    Unfortunately, filtering does not work like that. Especially with high-frequency noise.

    The filtering has to be close to the load to be effective.
    This means that you would need such a filter really close to every device that you want to protect. Or at least between the device and the source of the noise.

    By sticking it somewhere randomly, you could get some improvement if you are lucky, but you will most likely still get lots of high-frequency stuff on your devices. The amount of the effect will of course heavily depend on the level of optimization of your device's psu for high frequency stuff.

    I used powerline adapters for a while, but I got some nasty cracking noise on my speakers so I got rid of them.
    I now use only ethernet or wifi

    They wouldn't fit your socket upstairs because it would have meant running additional cable, and they're not interested in doing it - end of story.
    All they do with any customer is reuse existing cable running back to the nearest roadside box to provide the service, where there will be a new service provided over a different cable pair.
    They move the jumper wire, and hey presto, new service.

    Draytek Vigor routers are pretty good for WiFi coverage, as are some of the Netgear routers.
    Most of the IT companies I do work for install the Draytek stuff.

    I use TP powerline adaptors for my PC for the simple reason:- over wifi the max speed is 30mbs and on ethernet using the powerline adaptors 80+mbs.

    My attitude is don't use powerline adapters, because sharing power cables in the house with transmitting music with all the electrical interfearance is never a good thing.

    I've used powerline myself and they don't work as well as the following idea;

    If your music system is in a different room to your router, use a wi fi extender with its own lan to create a seperate network, and put any nas on the extender. Also you limit the length of cable runs and can benefit from better quality Ethernet cabling and no sharing with electrical mains etc.

    The cost of a good extender is roughly the same as very good powerline adapters as well. I use a netgear nighthawk extender. By having a lan in the extender it's the same as a lan (local area network) in a router. Just get the music on any pc to share itself to the nas connected to the extender with appropriate pc software.

    I found with powerline the sound not as good, but of course it always depends on how decent the system is and worked out by experimentation.
