Streaming Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs) are devices that convert audio sources such as Apple TV into an analog signal that can be put into a standard amplifier or all-in-one speaker. They are simple plug-and-play receivers that can be easily connected to a spare phono or 3.5mm input.
If you’re thinking of getting one, below are the best ones available in the market today:
· Yamaha WXAD – Supports hi-res audio and is compatible with every streaming services, including Spotify, Qobuz and Apple AirPlay. It is very easy to set-up, offers superb sound, and supports 192kHz 24-bit resolution.

You can get five of these for the price of one Sonos Play 1 speaker, allowing you to create your very own multi-room system. It is specifically designed for people who are thinking about upgrading their Bluetooth speakers.
· Arcam rDAC – Gives noticeable boost to sound quality and connectivity is rock solid via either Ethernet or WiFi. It is also affordable and is DTS Play-Fi compatible.
