    If I'm in the same room as the router I can get a strong wifi signal and get no problems - if I move around the house the signal can drop considerably and as a result I will get significant dropouts.

    My daughter had a gaming rig in her bedroom and the wifi dropouts were so bad she couldn't take part online (despite the wifi signal strength being not too bad).
    I ran an ethernet cable up through the living room ceiling to the PC - problem instantly solved.

    Notable that the wifi distance was actually significantly shorter than the cable run

    Ok, thanks for that.

    An LPS would benefit the router especially as most use an SMPS which adds further pollution into the router which itself can be electrically noisy.

    On the question of Wifi over Ethernet connection it all depends on Wifi traffic and use whilst using router for audio connection and also how much wifi is surrounding your house from neighbours. Also the streamer or device connected via wifi may not be optimised to handle wifi quietly. Hence companies like Innuos are using Ethernet option only.


    One way of wiring up digital system to negate some of the possible electrical activity or RFI down Ethernet cables could be to use TP links as in this system.

    I assume that only affects streaming though (which makes sense)? When using the WiFi for the GUI only and actually playing files from a connected hard drive it shouldn't matter.

    Has anyone compared a digione to a microrendu?

    I recently compared a rpi3/digione to a rpi2/hifiberry hat and the digione was clearly better by some mark.

    Got me wondering how a microrendu may compare to the digione?

    A more accurate comparison would be with the Allo USBridge, which I havenít used.

    I did experience a couple of dropouts, so this is a cast iron reason to use Ethernet. Also, I wonder about the impact of RF noise when WiFi is enabled.

    So I had a play last night, back to hardwired and found in Moode settings that you can disable WiFi and Bluetooth, so I did that too for piece of mind. It fits behind my DAC too on the same rack shelf.

    This little transport is astoundingly good. I have noticed some reports claiming that it can be a bit bright, but I notice none of this. Sometimes, a lower jitter signal can alter the DAC balance I.e. make the sound too sharp and clinical, but not with a TDA1541A.
