Streaming Apple Music lossless audio via Soundtouch speakers over airplay

Hi, I have two Soundtouch 30 and two Soundtouch 10 speakers. I stream music to these speakers via Airplay from Apple Music on my Mac. I wanted to confirm directly from Bose whether I can play lossless audio (ALAC up to 24-bit/48 kHz) via this method. There’s one website that says it can but I’m not sure if that website is reliable.


From a discussion with Apple Support, I can confirm that I CANNOT stream High Res Lossless (ALAC up to 24-bit/192 kHz) via Airplay from but they said that I can stream lossless (ALAC up to 24-bit/48 kHz) via Airplay but is also dependent on the speaker so I was advised by Apple to contact you (Bose) directly.


I would appreciate your advise as soon as possible. Thank you.
