Folks: I tried to present this in the Software forum but kept getting less-than-useful advice (e.g., "AirPlay is limited to 16/44.1"). It is probably my fault because I explained the issue in a confused manner - I tend to do that when I am confused... 8^) Here's the issue: I have some music that I ONLY have in Hi-Res. Suppose I wanted to play one of these files over an AirPlay link to an Apple Express in the kitchen - how do I do that? Remember, I already know that AirPlay is limited to 16/44.1. Also please remember that I use AirPlay all the time with iTunes (about 9,000 tracks @ 16/44.1) to several different locations throughout the house. So the essence is: Are there any players which will convert 24/96 on the fly or do I have to convert the 24/96 files to 16/44.1 and use iTunes? NOTE: I don't like the latter solution because it adds a lot of overhead and takes additional storage space. I use Audirvana+ v1.4.6 on my desktop and it works great. What I can't figure out is whether Audirvana can be used to do this on the fly conversion - and if so, how to actually do that (e.g., ...what settings? ...what signal path?) - or if I need another player that will do 24/96 to 16/44.1 down-conversion on the fly or if I just have to make seperate down-converted copies of all my Hi-Res files if I want to hear them anyplace except my desktop... Not sure how to do this but would prefer to avoid this strategy. Or, do I just have a distorted view of what is possible? Thanks, Mike
