In my bedroom I have my iMac, an A/V receiver, television and Apple TV. I sometimes ‘broadcast’ my music collection via Airplay to my Apple TV, which plays through my A/V receiver.
When using iTunes, Airplay and the Apple TV in this manner where does the Digital/Analogue conversion take place? In my iMac or in the Apple TV?
Or am I missing some fundamental understanding of how this all works?
If it is within the Apple TV, how good of a DAC is it for music? Is it as good as..say…a Schiit Modi 2 (about the same price as the last gen Apple TV)?
