Isn't there a DAC in the Cambridge? Meaning you would only need to hook it up to an amp, and hook that up to your speakers?
Is there a very specific reason you're picking the Cambridge instead of a Bluesound for example?
Wifi transfers sound better than Bluetooth,
It's more accurate to say that wifi has higher bandwidth than bluetooth, so you can use a better encoding. Bluetooth encodings can be decent, but are not as good as what you can do over a conventional network layer for IP.
Ethernet in turn better than Wifi.
This is not true. Wired ethernet has more reliable throughput, but wifi (especially 5 GHz, with lower range and less contention) has more than enough bandwidth for even uncompressed Red Book audio (1.4 Mb/s).
This is where some will say that bits are bits and any improvement is all in the listener's head. I'd certainly be up for doing a double-blind test.
You should absolutely audition such a purchase. The one that sounds best to you is what you should get.

A frickin' spoon. And I'm just, dying laughing right? So I just scoop out his eyeballs with it and his kids are like, 'waaah', he can't see where he's going, bumping into stuff, maybe you just had to be there. Anyway, the moral is, you're a total bitch." - Handsome Jack
