Where does it end?
“Last month I spent $4,300 on a pair of *used* speaker cables.”Well, you didn’t say what brand of cables or details of rest of your system but $4300 is lot of money for used speaker cables. May be rest of your system is say over $100K to justify t... 
Bluesound Node2i and wifi frustrations: Mesh!
@musicfan2349,Great move on buying the Border Patrol DAC to get the best sound out of Node 2i. I’m not clear on why you need long CAT8 cable if you’re using a mesh router. If you worried about EMI/RFI interferences from mesh, I suggest you use Sti... 
VINYL SUCKS!
Vinyl is far from perfect when compared to R2R and Digital. I have yet to hear a pressing that is completely devoid of surface noise, pops, glitch and ticks. IME, Vinyl is a constant reminder that you are listening to a inferior audio format...all... 
Bluesound Node2i and wifi frustrations: Mesh!
+1, jetter. Supra CAT 8 is a worthy upgrade for Node 2i. If you find this cable overkill then it seems streaming is not your focus :-) If you use Node 2i for background music then please don’t waste your money on Supra. PS: I would not use powerli... 
Pimping your router
@pokey77,I am not familiar with your setup. Are you currently running a 20FT fiberoptic cable from etherRegen to your streamer? My Apple router is only 4FT away from my streamer and ENO Filter can only accept RJ45 LAN cable. The improvements I’ve ... 
Streamers with best apps?
“Streamers with best apps?”For me, Aurender with their Conductor App. Been using it for 5 plus years. Nothing else out there I care or feel the need to explore :-)

Interesting conversations.....I have tried Fiberoptic years ago and to my ears, fiber did not sounded fuller and dynamic compare to LAN cable (RJ45). I also prefer a simpler and clutter free approach, the fewer devices (conversions) in the chain y... 
Streaming Sound Quality - Want the very best sound quality? Network Acoustics ENO...
@mitch2 Congratulations on your new DAC. Mojo makes great sounding DAC’s. BTW, your system is amazing. I believe ENO filter with their LAN cable is worth a trial in your system. Reach out to Richard at Network Acoustics for one on one consultation...

@mitch2I get what you saying. The level of improvement from cables and filters are very subjective and system dependent. I can only speak to my experience with ENO Ag Filter / Ag LAN and USB cable. I can only encourage you to try ENO filter and LA...

@musicfan2349,You can certainly turn off the node during vinyl playback or alternatively place the ERS on top or around mesh. I am using a small cut-out on top of my Apple router. https://www.stillpoints.us/index.php/product/ers 
VINYL SUCKS!
It’s hilarious to see some people here advocating VINYL superiority relentlessly. They are completely oblivious to latest trends in music industry. Talk about living in a bubble 😂https://www.riaa.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/2020-Year-End-Music-...

@audioguy85Yeah, like analog is plug n play 😂. By your own admission on another thread, “Analog is a very involving listen. However, it does require work, but I like the challenge.”A good playback system regardless of the format requires work. 
Is It Time To Sell My Vinyl Rig?
“Vinyl is priceless, digital is free.”“This is why streaming can’t replace the analog, never! ”@chakster These statements are so inane....but then again as you’ve pointed out in your previous post, “vinyl lovers are a bit crazy about their hobby”.   
For a few dollars more

@arafiq The USB cable from Network Acoustics comes with most common industry standard terminations, i.e. Type A on streamer output and Type B on DAC input.
