Apple TV

Leif wonders if the Apple HomePod will be worth it. Leo says it's too early to tell, so it's a good idea to wait and see.

How can Leif watch TV using his Mac? Could he use TOSLINK? Leo says to use an AppleTV, and then he can AirPlay from his mobile device. It's easier and will see iTunes on the network.

Another cheap way is Chromecast Audio, which costs $35 and doesn't require an Apple ecosystem. He should just make sure he has Home Sharing turned on. Leo says he can connect directly via USB to audio out as well.
