Comical. They reckon IP networking degrades the sound (not if wired, surely? ) but then run syncronous S/PDIF to the DAC without a wordclock input to minimise jitter.
Technicalities aside, yes there is a difference between the ALAC and WAV rips. Not only that, there are clear audible differences between AIFF and FLAC rips as well.
I have both the BDP1 and BDA. Comparing the rips on my PC yields the same audible differences. From my personal experience, this review is pretty true to the BDP1.
If what Tremon says is true, then I need to send both my BDP1 and PC back for repairs.
If anything, the ALAC file would theoretically be better, not worse, because the higher bandwidth requirement of uncompressed WAV makes the latter more susceptible to buffering issues.

The Note 8.0 might have been a great tablet once, but now it looks outclassed and outdated
A classic example of style over substance. Given tweaks to the sound it could be far better, but that’s not to be for now
All style and little substance – the Pill isn’t talented enough to compete with more accomplished class rivals
