I hope i'm posting in the right place (New to the forum) and that you guys can help me out. O yeah, besides please don't mind my English, I'm from the other side of the North Sea > The Netherlands, don't get confused by my name
To start with, this is my system:
Marantz pm 6005 / MA BX5 / Rega RP1 - Grado Blue / Technics cassette
Next to the records I'm listening, I'm also a huge spotify fan and listen a lot of its music on via my home system. Unfortunately the optical out of my MacBook Pro no longer works ($&@#%!) and I have to find a solution.
1) sell my MBP and find myself a new one, fixing is too expensive! (expensive option)
2) get myself an Airport Express and link it with an optical cable to the Marantz and stream Spotify from my MBP to the AE into the Marantz (quality loss? Or does this not matter with the 320kbps quality of spotify)
3) get a USB to optical converter (quality loss?)
What do you guys think?
