    Networking for audiophiles

    Small Green Computer made a 2021 AXPONA presentation on this topic. Very clear. Very simple and straightforward. Answered nearly all the questions I had about Ethernet, CAT vs optical Ethernet, effect of better linear power supplies and more. HIGHLY recommended!

    I have no affiliation with SGC and do not own any of their products.

    Andrew presented a great basic description of how the network is applied for audio. I will definitely share it with a few friends and family that have asked me how it all works.

    I am a SGC owner and highly recommend them. I use an i9 SonicTransporter and UltraRendu in my system. Moving to it form a laptop was a major step up in sound quality and ease of use.

    Anything will sound better when moving from streaming off a general purpose laptop. I try to tell people that anytime I can, but for some reason my comments are always met with stiff resistance from folks in the name of science. 😂😂
