Apple Music

If you don’t know yet Apple Music is now lossless, then you must be living under a rock 😂

Question is, has anyone here figured out how to stream Apple Lossless in a proper audio system?

I am getting a lightning to USB adapter to connect my iPhone to my USB DAC to try. As far as I know, this is the only way to stream lossless from Apple Music. Am I missing anything?

When streaming Apple Music lossless music, you can get up to 25-bit 48kHz quality; and for Hi-Res lossless music, you can get up to 24-bit 192kHz output. How can you have these high-resolution Apple Music songs offline?

Try AudFree Apple Music Downloader, which converts Apple music to lossless MP3/AAC/FLAC/WAV and retains the original quality data. This is a 100% clean and safe Apple music downloader. By using this program you can add lossless Apple music files to your DJ or burn them more freely to CD.

Update: connected my iPhone 12 via lightning to USB adapter to the USB port on my DAC (Esoteric N-01XD). First impressions on Apple Music: …. Crap! It sounds bad. Very flat, no dynamics, muted, squashed dynamics. Something is wrong.

I am comparing to current setup, Qobuz and Tidal streamed via Roon and Ethernet to my streaming DAC
Actually, no. Apple downsizes anything to 24/96, at most, despite what the DAC or adaptor is capable of. People need to read what Darko has found out about Apple's set up.

All the best,
You use this out of your lightning port to your DAC's USB cord: Apple Lightning to USB3 Camera Adapter

This will let you charge and listen to up to 24/192 at the same time (or above if your DAC will handle that).  It works on both iPhone and iPad but is big and clunky so best for non-mobile applications.
Oh… I have Qobuz. And Tidal. And Roon. I was just trying to try Apple Music. I am in wife’s family plan, along with our sons. So this is “free” for me 
Get the adapter that allows you to charge as you play — it supposedly sounds better and will avoid your phone dying while listening.  Also, I believe Apple limits the iPhone’s digital out to 24/96 if that matters.  I’d recommend switching to Qobuz. 
I was just going to link to Darko. He has the best take on it right now.
There's also this video he made earlier:

All the best,
