Amazon Lossless Audio

I believe the HC800 is capped at 16/44.1 on the resolution.  As for the EA-5 or EA-3 just note if you want to achieve full 24/192 you are restricted to a maximum of 2 streams otherwise the resolution drops just slightly (24/96 & 24/48) the more you add.  It is of course arguable if one might notice that difference and there are a number of other factors that can contribute (source & equipment).

Here an extract from my HC800 controller.

So before the recent addition of an old "C4 Speaker Point "to my Garden "Gazebo", I was listening to HC800's Advanced Audio with a resolution of 192kHz/24 bit.

Now it looks like I have downgraded the sound to 96kHz/24 bit.

It's still pretty good and the ease at which I've gained C4 music right at the end of my garden without major wiring and effort is worth it, certainly for summer.

Replying to myself..............not good.

I switched the "C4 Speaker Point" into Advanced Audio mode & realised that the HC800 was then actually pumping out Advanced Audio at 96kHz/24bit whereas before ithe Audio Quality  Resolution was "Greyed out" and wasn't indicating what it was at.

I tried to select 192kHz/24bit but the Active Quality never changed from 96kHz, so out of 3 available settings, 44, 96 & 192 only the lower 44kHz & 96kHz were available.

When the Speaker Point is not switched to Advanced Audio the options are greyed out completely as seen in previous message, so not sure what the basic resolution is for Digital Audio (non Advanced)?

Anyway, for convenience, I'll still suffer the lower Audio resolution, whatever that may be, for the added convenience of the Speaker Point..........at least for now.

Just adding the speaker point to your project will lose any advanced audio completely.  Speaker points aren't capable of it.

I am really surprised as I don't know how the HC800 is able to play anything beyond 16/44.1.  I thought that was the limit of the built in DAC?  

I found an older thread that was talking about this very subject.
