Streaming apple lossless from PS3 media server

Hi, read from PS3 media server forum and people say it should stream apple lossless in CD quality, but I can still hear slightly differences. The apple lossless streaming is less smooth, less dynamic and more electronic than CD. Its not very obvious but noticeable on my Onkyo SR806 and KEF speakers, and bad enough for me to go back to CD.

I do not understand why this happen, but maybe there are still loss in the re-sampling/re-encoding process, or the PS3 simply handle streaming and CD differently.

Please share your opinions.

The PS3 upsamples CD audio where it does not apply the same treatment to streaming audio. Thank our friends at sony for that... the PS3 is a darn good redbook audio player. It has the potetial to be a killer streamer but dozens of pitfalls like this keep will keep it from being use seriously as a streamer by most folks... but no you are not crazy....
