    Instead of using Spotify on your iPad, may I suggest you use the Spotify WEB player on your computer via the Google Chrome browser on your computer. This works for me on my Apple iMac

    Instead of using Spotify on your iPad, may I suggest you use the Spotify WEB player on Google Chrome on your computer to circumvent the restriction of having a Spotify Premium account.

    Am I correct in saying that audio quality-wise the digital optical lead is the best, followed by RCA and last ia the free one you get with it?
    Thanks

    Depends if the DAC you are plugging the optical lead into is better quality than the DAC you are bypassing in the CCA.

    Could anyone confirm how the CCA would compare to the Arcam Miniblink? Presumably the DAC is superior in the Arcam but I'm still unconvinced by Bluetooth even if it is aptx.

    It's the best musical bargain ever imo, if you already have the stuff to use it with though.

    Not sure if this will help but there is a setting in the chromecast audio full or high dynamic range make sure this box is ticked as when I found about it it made a massive difference.
