Hello! Left my active participation to the Amlogic threads here due to changing home and ... building a dedicated audio/video room in the new residence! So, I have a Nsatv that I use as a streamer and I was comparing the output of Tidal (premium, not Hi-fi, btw) from the Marantz Avr: from the Android device I only get Pcm 48khz, where inside the Avr the same subscription gives me AAC at 320kbps. The Tidal2 addon in Kodi/Spmc on the Shield shows AAC when streaming a song, and in a thread on Kodi forum the developer was thinking that maybe in Android we cannot do a passthrough for AAC, transcoding into Pcm. The hearing difference is not much, but valuable in my opinion. What is the state of the art about this subject?
Thanks for your interest
