Digital path through my setup 2018-02-19 15:43:50 Trying to understand the paths the ones and zeros take though my setup.I have a Chromecast Audio (CCA) toslink to my DacMagic DAC. A netgear hub is connected to my router. From the hub, Cat5 ethernet runs to the CCA and a TP_Link 5G WAP.My Galaxy phone wifi's to the WAP. On the phone are my FLAC files (also some MP3); I play these files on a Poweramp app. I also play music from a Spotify app, a BBC iplayer app, various other internet radio apps, Youtube and the Chrome browser.Firstly the FLAC files. They must be decompressed then put through the DAC to turn them into audio. Does the decompression take place on my phone or on the DAC? I am assuming on the phone, in Poweramp, as I need a player that understands FLAC.After the files leave my phone, compressed or uncompressed, they goto the WAP then hub then CCA.As far as the other apps are concerned all get their ones and zeros from the internet. Do they come to my phone, via the WAP then back to the WAP then hub then CCA. I assume this route as I use my phone to make adjustments to the sound e.g. volume. How much of the above have I got wrong?
