Hi all!
First of, I'm new in the HIFI-world and I got myself a pair of Q-acoustics 2050i floorstanding speakers.
Now I still need to get an amp/reciever.

I like good sound, but also want something that's easy to use.
I mainly use Tidal on my phone.
Now I would like an amp I can connect wirelessly with from my phone and use Tidal to play my music.
What would give me the best sound quality?
By just connecting with bluetooth (APT-X)?
Or use my netwerk in some way, and maybe use Tidal connect?

Finally, do you have any recommendations for an amp? I like to stay below 500 euro/dollar.
If I were to go for tidal connect, should I get an amp with stream function built in, or would a separate streamer be better/cheaper?

Thanks!:)

Buy yourself a second hand Quad Vena, it's got a decent DAC onboard and then buy yourself a Wiim mini that will allow you to use Tidal connect. The Wiim costs approx £100. Job done.

I’d save up just a touch Longer and get yourself a blue sound power node 2i. It’s a little over budget but you’ll have a better time of it and will be worth the price, ultimately it will do everything you want and more.

Thanks for your answers!
I decided to go for a separate amplifier (CA AXR100) and streamer (Wiim).
But then I found a relatively cheap second-hand NAD C368 including a streaming module, so I went for that.
It also has a bit more power than the Quad vena and powernode 2i.
