I find myself using Tidal more and more. As a newcomer to Naim (Uniti Nova) I seem to have a multitude of options at my immediate disposal to play music:
- Natively on the Naim app
- From iOS devices using AirPlay 2
- From iOS devices using Chromecast
- From my old Sonos Connect ZP90 (leftover from my former system)
I’ve briefly and unscientifically experimented with them, and they seem equally reliable and I can’t really discern any difference in terms of enjoyability.
So, I’m curious if there’s any known technical limitation with either method that should discount one over the other.
My previous experience with AirPlay (v1) and Chromecast have been extremely disappointing (on Apple and Google hardware respectively) due to frequent dropouts. But both seem solid on the Naim with my current wifi setup.
I’m curious what is considered “best” either anecdotally or technically.
