A new setup.
Plex server and player on OSX with Plex transcoding FLAC on the fly and casting to -->
CCAudio 3.5mm to RCA into a stereo amp -->
The amp then plays one channel of 2 only .
If I go to Chrome browser casting radio to the CCAudio I immediately get 2 channels.
Plex seems awesome and there is so much i don't know...
CCAudio was the cheapest DAC I could get PLUS it offered WiFi streaming to bring the 90s amp into the 21C... I can't go back to Mac laptop speakers now.
