7. Near the end of the gathering when all of us were tired and wanted to go home, we were listening to a SOtMx2 connected with optical fiber.
I suggested to test a last tweak : to replace a cheap ethernet cable which was connecting the music file NAS to the SOtM1 with a Vertere HB ethernet cable.
All the attendees were wakened up by the sudden surge/improvement of sound quality. The Vertere gave the music back much richness and musicality!
This was a surprise, telling us that every steps/components in the network pathway did matter!
Do you think that making a CAS system to sound good is more difficult than to do so for a LP playback system? Haha
I read you guys' report repeatedly, very enjoyable and enlights me in my ways.
I'm using melco s100 switch between my Synology Roon core / music storage and dCS Bartok, s100 to Bartok use Shunyata Sigma lan cable, but s100 to NAS use a cat8 professional cable only.
I find the SQ is still a bit below my CD transport to Mutec to dCS, so wonder if i shall upgrade the NAS to switch cable could help, and model or level of cabke shall i use ?
