It’s well known that airplay 1 only supports 16bit/44khz, but I could not find any information about the airplay 2. Does it support 24bit/192khz? Does it support flac? Thanks

There is (or was) a way to sneak dts encoded autio (so more channels, not higher resolution) because it is/was bit perfect at 44.1Khz 16bits. Newer apple TVs insisted on trans-coding everything to 48Khz, so broke dts encoded 44.1 content. I haven't kept track of recent hardware, still having some working airport stations with optical outs, to deliver dts 5.1 streams, from itunes, to dts decoders.
