Apple Airport Express to DAC
Might I suggest replacing the airport express with something that can properly output a digital singal then? Seeking a dac that can cope with a poor implementation of spdif doesn't seem to make sense. A gen 2/3 Apple TV has no such issue and can b... 
Apple Airport Express to DAC
Any DAC that can support a 16 bit 48khz digital stream will work with the AE.  
Is this MQA news a big deal?
MQA is as controversial as religion at this point. I like it having it, but would stop short of calling it must have. At the very least there are stories like this to its credit;http://https//www.stereophile.com/content/recording-april-2018-fairyt...

Mcintosh MC7100 opinion
Reselling a 7100 would be an easy task if it didn’t work out, but I tend to agree with others that there must be something else going on here.  
Amp recommendation for KEF LS50
If you are interested in maximizing performance you may want to consider selling your ls50s and getting into a pair of ls50 wireless. Darko did a test and had to go way up market when pairing electronics with the passive ls50 to get them to outper... 
Why does my system now have shrill top end.
