Ok - I know that this subject has been covered in many ways in different posts on this forum, but as much as I search, I cannot find the answers that work for me. Let me give you some background to my system: I have an audio system in my office with my main computer, and I have a 3 TB music library, much of which is 24/96 quality files using an IMac and itunes. I use a SET amplifier connected to my computer via usb into a JKenny 24DAC, and I have an external hard drive using firewire to connect to the computer. Now, I have two other stereos in the house - one using a rehabbed Fisher 400 tube receiver and the other using a rehabbed Eico HF-81 tube amp. I am trying to get the music from my office to these systems. Right now, I am using Apple TV into DACs on both of my systems, and the result is pretty good, but from what I understand I am not getting the best quality possible - I use Air Foil rather than the Apple TV interface so I can utilize Amarra. I just got some MOCA receivers that will use FIOS internet to hard wire my Apple TVs, and this may be the best I am going to do - avoiding drop outs and using an IPAD to control songs. But...could I do all of that and get full quality 24 bit music? Solution 1 - Are there other streamers I can hard wire to my network and get better results than the Apple TV without spending a ton of money (also, I would like to continue using I-Tunes, since all of my music is already in ALAC, and I like Amarra). Solution 2 - I could use an old Mac Book to access home sharing and go out from my mac book (with Amarra on it) to the DAC in each system - if this can access 24 bit music, maybe this is easier and cheaper since I can just move my laptop from one system to the other? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
