Im running my apple tv into a rega brio and set of in wall focals. is there any point on adding a dac from apple tv into my rega direct. will it make a difference
Will it matter, probably not.......
We do so many shows in a row,
And these towns all look the same,
We just pass the time in our hotel room
And wander 'round backstage,
Till the lights come up, and we hear that crowd,
And we remember why we came.
Im thinking of the micromega mydac which i can pick up for a nice price. This is my only audio I have now ive down graded for the time being
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.

MAIN: Apple TV2, Mac Mini (controlled from various iThings using Remote), CA Azur 751BD & Panasonic P42V20B into audiolab M-DAC, feeding a Primare A34.2 class D power amp via XLRs, 2x 5m of Atlas Ascent 2 firing up Totem Arros. DALI Kubik Free in my kitchen
ON THE HOOF: iPhone 5S/Sennheiser MM450.
And, being pendantic, the Apple TV 1st generation!
right now im going from HDMI into my sony via rca to my rega, ya i know not to long ago i had proac d28's and pre power parasound system lol
so am I on the right track here guys will this dac make a difference when im steaming tunes from my imac
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.
im sure my sony tv in the Z series is okay but wouldnt be near as good as this micromega dac for streaming
