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.

A great amp with some notable musical skills, but it loses a star compared with its better-performing, better-specified rivals
Another admirable and attractive soundbar from LG, pipped to that fifth star by fierce competition
The large screen and punchy picture are highly attractive for this price, but you’ll have to forego the smart features and Full HD resolution
