I was looking to buy a good quality pair of headphones and an external DAC to go with them and wondered if Apple Music supported DSD512 output? I know it does high res lossless, but I'm not sure if that means DSD512 or not?

DSD is more of a Sony thing. Apple uses its own codecs for lossless (ALAC).
