It does not advertise itself as 24 bits, at least in UPnP mode. You can
try to change "PCM format" to "wav" in the plugin setings, for *that*
player but wav comes with potentially a lot of other issues when used in
streaming mode (which is sort of necessary here). If you really want HR,
you'd need that, but otherwise, I'd recommend moving to AirPlay mode and
using my AirPlay bridge. Yes, it's limited to 16/44.1 which will not
make a real difference (don't want to start a flame war here, just my
opinion) and will work much more easily and give you replaygain, sync,
fade modes etc.
