I'm looking for a Spotify Connect device with optical (TOSlink) output and it must support gapless playback.
By 'gapless playback' I mean it must play a live album like Coldplay 'Live in Buenos Aires' without any two second gap/silence during track transitions. No gap, no silence, no pause between tracks in this live album (or any live album). You can hear the crowd cheers continuing between tracks, without gaps.
The Bluesound Node 2i does have optical output and does support gapless playback (I've had a couple people test and confirm).
Are there any other devices that the Community is aware of?
