Description of Issue

finally I have moved from WLAN to LAN (Router → Streamer)
And I connected a Netswitch as well.
So data is transferred from the router to the switch,
and then from the switch to the streamer a n d to a TV.
It’s a strong and stable connection.

Now the audiophile :rofl: question regarding soundquality:
May the fact that my LAN now sends data for HiRes music and TV in parallel (somehow concurring)
have an impact on the soundquality ? At least technically ?
I did listening tests and I heard no difference.
I understood that the LAN does not transport music or movies, but data packages…

Thanks in advance.

If the network is configured correctly and has enough bandwidth, then no.


Correct. Data packages. 1s and 0s over TCP/IP.

Relax and enjoy your music! :slightly_smiling_face:
