A:AnswerHe's right that it doesn't support iTunes -- but no problem. Download the free version of Google Play Music and it will grab all your iTunes library and load it into a Google cloud automatically. It will even grab new songs as you add them to iTunes. Then use the Play Music App on your Mini or Air to play your iTunes songs through Chromecast Audio. Works great. Nice interface too. The alternative is an App called Plex, which also works, but I like Play Music just fine.
A:AnswerCCA device has NO battery. It only works when fed by 5volt USB. It also only works when logged onto wifi. An external USB battery or a speaker with a USB port would run it untethered to the wall.
A:AnswerYou sure can, I have it plugged into my Sony receiver. You'll need a 3.5mm (plugs into the Chromecast) to RCA cable (plugs into one of your receivers audio inputs), download the Google home app to configure it, and use a streaming service to play through it (I use Spotify). Then if you have another able speaker /receiver, you can hook up another Chromecast to it and stream in perfect harmony.
A:AnswerNow that Chromecast Audio has a "multi-room" feature, yes you can absolutely do this. Just open up the Chromecast app and create an "audio group", see https://support.google.com/chromecast/answer/6328691 for more. I did this in my house and it sounds great!
A:AnswerCD audio is 44.1kHz/16-bit. If you rip it any higher you are just wasting disk space and not adding anything to the quality.
The only way to get higher resolution audio than a CD is if the copyright holder decides to make it available in a format other than CD. This tends to be pretty rare and/or expensive. The only music store I know of for this is HDtracks.
