Does an ALAC HD file get downgraded when sent to ATV via Airplay?

I've purchased some ALAC HD files (24 bit/96khz) and want to stream them to my Apple TV from my Mac via Airplay (to output through sound system) without losing the quality.

  • Yes it will as Apple TV limit at 48khz. But if you plug it to a upsampling DAC it could sound pretty good, not audiophile tough.
