Pimping your router


1. Use a wired router only
2. If wireless router is needed, separate router for wifi
3. only streamer, NOTHING ELSE connected 
4. use LPS to feed router
5. use shortest possible quality cable to streamer
6. use Acoustic Revive RLT-1 filter on spare router or streamer port
7. wrap router and LPS in EMI/RFI shielding material
8. use EMO EN70-HD filter near streamer for ethernet connection
9. use quality shielded cable between router and internet access point

All of these will individually improve your streaming SQ, in aggregate the effect is significant

A little addendum to the original post:

In the meantime I have added a WA Quantum Tuning Chip to the incoming ISP and outgoing Ethernet cables directly at the router. Further improvement in dimensionality, location and attack as well as clarity of bass.
There are many things we don‘t yet understand about digital transmission is my take....
@antigrunge2,

Thanks for posting your feedback. I have found a US reseller so I am going to order the WA chips for fuse, cable and power supplies. 
A further addition at the risk of looking compulsive: move your router to a different power spur from your main system and give it proper power treatment: i.e. filter, better power supply and cable, better fuse. It never ceases to amaze me how substantially additional efforts at noise suppression pay in the digital part of my system.

Totally agree. Every doodad in the digital chain benefits from tweaking. I also added this in-line dc power conditioner to the 4 DIY umbilical cords going to the LPS’s in my rig.

Earlier I asked about my Fios Quantum and Fios extender setup. My Lumin d1 is Ethernet connected but the Sony A9G,  Cambridge CXU, Yamaha RX-A2080 and Apple TV are wireless. Should I go Ethernet to the Sony A9G or take the advise and purchase a Acoustic Revive RLT-1 filter? The extender on has 2 Ethernet ports.
