Flac Audio Resolution

Does anyone know the audio resolution the new 2020 Roku Ultra will pass through for PCM FLAC? The only specs on their website are for Dolby. 

Thanks

Re: Flac Audio Resolution

The Roku Ultra 2020 played my 24-bit 96Hz and 192Hz stereo music files. It also played my only 24-bit 96Hz 5.1 (6 channels) music file, but output was transcoded in stereo only.

This was played with the Roku connected first to Android TV, then from TV to Denon AVR via HDMI ARC, and it was the same when I then connected the Roku first directly to the Denon. The 5.1 flac still showed up as Stereo on the Denon. I used the Roku Media Player with USB drive connected and also streaming (DLNA) same file from my NAS.

Thank you for the reply.

Did your Denon AVR show the stereo files played at their native resolution or were they down sampled?

When set to HDMI audio passthrough on Roku, it stays at same resolution.
