Stream Qobuz on Oppo BDP105
@simao......So a "Lightning-to-HDMI" adapter with Qobuz app on my iPhone will work? Would a "Lightning-to-USB" adapter work connected to the front USB 2.0 input connector? Would one be better quality with audio?

Does Chromecast support 24-bit/192kHz streaming? I love my Oppo 105 with the Modwright tube modifications, so I'd rather keep it. I don't need a streamer that has its own DAC or storage, but I guess I could buy a Bluesound Node and bypass its inte...
