RE: Bluetooth DAC recommendation please

Yes the sound should be better with Chromecast Audio than using your phone's headphone jack into the receiver ( subject to the point that I make on data rates below).

In general Chromecast Audio may offer a higher sound quality than plain vanilla Bluetooth as it caters for higher resolution sources. However this may be of little significance with streamed internet radio as the data rate may be limited and will not exceed the capabilities of either choice. The same question and the general output quality of the station per se may also impact upon any subjective improvement of the Chromecast Audio or Bluetooth device over connecting via your phone's headphone socket.
