Well...if you tell me how you determine what the "best audio quality" might be...then others might be able to suggest something.

 

I find that audio perception and preferences is a very personal thing...it's not like there is a standard that fits everyone or every type of music.  Or if there is, I'm unaware of it.  I don't think players have much to do with audio quality...they transform digital code into sounds that we recognize and enjoy.  Ditto for codecs.

My guess is that your headphones and speakers...and you...have a lot more to do with audio quality...than codecs and such.  If you have quality headphones and speakers which result in pleasing sounds to your ears...that's about as good as it should get, IMO.

 

Of course you can use signal processors, tuners, equalizers and such...to modify/enhance the preferences which are inherent in you...but I'm not sure that's audio quality or just modifying our enjoyment alternatives (something we like to do).

 

Example:  I grew up listening to old scratched up records made of slate or vinyl...after that, listening to just about any system with good speakers and a music delivery system that is not marred by human handling...is a great improvement.  I'm quite satisified with .mp3 media sound...where others today believe that today's vinyl produces a "better" sound :).

 

Beauty does lie in the eyes of the beholder.  Find out what you like and...enjoy it...or do the reverse and find out what you don't like and look for alternatives.

I like foobar2000 http://www.foobar2000.org for the player and 24 bit 192 khz PCM as far as the music file. If the original music was well mastered from a good source on competent equipment, then everything should be fine.

My little home computer stereo consists of a homemade Windows 10 PC with a very specific PSU to filter out any voltage irregularities, and this system;

 

An Oppo USB DAC https://www.oppodigital.com/headphone-amplifier-ha-1/

 

My amplifier is a Marantz http://www.us.marantz.com/us/Products/Pages/ProductDetails.aspx?CatId=HiFiComponents&SubCatId=0&ProductId=PM7005 and my little desk top speakers are PSBs http://www.psbspeakers.com/products/bookshelf-speakers/Imagine-mini

 

I like the way that this little system sounds, and I have about 80,000 high resolution songs on my PC to listen to.

 

Music is fun.
