One line summary The identification and validation of esoteric audio file formats.
Detailed description Little-used, esoteric and proprietary audio file formats present a significant challenge in securing and preserving digital content.  Without support from common and current software tools, the validation of audio files relies on the success of transcoding; which, in turn, depends on the accuracy and error reporting of software used for conversion. 
Issue champion Adam Tovell
Possible approaches The addition of signatures to the Pronom, allowing identification with Droid.  Creation of new Jhove modules.
