    Ethernet cable

    Can anyone recommend a network or cat 5 cable to go between the server and my DAC. I am willing to spend money but not 1000,s of dollars.

    Yes the Wireworld Starlight is really good. Their lesser priced Chroma is actually very good value. It easily beat a long run of Audioquest Cinnamon.

    I use a 8m run of Chroma between my wall jack and a Thunderbolt Ethernet adapter connected to my Mac Mini - and then a 1m run of Starlight between the built in Ethernet adapter on the Mac Mini and a Sonore microRendu. (A bridged connection sounds better).

    Blue Jeans Cable. All their CAT6 come with a certification paper.

    Not sure of the length you need, however I would recommend you look to a higher specification cable since they have a far greater bandwidth courtesy of the lower noise conferred by more sophisticated shielding (the data pair wires are additionally individually shielded). They also use larger conductors so you will experience lower resistance / voltage drop.

    I use jcat lan cable, it makes a difference compared to generic cable but don' t ask me why, I don' know
    Probably because of less RMI / EMI trasmission to the server.

    Hi Jeffy and good afternoon to you. Please offer us feedback on how it sounds. I am in the market for one....a 75 footer. Thanks.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

    I post my own opinions except when posting as a moderator in green.
