So what's the problem?
That's exactly what i said. For digital it'll display 96/24 when it detects it's being sent that.
On analog, it displays it because, (in my opinion) that's the best audio quality it can take.
So what are you fussing about digital decoding, and analog?

I never was.
And the 96khz and the 24bit does NOT apply to digital ONLY.
They go both ways.
CD quality is 44khz 16bit.
So you would SEE how i'm not applying digital to analog.
As it applies to analog as well.
CD quality can also be 96khz and 24bit if it's recorded in high definition.
So what's your problem here?
It JUST says that on the screen because the system can output 96/24.
So i really dont get what you're asking.

I'm asking: "Why am I getting a digital message during an analogue input mode? I am not using the digital inputs on my Z-5400, I am using the 6 channels of discrete analogue. So far as the Z-5400 is concerned, when it is playing 6 Channel Direct it never sees the digital 96/24 output - the computer is doing the DA conversion, not the Z-5400.
Take a step back and consider what I'm saying carefully. Let us say I turned those sockets into the 3 separate stereo channels. Do you think they could accept a 96/24 digital input? No, of course not. And the same is true if you combine those three stereo inputs to drive the 6 channels (5.1) of analogue input from the computer.

I'm not going to waste any more time explaining how you think that 96/24 is only digital.
And yes, i understand CD is digital, but when it's decoded by a CD reader, and outputs the speakers, it's analog isnt it?
I have a program.
It's called Reason.
It's a music prodiction program.
There are options for the audio.
Now, my sound card supports the ASIO driver which is 96/24.
I USE analog ALL the time (except movies). Games, music, videos you name it.
I go into reason, i play the demo song that's loaded for me.
I then go and set the quality of the audio.
Whether it's 22,44,48,96,or 192.
And i can CLEARLY tell you that the LOWER i GO.
The worst sounding it is.
As i understand it's digitally processed.
But that's sound quality for you.
I SET the quality to 196khz.
You know what i hear?
I hear static.
As clearly, the system stated 96/24.
Thus the system supports 96/24.
Hence it will play up to that.
You can CLEARLY, i mean CLEARLY when i say clearly, HEAR the difference between 22khz, AND 96khz.
If you cant, then i cant help you there.
The bit rate i believe defines how good the quality is.
That's it. I'm not explaining it to you any further.
As you say it's analog, and it CANNOT detect it, you are correct.
In my opinion, it's placed there to let you know that it can output to 96/24.
