All our systems support 24-bit audio, but there are a few complications…
Multi-room manufacturers tend to brag about their systems’ file compatibility and playback promiscuity, but there’s always devil in the detail. The Panasonic All Connected models embrace MP3 and AAC, WAV, FLAC and ALAC up to 192k/24-bit, but not ultrahigh-res DSD.
On the Yamaha MCR-N470D and WX-010, MusicCast file-format support also includes 24-bit FLAC, AIFF, WAV and ALAC, plus AAC and WMA, but again not DSD.
Denon’s HEOS range offers the best out-of-the-box support. All second-generation HS2 active speakers play uncompressed WAV, ALAC, AIFF and FLAC up to 24-bit 192kHz, plus DSD 2.8MHz.
