    H390 streaming - question

    Hi,

    After looking at so many options to stream Tidal I think I'm coming to the conclusion that the H390 maybe my perfect solution. However, I'm still unclear about how best to stream to it.

    As I understand the H390 prefers to be hardwired to a network via ethernet. Here lies a problem for me. My listening room is three floors away from my router. I do, however, have the Netgear Nighthawk wifi 6 mesh with two satellite extenders. I could place one of the extenders that have an ethernet port on it in the listening room.

    Do you think this is a suitable and reliable solution to being hard-wired and is there a way to test to see if it is?

    Thanks

    Have you ever streamed Tidal or Qobuz before - prior to getting the H390? If your network system was OK with your previous streamer, it will be OK with the new one - Hegel isn't more greedy than any other streamer. Even if you used wi-fi before (never ideal) and it suffered few if any dropouts, the Hegel should perform similarly. I guess the Hegel has a wi-fi ability. Otherwise you could use your house wiring to carry the signal from your router (all effectively hard wired) using a pair of Powerline Extenders.

    Tell me if i'm wrong. My h360 max rez is 24/96 so wifi didn't cost but the new 390 has higher resolution that you wouldn't get with wifi anywhere in the chain no?

    I don't know the spec of wi-fi or the different damands (if any) of a streamer that offers hi-res streaming, or H390 vs H360. If you're concerned, all the more reason for looking into Powerline Extenders. They cost £50 per pair or so and extra receivers are available so you can hard wire other things around your house as well as your streamer, that may need a better link than your wi-fi can offer.
