I *think* I know the answer to this question, but I wanted to get some confirmation. So, it seems iTunes can support 24/96 files no problem. I have been able to convert 24/96 FLAC to apple lossless and play them in iTunes with no issues. However, what I am wondering is if you can stream the high def files via AirPlay to an Airplay device in full resolution. My thought is that this is not something that is currently supported. I am pretty sure that this is because of 1) Regardless of the source file, iTunes will convert it to 16/44 Apple Lossless prior to sending the file over AirPlay 2) I think all the AirPlay capable devices, like my Yamaha RX-A720, expect a 16/44 file. So, for things like the new LZ 24/96 FLACs it seems I have to store the FLAC somewhere else on my file server and stream that directly to the receiver. This works well Can anybody confirm if what I said here is correct?
