[Flac-dev] Optimizing FLAC decoding

Hi all,

I am trying to run the FLAC decompression at optimal performance, but the
CPU utilization averages only around 60%. I have a suspicion that this is a
desired behaviour to enable run-time decompression without slowing any other
programs (i.e. players) down.

There should not be any IO bottlenecks on the machine that I am using.

Can anybody confirm my suspicions? Are there any workarounds?
