Improving Yamaha R-N803 DAC ideas

Hello Community,
How is everybody?

I need some help. Getting the best sound is someone overwhelming.

I have a Yamaha R-N803 receiver. The best results I have got so far is with streaming from Deezer from within the Yamaha(has a ESS Sabre 9006). The Yamaha does not support Quobuz.

Do you think that getting an AudioQuest DragonFly Cobalt (ESS Sabre 9038 Q2Mobile-low-power) and connecting to my iPhone would yield better results? i.e.:

iPhone(Apps:Music/QuobuzApp/Deezer/Tidal) --> Lightning-to-USB-camera-adapter--> USBin_DragonflyCobalt_3.5mmOut -->3.5mm cable to RCA--> Yamaha LINE IN.

or is there another 'box' I could get instead?

Thank you in advance for your expertise.

- Frank.
