Topic: Adding ethernet port to Adi2 pro
I am in the process of discovering and understanding all of this so please be kind!
I have an integrated amp with an ethernet port at the back. Therefore it can be connected to my internet box through an ethernet cable, and I can play music using upnp from my computer.
The thing is, the dac in my integrated amp is inferior to the one in my Adi2 pro, so I have slowly started using it as a dac instead, connected to my amp through RCA.
I am so happy with the RME. I can link all the devices I could link with the integrated, really. It has everything I need, EXCEPT for the UPNP connection.
I have seen people on this forum advising others to use the Raspberry pi.
What I am looking for is a device which can be connected to my internet box through ethernet (just like my amp), and then link it to my Adi2 pro through usb (so I can stream all the music stored in my computer with foobar for example).
The streamers I have found on the internet all seem to have an integrated dac, which I don't need.
I don't know if I am clear enough!
Thanks for your advice on possible devices and setups!
