Lots of unanswered questions this evening about which current Apple products will support the (ALAC?) hi-res 24/48 and 24/192 formats, and whether/when third-party hardware support might materialise.

The first significant/serious HiFi manufacturer I can remember getting cosy with Apple was B&W with their Zeppelin, which for a time was sold in Apple stores. Their relative success then led onto a mini-craze of myriad similar speaker docks with Airplay. It will be interesting which (if any) HiFi companies get on board with Apple again or hold back for fear of getting their fingers burnt.

Having hedged my bets this evening, my annual renewal to Qobuz is definitely at risk.

I currently have an annual Qobuz sub and and an ongoing Apple Music Family sub. The former is up for renewal next month so I’ll postpone signing up again and just use Apple.
