    HDMI streaming sticks as audio streamers or 44.1 to 48 kHz upsampling quality

    The most budget audio streamer option is an HDMI streaming stick. The cheapest of them fluctuates around $30. However, there is a problem. All known HDMI sticks upsample everything to 48kHz.

    Chromecast alternative or similar for HD audio

    I am currently using Chromecast ultra to cast music from Spotify and SqueezeServer. Is there an alternative to Chromecast ultra that can handle HD audio (24bit 96khz and above) Let’s leave RPI options alone since it’s absolutely flaky. Any options?

    Media Server with iOS/Android remote that can cast to Chromecast without transcoding

    Is there a media server that can serve FLAC (24bit 96khz max resolution) to a Chromecast without transcoding. I have tried PLEX and it transcodes audio to mp3 or m4a. There should be a remote to browse the media on a phone/ipad and should be able to cast to Chromecast.

    I just became aware of this today, although it's been in development since January '20. While it is beta status software, it does work, and playback can still be controlled with the MusicBee Remote app. By the way, it will connect to a Chromecast Video dongle just fine and display the...

    I tell you... a day does not go by where I find something done so incompetently. Today is no different. Went to buy a Google Chromecast to remove Youtube sound/videos to my audio/video system. Do a lot of previewing that way and thought would be good to see/hear them on the "big system." Go...
