I listen to WAV on my computer (Schiit Modi/Magni to Alpha Dogs) and CBR 320 MP3 on my iPod.
As to respond to original post.
If your buying HD tracks try downloading a FLAC player from the Apple App Store. The best one I tried is called AmpliFlac and costs $9. There are also a bunch that are free. VLC is free. I also use FLAC Player by Khoa Tran Anh but the files are out of order and you gets unwanted adds showing up at the bottom of your screen. Lol
Anyway Apple DACs max out at 48 kHz still you can mix your iTunes library with your iDevice FLAC library and listen to both. I find even 24 / 96 HD tracks sound better than any files out of my Touch Gen 5, especially with AmpliFlac. Cheers.
