    "runs off some HDD's". Presumably these contain your music files?

    These could be hanging off the back of an inexpensive PC (mine cost less than 50) running Minim Server (free).

    Your Pioneer N30 would see this Media server via wi-fi & stream all files wirelessly. Control it all with a cheap Amazon Fire tablet (often available for 30) running Linn Kazoo (free). 100% galvanic isolation because there are no wires connecting the media server and the media renderer (Pioneer N30).

    If you can stretch to 660 I would strongly recommend Etheregen network switch. I introduced one into my system fed from a powerline adapter ethernet and its made an enormous difference to soundstage, tone , musicality and resolution of my system.

    If you cant stretch that far a second hand cisco 2960 switch is relatively cheap if you can get an LPS onto it assuming you already have one you can notice a difference over normal switches. This is where I was before the etheregen switch. I would save up for the etherregen if you dont currently have LPS for a normal network switch you can try one for 30 days for the price of return postage.

    I got a similar benefit from a 20 Netgear switch and is better when powered by a battery. I suggest you try that first to see if it makes any difference to your sound.

    Some of the netgear switches are pretty decent but the ciscos are better and the etherregen wayyy better.

    There is a ground shunt modification you can make to typical walwart smps that make a significant improvement improvements too if you just have a standard switch too. Good thread on audiophile style with much discussion on this modification.
