hi - this area seems full of variables i simply don't understand. i want to get 2 channel audio off my chromebook (have hdmi+usb out) to either an optical or coax digital input. (i have rejected wireless, and a wire is not an issue) a reccomendation of a cheap device (c.£20?) would be really helpful. the confusing bit is whether most devices are going to surround or 2.1 or something odd - just need 2 channel. its for general sound - spotify/AV thanks
Hi - i have quite a revealing hifi system NC400+Ellam flex 3W(diy). CD is my main source and will remain so for serious listening. Q; for A/V, convienence, and occasional exploratory listening from spotify; is the addition of bluetooth a disaster as far as sound quality is concerned, or given the source (chromebook utube spotify at el) will the gains made by connecting more directly be minimal? Q; regarding direct connection to dac from a chromebook or computer; my dac only has optical or coax spdif options. is there much quaility loss using a usb to optical convertor? i note there are also hdmi to audio coax devices readiliy available - does anyone have experience of the quality vs these two, or any other thoughts regarding a possible later more serious connection of computer to dac? ( am thinking of a chinese audioengine copy)
