    I don't think any of that is your biggest concern when you are using Spotify as a lossy source to be honest. That is going to have more to do with your sound quality than your output device IMO.

    Unless I'm reading it incorrectly, why don't you try this? Your weakest links are the analog output of your NUC, and Spotify's own resolution limitations. Give TIDAL's free trial a go and download the app to your NUC. Ensure the output resolution is set to "Hi-Fi". Connect the NUC via USB to your Topping DAC. This should yield you the best sound quality so far from the things you've tried IMO.

    Hey guys, this was a planned change, but for those members that are heavily involved in the AU forums as well there is a workaround. Just drop me a PM please if you haven't already.

    I always look forward to catching up with Kostas. It's funny he's from Melbourne (like me) and spends half the year here, yet I only ever see him around the world at shows on the other side of the globe. A humble fellow with a serious eye for design. His designs today are cutting edge.
