Do Streamer only devices really impact sound quality?
@soix - I was just trying to point out that something outstanding and fantastic could be had for thousands of dollars less than the Innuos Zen Mk3. Didn't say it sounded better.  
I've been selling heavier gear for lighter gear
I was struggling moving my Coda CSiB around so opted for some much lighter SPL separates. Lighter was the case, not just in weight but sound too. Then, after the 2-week-old pre-amp started turning on and off by itself and then the power amp went P...

@soix ​​@tk21 Speaking of Darko, on the other end of the spectrum, here he calls the WiiM Mini "Outstanding" "Fantastic" & "Favorite streamer of 2022" all for $79. https://darko.audio/2022/11/introducing-the-wiim-pro-network-streamer/

@sfseay - I renewed with Comcast for another year. I think I'll wait for some feedback from others who sign up with Ziply, but thanks for your feedback.

@mlsstl - opps, you are correct, I have the up & downloads speeds reversed!  @soix - OK, that makes sense to me. @erik_squires - Thanks for the links to the isolators. My router/modem are a single unit and will be on the same shelf as my aud...

Optical Isolation
@erik_squires - ah Eric, always the voice of wisdom, couldn't agree more. People go on & on about all this stuff in many threads about streaming. But they all know what they're talking about, buy the majority of us don't. It's all just Greek t...

@sns - 👍
