This was a disappointing discovery! It was easy to assume that their top of the line AVR touted as being all sorts of musical would play anything! Especially since I just dropped $150 on HDtracks.com!!!
Upon further research it appears Yamaha's mid-range RX-A1020/30 will play 192hz FLAC's? If I want a Marantz to do that I have to step up to the AV7701? Ugh. No thanks.
And I just bought a Panny DMP-BDT220 because I thought I didn't need the 192/42 DAC's in the BDT500. Boy was I wrong!
Marantz, I want my cake and I want to eat it.
