256Kbps being worked on? Seriously? This is 2018 and 320Kbps has been available on other platforms for over a decade. 320Kbps should be a minimum with lossless formats being worked on. :D

HE-AAC is horrible as any bitrate higher than 64 kbps there is no difference.  Switch to LC-AAC 256kbps or higher.

Hey all,

Just wanted to circle back here! We just provided an update regarding some of the feedback requests we expect to land in the next few months.

It would be huge for the community to at least clarify if lossless is being discussed in the development pipeline. 

I'm willing to be patient because I like the integration across products, but if there is no light at the end of the tunnel it's not worth sacrificing the audio quality compared to Amazon Ultra HD-- saying that as a long time subscriber to GPM.
