Flac and DTS 24 bit 96Khz Support on HD100 or HD 200?

I tired looking for documentation oh what the HD100 and HD200 support in terms of high-def audio and I couldn't find the info. I have both the HD100 and HD 200 and I am curious as to the following:

Does the HD200 and/or HD100 support 24 bit 96Khz flac files in stereo? In 5.1?

Does the HD200 and/or HD100 support 24 bit 96Khz DTS streams?

Thanks in advance for any info

If you're talking DTS 96/24, it should since it's backward compatible with DTS and DD, just requires a special decoder.

If you're asking about DTS-HD (which supports "real" 24/96 where as "DTS 96/24" sacrifices real bitrate for the extra resolution) then no, it can only extract the legacy DTS core from a DTS-HD stream.

As far as flac, it won't output 5.1, not sure what happens if you try to play a 5.1 and/or high resolution FLAC.

DTS 96/24 was that one , thanks.

Now I just need to find out if the flac high-resolution is supported.

I can always try playing it, but I'm not exactly sure that is a good test. for example, the airport express will play a 24 bit 96Khz apple lossless file but it will actually down sample to 44.1Khz 16 bit.
