Hi. Disappointed that Apple has yet to support 4K in their Apple TV, I've decided to use my internal smart TV functions for video steaming. But because I have all my music on a MAC (itunes) I want to use an apple product to be the source for my Emotiva DAC which then feeds Thiel Speakers though a pair of monoblock amps. I was thinking an airport express would do it. Here's, finally, is my question: In the past, I used an apple TV (gens 1,2, and 3) and my TV monitor to scroll through the albums/songs. I don't use the iMac because it's in a completely different part of the house. I suppose I would simply use itunes on the ipad. Are there any other options, down sides I should consider? I'm kind of worried the ipod adds some instability - what if it losses network, does music stop, Or someone opens another app - does that mess with things? Anyone have experienced using this interface after becoming familiar with apple TV?
