Thinking of pulling the trigger on the ndx2 to feed my SN2 (will be replacing my Cambridge Audio 851N streamer)
Couple of questions though: can the ndx2 perform the first unfold of MQA?
And if so, can I do this straight from streaming from my iPhone (now that the iPhone supports MQA) or do I have to plug my laptop into the USB port.
Also I subscribe to Neil Young’s archives and it streams high res albums… can’t tell if it uses mqa or something else but from I understand Airplay will just knock it down to cd quality… so can I use the ndx2’s USB port to connect my (oldish) Mac book pro?
Lastly I’m not wedded to the idea that I need a screen (but nice to have) so naturally I’m wondering if the nd5 xs2 could get me where I want to be with SQ… would be curious to know opinions of folks that have compared both.
