Bit of advice on getting signal to amp.

13 posts in this topic

Goodaye all

 

Need some help and advice on getting  a audio signal from my PC to my amp on a secondary system.

 

Sitting next to the amp is a network hub so l thought a digital device but what?

Set up the system roughly using a Chromecast it was ok but there some network issues over the wireless.

 

The sound was amazing from the little Sansui AU101 and the old Linear Design speakers that l had inherited.

When the wife starts screaming to turn it down you know its right. :thumb:

But l digress.

You need a DAC with an Ethernet input connection and stereo analogue output. Something like the Focusrite RedNet AM2

This is a professional device costing about USD400 but hopefully someone makes a more cost effective domestic alternative.

I get the impression the computer is in a separate location. 

 

In which case, you could invest in any number of brands' wireless access points;

 

Yamaha WX-C50

Sonos Connect

Heos Link

Auralic Aries Mini

Bluesound Node 2

 

There are a large list of products that will do it.

Yes the computer is 15m away.

@sloper  asked about connecting to a network hub, and that he had issues when using wireless.

All the devices mentioned have ethernet connectivity and don't need to be run wirelessly.@sloper

Looking around a Chromecast is the most cost effective, l suppose l could setup a wireless channel just for my own  use.:thumb:

You could. Also give it preference on the router.
Chrome cast apparently not that good with audio per reviewers.

If you want ultimate reliability and easy to use app to control it all, I'd suggest the Sonos connect into your dac then the Sansui.
