Default Amazon Ultra HD streaming

This from a recent article:

“Amazon Music HD offers customers more than 50 million lossless HD songs, with a bit depth of 16 bits and a sample rate of 44.1kHz (CD quality). In addition, customers can stream millions more songs in Ultra HD (better than CD quality), with a bit depth of 24 bits and a sample rate up to 192 kHz.”

Anyone have any idea if the Ultra HD format is just resampled from CD format?

I am currently building a small system for the office and was just pricing a new DAC either buy or build. The availability of a wide selection of 24bit/192Khz material will definitely impact my selection process …maybe not buy a Schiit Modi Multibit??

Doesn't seem fantastic.

This has much better performance and costs less:
