I recently purchased a sonicTransporter i5 w/ 1TB SSD with an Ultrarendu. I’m now using the sonicTransporter as my Roon server, this is connected to the UR and run through the USB DAC on an Oppo 205. I have a couple Elac Discovery Z3 endpoints that I connect to via wifi for multiroom room listening.
I’m using Spectrum broadband internet (100+ mbps d/l speeds, seems to be the fastest I can find in LA) and have it connected to a Netgear Orbi wifi mesh system with two satellite extenders in a 2200 sq. ft. house. The ST and the UR and connected directly to the Orbing router.
I am using the parametric EQ on the Z3 satellites but am not using anything else in the DSP Engine section.
The problem I’m having is when I group either of the Z3 speakers with the UR and my main stereo, I get a mottled, almost underwater sound from the main system. It goes in and out like that for a while. I never experienced this with the MacMini I was using prior (to be fair, I had all sorts of other issues with that machine). If I can pinpoint what the issue is, I think I have finally found a good set up for streaming after 10+ years. When I am just using my main stereo, with no wifi endpoints involved, the sound is incredible.
Any help identifying the issue would be appreciated.
