Hi all, we are an Apple product family (our MacBook Pros are vital to our work) so when it came time to catalog and stream my music, the easy route for me was Apple. All my CDs are ripped to ALAC on an external 1Tb drive and I stream via Airplay to a Airport Express connected via an optical cable to a Benchmark DAC1 USB. The Benchmark is connected to a vintage integrated amp (100 wpc) and it drives a 2.1 speaker system. (The Benchmark also handles a digital coax Redbook CD feed from my SACD player.) I realize the highest streaming rate I am going to get with this set-up is 16bit/44.1kHz. We also have a subscription with Apple Music, which is fine at low/non-critical listening levels. I'm in the middle of a trial subscription with Tidal Masters and I have really enjoyed listening to high-resolution audio through my headphones. But if I want to run Tidal to my stereo system it appears the only way would be through a hardwire connection via a USB cable to the Benchmark DAC, is that right? I would love the convenience of streaming the Tidal high-res feed but don't see how that would be possible with my MBP. I have searched for Tidal/Apple discussions on AK for but am still not clear about options. I am hoping more knowledgeable readers can point me to the answers and/or previous threads. Thanks in advance!
