Does Play use setting in Audio Midi setup?

I use a Benchmark DAC-1 with a Mac Mini. The Benchmark is capable of decoding 24/96 signal. I need to manually set the output format in Audio Midi Setup to 24bit 96Khz in order to play 24/96 hi res tracks from iTunes otherwise, hi res tracks will be down converted. Do I need to do the same for Play?

Re: Difference in AIFF encoders

Thanks for the answer. The AIFF encoder from libsndfile has a lot more choices in the setting, most of them I have never heard of like U-Law, A-Law, IMA ADPCM, GSM 6.1, etc... How do I determine which one to use?

Difference in AIFF encoders

I am converting some FLAC to AIFF and find that there are two AIFF encoders: AIFF (Linear PCM) and AIFF (APPLE/SGI). What are the differences?

Thanks for all the helps in advanced.
