Osprey II mini wifi hotspot
15,000 (a guess)
I hope someone can help with a rather rambling question.
I am currently at the planning stage of setting up a digital music library. Currently I’m leaning towards getting a Roon Nucleus and feeding the output to a Mytek Brooklyn Bridge.
I don’t yet have an ethernet network but I do have the hardware sitting in a box when I’m ready to build.
My query is with regard to internet access, which is not with a conventional router. My internet is via wifi from an Osprey II mobile wifi hotspot. The only connection port is a single usb and on my setup this is only used to power the device.
Currently, I have no intention of streaming content from internet providers such as Tidal, Qubuz et al. But I do want to play digital files on an SDD via usb (connected to the Nucleus and/or it’s internal storage) or via ethernet network.
I’m aware that the Nucleus does not have wifi and that it’s not recommended for streaming.
Would the Nucleus recognise an internet connection if the Osprey was connected directly via usb (my iMac will connect to the internet if I have the Osprey on usb and wifi is turned off)? Or would it be better to setup an ethernet network and have the Osprey usb connected to an ethernet network via a usb/ethernet adaptor.
I’m really only concerned with enabling the Nucleus to have an internet connection for software purposes. The digital content would be to the Mytek dac either directly via usb or through the ethernet network.
Hope this make some sense.
