    Hello,

    I adjusted the midi settings in Utilities to of 96Khz 24 bit.
    I was expecting my Apple TV Gen2 to start outputting a 96 Khz stream to my DAC, but the DAC indicated 44 Khz. Any one know how to set this up so I can play High resolution 96Khz/24 bit files?

    AppleTV downsamples all 24-bit Linear PCM streams to 16/44 LPCM before passing them over toslink.

    Actually it's 16/48 for some reason. I really wish they would add an update to allow the ATV to pass 24/96. I would think that it would be capable.

    perhaps they are limiting the capabilities of the ATV to match the quality of music downloads from itunes.
