[Chugalug] FLAC w/ Kindle

I use a Subsonic server on my media server, which will stream FLAC to my
Kindle Fire HD.  Note that the server software is free but Subsonic Android
apps aren't, but it's cheap, easy to set up, and the relevant apps are in
the Amazon App Store (no sideloading required).

I'm not sure if it will be in the Kindle app store or not, but ES File
explorer will let you mount your shares. From there you have several media
players that can handle flac.

So I have a TB or two of (100% completely owned silver pressed
originals) Audio CDs in FLAC format stored on my network.  The volume
housing music is currently attached to a Samba server, as that has
proven convenient for the desktops and laptops on the network.  Girls
got Kindle Fires for X-Mas.  So questions to the list, is it possible
to play FLAC files on the Kindles across the network, and if so, what
is the way? Please note, being able to play FLAC is a non-negotiable
hard point in this exercise, I'm not interesting in converting my
collection (again as it were, since I originally chose and used a
different, less-supported lossless format until about half-way through
the ripping/encoding process) :)

TIA!
