    I’m basically asking “hey what’s the least worst compromise that works for everybody?” A network player is not an option as all my gear is in a finished loft and the internet was installed in the basement. Previous attempts with a Chrome Cast Audio I’ve had since my last place we’re hit or miss. The Audioengine B1 looks pretty good. I’ve had the D1 USB DAC since launch and it’s been a good device. But the B1 is $189.

    What else is out there?

    I have BT with aptx on a couple of devices, a tpa3116 chip amp from Grace Digital and an Arcam irdac-ii dac/hp amp. My phone and tablet support aptX.

    I don't use it. in both cases, I find that a minijack works as well as BT works at its best, and that BT often falls back to non-aptX communication.

    I knew going into the irdac that BT would be at most a curiosity. I was disappointed with the TPA amp but now use an old WD TV Live Plus as a upnp renderer to feed the chip amp over the minijack.

    I do have network cable run throughout the house, though.

    I'm pretty satisfied with my SMSL Sanskrit Pro-B.
