I use Verizon Fios for my internet, TV and 2 landlines. The Verizon supplied router is located upstairs in my office.
My Roon Core is on my music server (Antipodes CX) which is in the downstairs living room. The living room does not have an ethernet jack.
To solve that shortcoming Verizon installed a MOCA device which connects to the junction box (ONT?) via a long (90 ft) run of coax cable. I then connect the music server to the MOCA box with audiophile grade ethernet cable.
My basic objective is to upgrade the network with higher quality components that are highly reliable and relatively maintenance free.
I’m seeking advice on what network components are compatible with the FIOS system.
Ideally your response will specify: 1) Modestly priced gear that is a step-up over the Verizon supplied gear and 2) Higher-end audiophile level gear.
With all due respect I’m not interested in a discussion of whether “audiophile grade” network components make an audible difference. As they say “Voodoo works” if you believe in it:)
Just wondering if anyone can recommend specific gear for my application.
