In addition to Will's suggestions: can you play other OGGs? Is there a
difference in quality, samplerate and original bit depth?
Furthermore, it's been a while since I worked with the Slimdevices, but
don't they come with a separate coopy of decoding tools? Maybe
exchanging your slimdevices copy of oggdec or whatever could help?
How about tags in the file? Different character sets perhaps?
Unlikely: but how about the health of the drive and your RAM? I know,
really unlikely with your tests.

Best wishes,
