    Hi guys I am newb here. I just ordered audioengine a5+, d1, and airport express for airplay setup. Is it possible to send airplay musics from airport express to d1 dac? And plus do I have to get additional cable for this setup?
    Thanks guys!

    The D1 is for connecting to the computer. You can use a 3.5mm cable to connect the airport express to the A5 speakers.

    The Airport Express has an analog output, you would not need a DAC.

    But if you want the Airport also has an optical out in the same jack. It is a combo 3.2mm and optical output. I don't see the point however because there is a analog converter inside the AE.

    All you need is a stereo splitter cable with a 3.2mm TRS stereo on one and two RCA on the other end.
