    I don't think that the music would benefit from having a DAC after it being sent over the air via airplay.

    It would, the AirPort Express DAC is dreadful.

    When you say you couldn't get the music to send via Airplay, do you mean just by playing out of different speakers/an Airport in iTunes?

    I wouldn't touch Airfoil with a long pole in terms of sound quality. It messes with the data, or at least seems to...
