Hi all, Looking closely at DAC+ for MQA capability (also phono). So far I have relied on Pre/proc to handle DNLA streaming from music server for HIres play (lan/Serviio on Windows) Looking to Tidal for HIres library top sample prior to HDTrack purchases. Relative novice to internet streaming. New Marantz AV7704 with Heos , also Roon Ready Oppo UDP203 (no MQA support ion Oppo).
Not sure how to loop in DAC+, do I need a dedicated streamer/player feeding bits to the DAC+ I’m figuring the DAC+ cannot stream on its own. Tried a BlueOS node2 for a while but analogue to my proc was not as good as I like also if it feeds a digital stream to a dac (7704 internal dac) the target dac must decode MQA which the 7704 does not.
A close competitor to the DAC+ would be the Lumin D2 which I think may stream natively
Reasonably tech savvy gear head here, just newish to the streaming landscape.
Also is there an android control app for DAC+
