    I see the Innuos needs a hardwired network connection. It’s possible, I would just need to run fifty feet of Cat5 wire. I have Verizon Fios. I had them run the fiber optic cable fifty feet into the bedroom near my computers when maybe I should have had them stick the network box behind the stereo to give it a drop and run fifty feet of Cat5 to the bedroom. Now, I need fifty feet of Cat5 back to the stereo. The fiber optic cable is much smaller than the Cat5 and is easier to hide. Oh, well.
    CAT6 or above mate and never, ever CAT5e. Cat 7 is very best of the lot. For SQ, Windows slays Linux every time, but of course the purpose built Linux Streamers/Servers have best user experience. Thank me later!

    This is far from universal truth.

    LOL, I'm not getting into that argument. ;-)

    If you want to move the needle, sound quality wise, upgrade your amp, that's my opinion. Get an amp you can't lift.

    I don't have Cat anything at the moment, I'm streaming wirelessly but I will consider Cat 6, 7, or whatever. I'm sorry my age is showing with my references to Cat 5.

    If anybody's curious about the Aqua Formula xHD, we're showing it at THE Show this next weekend, Grove 1 room. And, if DHL helps, we'll also have the Innuos Statement music server.


    cheers,

    me nether

    it is not up for debate. i throw out pearls of wisdom and people accept or not. I am not selling anything, so am not bothered either way.

    i agree that low Z amps matter and matter big. transports also matter. try thee Memory Player software suite and you will understand what extreme jitter killing can do. ..why you dont need a fancy clock when your data structure is properly and cleverly done. fundamental understanding is key.
