I have a Zero DAC that connect to my laptop with a long USB cable and USB->SPDIF adapter.

Is there a better way to stream music via the DAC wirelessly?

I am using AE A5 speakers

if it is this way ... I will just stop using the zero DAC

find a new product, anyway quality will be slightly compromise, why do we bother with the Zero DAC

thanks for the recommendation, i am thinking if there is any adapter that make use of Kleer technology to transmit uncompressed audio digitally.

normal RF technology may have distortion but i have tried Kleer's headphone and it is much better in range and quality

How much can you spend? You could purchase the Arcam rDACkw and stream from their rWave dongle. Trouble is no 24/192. :-(
