Default Just started getting into high resolution audio

I recently moved into a new apartment which gave me the opportunity to use a spare bedroom as a den. That gave me the idea of also setting up a music server as long as the room will be for personal work and relaxation. In the course of my research, through natural progression of delving deeper, I discovered a better approach to music quality. Being 24/96 resolution and higher. It seems really cool since I've always loved music since I was barely able to walk.

So, I got to thinking more and it seems that I have been wasting the true potential of my Peachtree Nova that I purchased quite some time ago, ironically because one of the benefits was a USB input for computer audio. I had it hooked up as the main amplifier to drive the front speakers in my HT but not anymore. Now that I have my den, I can set up a music section as well as my computer.

I bought a new USB cable so it will be long enough and a pair of Sennheiser 560S headphones. The Peachtree has a great DAC and a tube in the headphone amp with a little window where you can see it glow Of course, there is a major blizzard today, so I hope I get the chance to listen. Weird, though, when I downloaded JRiver I already had Norah Jones in M4A 16/44 and 24/96. I noticed the 3K bitrate and was like what? That really surprised me. I must have downloaded it in the past when I had the same idea. Totally forgot about it. Oops. I downloaded Linda Ronstadt in 24/96 FLAC as a sample last weekend. I know, my music tastes have really changed as I get older. I saw Santana Abraxas at 24 bit/176 KHz wow! My next sample. I'm so happy I rediscovered my Peachtree.
