I've had the Tidal trial and will shortly be making that a subscription (especially as the only decent record shop Head in Leamington closed yesterday *sad*) I'm pretty pleased with the sound from my iPhone to Chromecast but I'm wondering if anyone had tried iPhone via Bluetooth, there seems to be a lot of love for the Arcam MiniBlink.

Bluetooth would be a step backwards in quality and functionality.

Firstly, Bluetooth uses lossy compression, whereas the Chromecast using WiFi is capable of lossless/hi-res.

Secondly, Bluetooth requires your device to act as a server, whereas with Chromecast your device just acts as a remote with the Chromecast streaming directly from the internet....
