Default what about airport express + nanoDigi DSP crossover + ADCs

Well I was thinking about apple airport express to stream music in wifi from PC.
The airport express has a optical output that could be connected to the nanoDIGI 2x8 K used as crossover. Then connect each of the output of the crossover to an amplifier via ADCs

I have it via SPDIF from my soundcard to a miniDIGI, but I would expect that a miniStreamer (or USB Streamer) would be a better source.

Hi Henkjan

In what way might a miniStreamer or USB Streamer work better?

Something that miniDSP said?

USBStreamer won't work via i2s because it doesn't support slave mode on its output. All miniDSP i2s ports must act as master.

I'm currently using RaspyFi - Pi never sounded so good! (linux distribution for a raspberry) to wireless stream music to my usb (i2s) dac. Do do think it could stream to a mini dsp directly?
