You'll need a DAC in any event, won't you, as the ATV only has digital out, and the Brio analogue in?  At one time I used a CYP £25 DAC (AU3) and the worked a treat.

Indeed! It's the Airport Express that has both analogue & digital outs.

OK - with you now. My panasonic plasma has a half way decent DAC feeding its analogue outputs so whether or not an external one will better it depends on how much you are willing to spend. You will need a DAC with one or more optical inputs such as the Beresford Bushmaster - I'd guess at a big upgrade to SQ.
