I think 24bit do not need any special treatment unless they are not 44.1kHz or 48kHz - then resampling using sox will be needed to play on SB2 - resampling is a load but not for a reasonable processor. Enabling logging player.source to INFO, play a "problem" file and then look at the log to

Other DLNA devices on LAN can cause LMS to be very busy and so delay sending data to players. Disable the UPnP/ DLNA Media Interface plugin to fix if this is the issue. SB Classic player has a smaller buffer than Radio so SB Classic woudl be more prone to rebuffer if there was a delay in
