It's called Bitperfect (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bitperfect/id455545700?mt=12).

I played around with some of the betas and it seems quite good in both function and some improved sound quality over iTunes native playback. Seems like a bargain relative to the price of some of the competition (Pure Music and Amarra) if all you're after is on the fly sample rate switching in the background, native flac support and some improved SQ without leaving the iTunes interface. Oh, and the thread (http://www.head-fi.org/t/553416/bitperfect-was-audirvana-alternatives/285) on its development where I discovered it.

Thanks for the heads up - I'll have to check that out.

You might like also to look at Decibel; good review in Stereophile and again much cheaper than Pure Music or Amarra:
