I have just gifted my original (2011?) UQ to my daughter. I didn’t realise she now does most of her music listening via Spotify (via her iPhone). I understand that if I do the upgrade to 24/192 that allows Spotify Connect to be installed but that’s in the £300-400 range from what I hear.
Is there a cheaper option available? Older iPhones IIRC had an analogue out socket; is it possible to get an analogue signal from a modern iPhone with Lightning connector? Or add a cheap DAC to achieve the same result?
I should add that I am very comforatble with streaming my own ripped CDs but have no experience with the streaming services including Spotify.
