    Hello Jeff,

    Airplay itself streams in lossless ALAC 16/44.1 even if you are playing a higher bitrate from your original source. This means if you are playing 24/96 audio from your Node 2i, Airplay will compress it to 16/44.1 before sending it over your network. Unfortunately this is a limitation of Airplay and not the Node 2i so there is no way for us to make any changes to avoid this compression in a future update.

    Regards,
    Wesley P.

    Thank you. That's what I was afraid of, although I couldn't be certain.
