I know it's been a long time, but I'm now in the same boat as you
were then and I've found a solution :)

It's a bit long winded but this does the trick.
flac -d -c --force-raw-format --endian=little --sign=signed "$file" |
mplayer -rawaudio channels=2:rate=96000:samplesize=3 -format s32le -demuxer
I also have a tiny little C program (40 lines of source) that does
nothing but play a 24/96 raw audio stream on stdin which works fine in
place of mplayer in the above pipeline. If time permits I may work this up
into a self contained flac player.
Now - did you or anyone else ever find anything better ?
