So here's the deal. I'm going to have 2 system in my 2 channel room. Each one will be using my computer as a source. I plan on having each system setup as follows:
System 1: Computer -> Optical or Coaxial into my Integrated -> Polk RTA 11TL's
System 2: Computer -> Optical into my DacMagic -> Sunfire TGP-II -> Parasound HCA-750ii -> Infinity RS-II
So here is where my issue is. For now while both systems share the same rack, I can use the coaxial/optical out of the DacMagic directly into the integrated receiver. However I anticipate possibly locating the systems in 2 different places so I can run the RTA 11TL's and the Infinity's w/o having to move anything around.
So I am in need of something in the 300 dollar range to allow me to use my PC as the same source. I would prefer to not have to switch output devices on my computer, so if its possible to run the DacMagic via the Coaxial out, and then figure out a decent streaming solution to the other system that can do 16/44.1 and send it out via optical or coaxial into my integrated that would be preferable.
I am very interested in the Cambridge Audio NP30 as its got similar features to my DacMagic and a similar look. However its wireless and I may have dropouts as my Squeezebox does downstairs when streaming my high fidelity music. However the NP30 can do wireless N which my Squeezebox cant.
Anyway thoughts appreciated here.
