    I have a machine running OS X Server that host my iTunes, iPhoto and other media all over the house - but now I have started building a library of better-than-cd quality (24bit/96khz FLAC mainly) files, which iTunes can not play and I need another solution for my stereo system then.

    Have been looking at the Denon DNP-720AE which looks to be a good choice, trouble is that to take advantage of the higher resolution audio I would need to stream it as DLNA - and my Mac don't do that...


    How to resolve this, how to stream DLNA from a Mac?

    rather than use FLAC you could use ALAC, which is Apple's version of lossless audio.

    But as far as I know AirPlay (the 720 also have AP) is only up to 24bit/44.1KHz - so the extra fine quality I have been buying will suddenly match more of less a CD (which is 16bit/44.1)...
    I want to be able to stream the full 24/96 signal
