Im currently running a software squeezebox on rPi hooked to a Audiolab MDAC into a Bryston 3bst.
ive ripped about 1000cds to alac but more and more i find i use Apple Music which squeeze doesnt support save via airplay which can be spotty and no shared queue for my wife to add things. Afaik AM is only supported by Sonos.
im intrigued by the new Amp for the increase in power and airplay 2 funtionality plus just getting me into the Sonos system. ill only ever use it in 2 channel mode.
That said i wonder if i could just buy the connect and run it into my existing dac via optical or coax?
im not sure if the amp would be an upgrade compared to the bryston or how the preamp/dac works in it vs the mdac.
