I don't know what their capabilities were. However, my very nice, very good Technics linear tracker turntable (with upgraded linear contact stylus) was generally sneered at by the audiophiles of the time, despite specs superior to almost anything else at the time. Even then, they were all convinced that belt drive, heavy platters, granite plinths, expensive tonearms and endless fidgeting with them, etc were all a necessary part of obtaining that perfect sound. The rest of us bought CDs. So I would guess that regardless of it's performance, the laser turntable would have been a flop in either segment of the market.

I am running foobar2000 V1.4 on a Windows 10 PC. I have also installed the foo_upnp and foo_out_upnp components in the expectation of being able to generate a UPnP music stream with gapless playback capability. These components are at versions 0.99.49 and 1.0 respectively.
Unfortunately, when I try using BubbleUPnP with the foobar2000 renderer to play a couple of tracks which require gapless playback , I get occasional audio dropouts and a very audible click between the tracks. Where might I be going wrong?
Press the Apply or OK buttons on the Preferences window, and it will ask you to restart the player to apply the updates.
As stated in my OP, I had already pressed the OK button, which is what caused that obscure error message to appear. However, I have just tried following that by either clicking OK again or an adjacent button (can't remember which) and this generated the prompt to restart the player. All is now well, but this update process would not win any prizes for clarity!
Unfortunately, these updates have not resolved my original problem, but I will raise another thread on that topic.
