I’ve been using Minidsp for abou 15years but always in analog, I’m interested in ventureing into the digital domain of connectivity.
I’ve searched through the mass of information but still lost.
Am I able to stream digital audio from My “surface3” computer to daisy chained ice amps?
Can it be direct via USB or do I need something else.
Please point Me in the direction to become knowledgeable in the digital domain of audio.

You need a device that converts USB to a digital audio format like spdif, aes ebu, optical etc.
Try something like the breeze audio du8 or a gustard U12 or gustard u16.
Then daisy chain from one pwrice to another. Using aes ebu cables would be most straightforward way to do this.
