New Apple TV

The internet is full of buzz about the new ATV, which apparently will still cost $100 and will now show movies in 1080p, but I can't find any mention about whether it will play music files at anything above 16 bit. Does anyone know?
I sure hope it works better than the 3 I currently have, I would love to take them out back to put them(and me) out of their misery....
What problems are you having.
