Apple TV, Airplay, Airport & DAC Help needed


Prominent Member
Hey All,

Just wondered if someone could give me a bit of guidance? :confused:

I am currently building a decent hi fi system and have settled on a Naim amp with a separate DAC.

My music collection is stored on my macbook pro (obviously via Itunes) and I would like to know if I can hook something like apple tv, airplay, airport express etc to play my music collection through the DAC to make it sound awesome!! :smashin:

Apologies if this is the wrong forum or a simple question but I am completely new to apple products like those mentioned above. :blush:

The other question I had (assuming the above is possible) do any of the devices work when the laptop is closed? Or do I need to operate everything using the macbook? :rolleyes:

In advance
