RE: up to 192kbps on Marantz SA8005!

"AAC
(.m4a)
Sampling frequency : 32 / 44.1 / 48 kHz
Bit rate : 64 kbps to 192 kbps

Why only up to 192 kbps on a $1,199.00 machine?"

As the machine offers >320KS/s for other formats it cannot be a limitation in the processing ability of the DAC itself.

My guess is that , aside from the possibility of a misprint, the answer may lie in the history of the AAC codec. it may well be that when the SA8005 was designed and built the AAC protocol was limited to a maximum of 192KS/s.
