Roku Ultra 4k Hi-Res 24/192 audio passthrough or playback ?
I have a Roku ultra box, connected to a NAS to stream video files. The Roku is connected to a Marantz SR7009 by HDMI. The NAS also contains hi-res 24/192 and 24/96 FLAC audio files. The Marantz can stream hi-res audio, but the streaming software interface is archaic and crashes frequently. The Roku interface is easier to use and reliable.
I searched the archives, and read conflicting answers. Some say yes, hi-res files can pass through intact, other say no, that hi-res files are downsampled to 16/44 or 16/48.
So which is it ? Can my Roku box pass through hi-res audio intact and without alteration or downsampling ?

My Roku Ultra (not the latest 2022 revision) will stream 24/96 intact but reverts to 16/48 on 24/192 files. The Roku is hooked via HDMI cable into my Denon AVR-X3500H receiver...I'm able to check the resolution of the Roku audio output at any time.
