Why aren't ethernet-enabled DACs more common?

Recommended Posts

The Airport Express can sit on your network and also function as a DAC. So you can have your audio files and renderer in one room (for example, on a desktop computer upstairs) and easily stream to a hifi system downstairs. Can you tell me about inexpensive alternatives to the Airport Express? i.e. DACs that can connect to your network (especially with a wired ethernet connection)? I'm especially interested to know about products that cost a few hundred dollars. I know there are many great solutions for more money.


One alternative is to get a $100 Apple TV and then any DAC you want. I'm interested in knowing about alternatives to Apple.


I know about Arcam's $700 airDAC.
