If you want to play 24-bit/192kHz high-res audio on your iPad or iPhone, and stream it across you network, the NePlayer app could be the answer.

Released in Japan earlier in the year, the NePlayer app is now available around the world for iPhone and iPad via the Apple App Store.

As well as reaching new territories, and coming in English and Chinese versions, NePlayer also supports wireless connection to any DLNA-connected devices on your network. 

This means that, as well as playing high-res audio on your Apple phone or tablet, you can connect to a NAS or network music player to stream high-res tunes.

The iPhone can't play high-res audio in its native app, but there have been a few workarounds. The Onkyo HF Player app was the first we came across and now NePlayer is proposing something similar, with some added wireless connectivity.

There does seem to be an Android version, too, though this isn't available in English as yet.

I've been using Vox for iOS and OS X.
They have a cloud service that allows you to upload your entire collection and stream and/or download tracks to OS X and iOS. It's pretty great.
