I'd like to buy a used pair of stereo speakers (beolab 17, 4000, 6000, 8000 etc), but I want to check if the setup I am thinking of is doable:

I need a "thing" that I can stream to via Airplay 2 and that also has a digital input, so I can send the TV sound to it. This "thing" will then send the signals to the speakers (via RJ45 I guess).

(If it has 2 digital inputs, I can use one for TV sound and the other for Airport Express, so a built-in streamer (Airplay 2 etc) would then not be necessary.)

 

The Beosound Core I guess will do this, but only has Airplay 1 afaik. And it isn't cheap.

Hall Wifi streamer has Airplay 2 and hdmiarc input for TV, but only one rj45 output, can you daisy-chain with RJ45?

 

Suggestions appreciated!

Ok, B&O website only  says «Apple Airplay» in tech specs, usually they specify that it’s version 2 in tech specs (they do in other products), so I got confused about that.
