iPad to Apple TV to Amp
I'm after some advice about my audio setup. Currently I have my music on iPad, which connects via airplay to the ATV. The ATV is connected to the TV via HDMI and the TV's audio goes out to the amp via the analogue output.
The ATV doesn't have an analogue out....which is a bummer.
This setup means I have to have the TV on to play music, which isn't exaclty green. I also have to switch the TV on and change the source over when really I want to just pick up the ipad start the music playing.
My options seem to be:
- buy an amp with airplay (£££)
- buy an amp with an optical input (my Marantz PM6003 doesn't have one), so I can output to both the TV and the Amp directly.
- buy an airport express (bit reluctant to as have only just got the ATV which I was hoping to use for this purpose).
- invent an optical to analogue converter.
Any help greatfully received.
