Audio Streamer Choice


Hello,
I am currently using MacBook Pro (2009)'s USB 2.0 to Esoteric D/A 07 to stream audio. However Esoteric's max USB input is 24/96 and I want to upgrade it to 24/192. The only way to do this is changing Macbook to a new streamer. I consider to buy Cambridge Audio CXN (V2) Series 1, but I am not sure if I can bypass the DAC ability and just use this device to stream audio directly. If you have any suggestion I will appreciate !
Thank you.

The Cambridge CXN has coax and optical digital outputs so, yes, you can bypass the internal DAC of the CXN by connecting one of those outputs to the corresponding digital input on the Esoteric DAC.
