What is next step up? My Airport Express just went belly up

Have used the AE for years and have been satisfied with SQ but would like recommendations on improvements in SQ but as cost effective as possible. Spending up to 5-6 hundred would be doable. What do you think? Plug and play or less complex set up appreciated.

Chromecast Audio on eBay? It doesn’t support Airplay however. I switched over when one of my AE’s died. works well with Roon.

Problem solved. I had an old Apple TV with the optical out that is working perfectly. Thanks for the other idea.
