- without having to turn on the tv, instead being controlled from a computer, tablet or phone.
- the music files themselves being stored on a local NAS or a local share from a computer etc.
- with the ability to play at least lossless 44.1 KHz 16-bit but preferably lossless 192 KHz 24-bit.
The answer to #1
is yes. In fact, you MUST use Chromecast this way. There is no remote control, or way to control it, except via apps on other devices.
: Sort of. If you use a quasi proprietary DLNA server that has a dedicated special client app that is Chromecast friendly. (Plex is often mentioned.)
: I don't know, since I don't have an app like alluded to in #2
, and none of the movie services are streaming high res soundtracks.
