... and hopefully access will be integrated into apps like LInn Kazoo and Lumin.
It looks interesting, but I can't see a simple way to get the full quality into a Linn DS for example.

I’ve tried it for a few days. Luckily my 2010 MacBook Pro has a mini toslink out which brings ultra HD music to the linn mdsm.

If I stream it via iPhone it’s only CD quality as airplay won’t allow higher than 44.1/16bit.

It’s a small library for her quality though.
