If you only need internet radio then a simple fix is an Apple TV which has internet radio built in, is wireless, and can be controlled by an iPhone. The big plus with one is you can then AirPlay either from your computer or, again, an iDevice which then allows you to stream any music service from whatever you are using.
The Apple TV has an optical digital/analog out which you can use to hook up to your dac.
Oh, and it's $100.
My cd playback is through a modded Jolida JD100 with Mullard tubes. I'm happy with this player but did acquire an external DAC a few years ago for a secondary system that I have since disbanded.
The AUNE DAC/Headphone amp shipped direct from China for about $175. The DAC performs very respectably, especially considering the cost. It does have a COAX input so I should be all set.
I appreciate the feedback and will likely purchase the Duet very soon.
I use a Logitech Touch, and run the coaxial SPDIF output into my Meridian G68 and the sound quality is really good, (much better than I expected). The Touch connects to the WWW via Wi-Fi through an AT&T U-Verse high speed gateway.
I recently acquired a DaySequerra MultiMerge 1 which goes between the Touch and the Meridian G68 to decode DTS Neural webcasts. It connects to the Touch via its coaxial SPDIF output, and to the Meridian via the 3 MHR links. The number of 5.1 DTS Neural encoded programs, particularly APM-sourced classical programs, is surprising, and provides really great sound - much better than stereo.
