Hi, I am considering buying a Node 2i specifically to get the best sound quality from Tidal MQA streams. My current hifi consists of a nVidia Shield TV feeding a Benchmark DAC3 into dual mono power amps, speakers.
I want to replace the Shield with a Node 2i but I want to retain the Benchmark DAC.
Ideally (I think) I'd like to let the Bluesound do the MQA decoding and then output 24/96 digital PCM to the Benchmark for D-A conversion. Would that work?
Or would I be better taking analogue output from the Bluesound into the DAC3?
What do you recommend please?
