That will be great! But so far there are almost no records on that format. Hope Larry can transform his insights when working on the driver to get the hardware implementation done in a way that it is very good supported! For me the real support for this could even be released 2015 by software update, because there is not really any stuff to play so far. Comparing some plots on different forums it seems like dsd128 is already pretty good if implemented right, but there it is great that it will have the possibility to play back even higher resolution. Man that means the pcb will now have to be made super good: matched impedance on related traces and things like this.
Meanwhile: I really hope they pick a digital-encoder with shielding (metal house around with separate pins for ground) for low emi and something around 24 steps. I read that around 24 steps is what a human in average can sense on a circle. Some of them have better bounce and some worse. Guess one has to test them all.
