Newby first system recomendations

Hi all,

I'm new to this hobby and exploring building my first decent setup.

My initial question mostly revolve around limitations of Spotify streaming source audio, and if makes sense to invest in higher end equipment given the lower quality of this source. I really like the convenience of Spotify, so def prefer to stick with it as my source for music.

Frankly I have a lot of questions and driving myself a bit crazy being obsessed with researching different things online. Kind of fun but exhausting :) I realize auditioning different things would be ideal, but for now I'm going to have to stick to theory.

So, here is one scenario I am considering, maybe folks can give me opinion on good, bad, unnecessary...

-Raspberry Pi 4 with DigiOne Signature, used to stream Spotify
-Out of DigiOne Signature into Schitt Modi 3
-Out of Modi 3 into Schitt Saga + preamp (I like the idea of tube preamp)
-Out of Saga + into Schitt Vidar Class AB 100W x2 amp
-Out of Vidar into Klipsch RP-8000F tower speakers

Feel free to comment on any part of this proposed system, but mainly I'm curious if the DigiOne Signature is overkill given the source is Spotify. Maybe I would get same quality using an Allo Boss DAC Hat and going straight into Saga preamp.

Part of my "problem" is budget really isn't much of a concern, but I'd rather not waste money on things that wont make any difference when just streaming spotify.

Anyhow, I hope that wasn't to long and drawn out, any thoughts?
