    Do Ethernet cables Make a Difference

    3. Did the sound get better?
    4. Did the sound get worse?
    5. Did the sound stay the same?

    Why can't anyone answer such basic questions?

    I'll add another: Where's the jitter?
    Let me try to answer.

    1. No magic
    2. Music already transferred from source to player device.
    3. No
    4. No
    5. Yes, same until it stops altogether.

    PS. No idea about jitter

    Re: Do Ethernet cables Make a Difference

    I auditioned AudioQuest Vodka and Cinnamon ethernet cables against my bog standard ones. Spent two hours listening to the same track and switching out each cable on a blind test basis. I picked the bog standard cable each time. I picked the more expensive vodka over the cinnamon more often than not but not every time. Went with the cinnamon to connect the jack to the router and the router to the NAS and the vodka to connect the router to the Lumin T1. Works a treat. Next step is to check out wklie’s suggestion of a FMC.
    Source: Synology NAS + Tidal
    Playback: Lumin T1
    Amp: Gryphon Diablo 300
    Speakers: Magico S3 MkII
    Cables: MIT SL-Matrix: 36 IC + 70 SCs
    Power: AQ Niagara 5000 + AQ Tornado PCs
    Headphones (travel): Sennheiser Momentum + Chord Mojo

    I did the same and bought vodka not 100% convinced but just to relieve my mind
    But if you wand mind bogling sq jump try upgrading the ps of modem-router- switch by order of priority or all in one.
    I did the later and the jump is just outstanding and very distinguishable.
    Even the pic in tv is so clear with better colors!
    I bought ifi power supply for 50$ each only,
    One guy tried sbooster wich the switch and said is even better!
    Cheers
