The Sabre 9018 DAC can play any format (MP3, AIFF, FLAC etc) from CD quality up to high resolution 96kHz/24bit files. It does not support 196k or 384kHz natively, nor does it play DSD files. Why. Most people does not have 192/384/DSD files. You do not benefit from a 384kHz capable DAC when playing CD quality (or high resolution 96kHz) files. If you need a 192kHz/384kHz/DSD DAC then we have other options for you. We have intentionally omitted this for all of our customers that don't play 384kHz/DSD so you can save and get a better sounding CD quality DAC.
