What’s the highest resolution file a 272 can play?
Have you tried it and if so how did it sound?

It can play up to 24/192 (as well as DSD 64) and both of those can sound very nice. So much depends on the mastering that I wouldn’t say the format was always very important, to my ears 16/44 can sound great.

Naim say in the specification that it will stream up 24bit/192KHz. I have a few albums at this resolution. It sounds fine but imho it’s quite hard to detect a difference from 24bit/96kHz which also takes up less space, so personally if I’m buying a HD download, it’s 24bit/192kHz I go for.

Thanks - where do you buy hi res files from?
