NDS with CD555 PS - is it worth keeping

How are you integrating the NDS into your system?

So after doing more testing with my setup ->Roon (Squeezbox) → NDS (UPnP) → RCA → Platin Hub → WISA (wireless) → A10 Buchardt (active speakers) vs Roon → Platin Hub → A10, there seems to be no difference in sound quality and I think it’s because of the DA to AD to DA conversion. So now I want to connect the NDS directly to the A10s but am not sure how. The A10s take in XLR being active speakers. Any suggestions as to which pre-amp would pair nicely with the NDS? It might be a wild goose chase but I want to keep the Naim system as much as possible but I am not married to the idea of letting it go if I have to.

Well, it’s plugged into the Naim 552, powered by the 555PS, and I use the Naim 300DR for the speaker output from my AV receiver, using that receiver’s preamp outs. Is that what you wanted to know?
