Play 5 and S2 software question

Hey. Hope you’re all well. The big software update is arriving next month and I’ve read about it bringing higher quality sound to most of its speakers and I’m just wondering if my Play 5 will be able to play songs at a higher rate when the software is out? I have Amazon Music HD that can play up to 24bit music and it currently can’t play on my Play 5. I know the Play 5 hasn’t as much memory as newer products and that’s why it’s being updated to a new version. Thanks

Yes, since you have a gen2 Play:5, it is compatible with S2, the new software version.

If that will really result in an ability to play higher Bitrate Material only Sonos knows since nothing has been published.
