My integrated amps don't have bluetooth receiver so I bought inexpensive bluetooth DAC from Ebay to try. I was quite surprised with the sound. Not bad at all. The gain is noticeably lower and have to turn up volume higher but other that that the sound is quite good.

Glad that the recommendation exceeded your expectation. If you like music then must get seal sub as it would be faster compare to port sub, JL is not bad as I have heard from a few forumers house.

I am using Bluesound node 2i also, it is huge difference to me between tidal hifi compare to bluetooth streaming, not sure is it because of blusound device. Maybe Pete's Cambridge is better.
