I’ve been using a Squeezebox 2 with an AudioEngine A5 (circa 2010) for my garage system. The Squeezebox stopped working a few weeks ago after 15 years and I’m looking for a low cost endpoint/DAC to replace it. The AudioEngine only has a 3.5mm jack for audio input so I just need RCA output on the device. It needs to be wireless as I don’t have any Ethernet in the garage.
Low cost is different for some but looking to spend less than $500. Any suggestions?
Me too - had a couple of family’s old iPhone 6’s sitting around. With a $11 “camera usb adaptor” (for an external DAC, but a 3.5mm analog output might be just fine for the garage ) and Roon app beats my Auralic Aries Mini hands down, sound quality wise.
