  1. Hey All! I've been out of the loop for a few years now but finally getting some free time to enjoy movies/gaming/music again and want to improve on my current 2.1 audio setup to match a recent 4kTV upgrade. My current setup is: Visual Sony X85G 4k HDR TV Sources CA Azure 751BD Bluray/Cd Player Foxtel iQ4 PS4 Pro iPhone11pro Audio Rotel RA-06SE Integrated Stereo Amp B&W 685 Speaker Pair B&W PV1 Subwoofer A $50 Jaycar DAC that's handling the optical audio output from the TV to my stereo amp while i'm working out which path to go down... For simplification purposes I now basically stream everything movie/TV related via all the streaming services like Netflix, Disney+ etc or watch sport and premiere movies on Foxtel. And, if i'm being honest, I probably stream music way more just from my iPhone these days than a CD. I'm basically embracing super fast broadband, improved streaming quality and convenience. So anyways, i guess I'm looking for advice on where i can add/improve on my current setup to better suit my new way of consuming media. Now a couple of notes: I have no plans to update the speakers/sub anytime soon. I'm happy with them. I have no plans to grow my physical movie/music library. I'm embracing the ease of streaming services. My audio focus is more towards being immersed in a movie/tv show and less so on music, which is more for in the background when cooking, entertaining etc. My total upgrade budget is around $1k - $1.5k for new component/s... but certainly no more than $2k. A decent DAC to handle the PCM optical outs from my TV and Foxtel is an obvious solution, but: I want this upgrade to be a family friendly integration - not a symphony of remote shuffling. I'd like the option of a sub line out as well as stereo out. I'd like the option to stream music from my iPhone sometimes. A new integrated stereo amp is the other solution to handle the digital audio outputs from TV/Foxtel/ps4 and drive my speakers. Downside is i'm left with the RA-06SE which i do still like. But, if i can get an option that is better in audio quality as well as handling my digital inputs within my budget than it's A-ok. I want this upgrade to be a family friendly integration - not a symphony of remote shuffling. I'd like the option of a sub line out as well as stereo out. I'd like the option to stream music direct from my iPhone sometimes. So i guess the advice i need, taking into account how i watch/listen to stuff and what equipment i already have is: Recommendations/brands on where to start on the new DAC Path? Recommendations/brands on where to start on the new integrated stereo path? Recommendations on another path that I've missed? Thanks in advance. TCG
