I know that all Sonos products don't have this feature in their streaming capability but I thought that maybe because the Play:5 has a headphone Jack that it doesn't need to do all the high-res digital to analog conversion as that's all done by the source already...
Would someone be able to confirm this? Because if so - I may go get a Play:5.

Sonos won't I believe, produce anything better than CD quality. There are many who believe that the claimed advantages of hires are bunk even on a £10,000 system. You are worrying about something you cannot possibly hear a difference in. Forget the line in. Downsample hires files to 16-bit FLAC and stream them to the P:5 wirelessly.
