ibastian posted a topic in Networking, Networked Audio, and StreamingAs suggested by this thread the first Apple TV has hardware capabilities to output 24 bit/96khz via SPDIF and likely higher via USB. In case anyone is interested, this week I set up my Apple TV (silver) to stream high resolution files hosted by a Logitech Media Server running on another computer. I used Squeezelite which is an excellent Squeezebox emulator with linux, mac and windows versions. I used the one precompiled for i386 and it is running on ubuntu. Some of the advantages of Squeezelite with ATV1: 1. High resolution as mentioned 2. Gapless play 3. Attach to network via Ethernet or Wifi (haven't tried wifi yet) 4. Multiple outputs (RCA or HDMI if you don't have a dac - USB or SPDIF if you do) 5. Inexpensive transport (approx. $100 for ATV and squeezelite is free) 6. Headless...control via tablet app or computer It sounds good. I'm using it with a DSPeaker Anti Mode but it's hard for me to compare with anything yet as I had formerly hooked up the DSPeaker via USB and it is not yet high resolution capable via USB. I've played several high resolution ALAC files and even some HDCD Rips (interestingly enough the DAC Reports these as 20bit 44.1khz even though they were saved as 24 bit in Cuetools). No pops or stutters....just locks on and plays!
