Streaming HiRes to stereo receiver.

Hello all,

I am new here (forum) and to the world of hires audio. I am building my rig for just listening to hi res music from either Deezer or tidal. The receiver is a Yamaha A S-801 which has good DAC and therefore, don't need a separate unit which has a DAC which would add to the units price. Also, this receiver does not have Wi-Fi or Bluetooth or internet connectivity.

My question is regarding streaming. I have been looking at some streaming solutions such as bluesound node 2i but are wondering if I could just stream from my tv Tidal/Deezer apps and run the tv's optical to the Yamaha directly. would the audio quality suffer from a setup like this or is a dedicated unit offer higher quality audio. please keep in mind that the Yamaha receiver has its own quality 32-bit dac.

Thanks so much for your answers!

What's your budget? Also, is there a TV/monitor near the Yamaha?
