Do you want the good news or the bad news?
We begin with the bad: quote weaker sales figures than the video-compatible counterpart interrupts Google's Chromecast Audio streamer.  Chromecast Audio was launched in 2015 to become the most affordable music stream this site of a Raspberry Pi. It was even made possible for Roon to be the cheapest Roon endpoint available last year.
The sound quality of Chromecast's internal DAC is exactly what we can expect from a US $ 35 device – nothing special – but for a better-sounding Chromecast experience, we press the 3.5mm mini-TOSLINK digital pedestal output for connection to an external DAC. It's still not the best digital streamer available – Gavle's play remains MIA for Chromecasts streams – a no-problem for Soundcloud fans like yours really – but you would need a pretty decent hi-rig to reveal its audible errors . Only the ticket for entry-level systems such as KEF's LSX.
The good news is that Google runs remaining stock on Chromecast Audio for a crazy cheap US $ 15. Run …
Goodbye Chromecast Audio. We hardly knew.
