Hi all

I have been using for years now my albumplayer this way :

Data base (flac files only) on a internal HDD in my main PC (Windows). Albumplayer loaded on a Windows laptop or Windows tablet reading Flac files over a Wi-Fi network (n) sending audio output over Wi-Fi (g) to a wireless audio device (Azurewave GA200) connected to my hi-fi preamp (optical link)

I’m improving this system in 2 ways at this time :
    My Flac files are now on a Synology NAS (Ethernet 1000 to my router)
    I’d like to change the wireless audio device (a little bit old and limited to 16bit/44khz) for playing albumplayer from my Windows tablet (Surface pro) over Wi-Fi, but with better sampling capabilities than today (24 bits, 96, 192 khz if possible)

What kind (make, model) of wireless audio device (Windows 8 compatible) would you recommend according to your experience?

Many thanks in advance

JP from France

I don't have experience with wireless audio devices. Maybe other AlbumPlayer users have.

I use the Audioengine D2 wireless DAC. The transmitter connects to your Windows PC via USB and doesn't require a proprietary driver. The receiver can connect to your preamp using optical or analog connection. The transmitter and receiver connect wirelessly over their own network so they do not have to use your wi-fi, which is a nice feature.
