Description Of Issue

Just an observation - when listening to lossy files (mp3, aac) in the signal path, Roon seems to identify these files as 24bit when I know they’re 16bit. In fact, can you even have 24bit lossy files?

I’ve noticed the same on some aac radio streams too.

Thanks @ged_hickman1 - I did a quick search but didn’t see this post.

I only know as I asked the same question.
