Hi
I tried the last released version.
I'm really happy to see foobar on my iPhone.
I have a question regarding the resampler.
I see that I can go up to 96khz.
How does the iPhone dac handle this kind of sampling rate?
Does it resample to 48khz or does the iPhone dac able to play at 96khz?
If it does resample to 48khz, what is the benefits to propose to resample higher than the dac? Is it only relevant for an external dac?
Thank you for your answer.

The internal DAC only supports up to 16/48, but if you connect a USB DAC using the USB Camera Connection Kit, you can output 24/96, or possibly higher. Of course, at the moment, it only outputs 16 bit, but an option may be added soonish.
