Hi everyone. Thanks for helping this noob!
My computer, modem, and wi-if router are in a downstairs room, and my audio system is upstairs. The path (for playing ripped CDs and Tidal is: downstairs computer running Room, with external hard drive containing files—->wired connection to modem—->wi-fi to upstairs Simaudio Moon streaming DAC—->wired connection to the audio system.
It’s working great, but I suspect that an Ethernet connection between the modem and the DAC might sound even better. Will having the cable company install another modem upstairs at my DAC and system location allow me to keep the computer/hard drive downstairs and gain any advantage of having a modem hardwired to the DAC? Does that signal flow (i.e. eliminating the wi-if) work? Would the signal from the downstairs computer reach the upstairs modem?
Thanks for your help with what is probably a silly question!
