Is an Apple TV capable of playing Hi-Res? Do any Apple TV apps allow you to?

I'm not even sure about the 24 bit (vs. 16-bit).  They give two output choices (16 bit or automatic), so maybe it does.  Also, it will ONLY do 48kHz, so everything else gets resampled.  

 

Having said all that, I have several, and they sound completely fine to my ears.  One is the audio hub of my bedroom system.

I was AirPlaying Hi-Res from iPhone to Apple TV last night and while I doubt it's full resolution, I'm almost certain it still sounded better/fuller than CD-quality. So something's going on there (I think).

AirPlay downsamples anything higher to 16/44.1
