Hi Res Audio from Amazon and Tidal. How to output PCM high resolution from Roku Ultra?

Hi-Res Audio from Amazon and Tidal. How to output PCM high resolution from Roku Ultra? With Amazon and Tidal now outputting high resolution music, can we get this passed through Roku and not lowered down in resolution? 

Is there plans for a new audio friendly Roku?

Thanks

Scott

Re: Hi Res Audio from Amazon and Tidal. How to output PCM high resolution from Roku Ultra?

So far Roku has made no indication that they plan on offering players with higher-end functions. They have been asked for years to support lossless audio bitstreaming, but nothing has happened. They have a support page here that offers information about playing local media, but they say nothing about how high resolution audio is handled. As you note it's probably being down-converted to PCM, but at what resolution I have no idea.
