I currently am running an Oppo 103 into an old school 2 channel audio only system with separate preamp and amp. I realized a bit late that the 103 doesn't take push USB, so I only use it for physical discs or to stream media using foobar or the Ipad app.
However, i would also like to listen to Spotify as I have a premium account. I don't consider Spotify sound to be high quality so I just want a basic way to do this.
I've tried using a cable from ipad to the preamp but the output is low and overall the hassle factor seems too great. What's the cheapest basic way to do this?
Apple Express Plus optical cable plus a DAC with rca cables to my preamp? If so, which DAC? I don't want to spend a lot as I save my big money for my vinyl.
Thanks for any suggestions.
