The files are ALAC. I always thought the Touch could natively play ALAC.
When I changed the File settings: -


The files play without any "stuttering". So the problem was the Touch
not being able to convert big ALAC files to FLAC quick enough?

One thing I noticed on the Touch it says "Bitrate: 2881kbps VBR
(converted to 705kbps FLAC)" This seems very odd as I though ALAC was as
efficient a format as ALAC (more or less).
