  1. Network Isolation

    Long shot here but I inherited a few of I assume is some sort of in-line isolation device and was hoping someone here could tell me exactly what I have from the photos.
  2. Thanks Eloise. This may be simplifying things a bit but in order for the zones to be "seen" by JRMC it sounds like there are two options. Either the program recognizes available channels locally on the sound card/DAC or it finds zones on the network by way of DLNA?? I will likely be steering clear of multiple amps directly connected to the laptop and running speaker wire etc. But not ruling it out. But at this point if I just run Cat6 in my walls, I would stuck with something like Sonos or another DLNA type system? (Or a mix and match of DLNA equipment). Any other options with just running Cat6? Or do I have a basic understanding? Thanks again.
  3. First, THANK YOU all who contribute your knowledge on this site. I've learned so much. My question revolves around a networked/whole house audio system I have only envisioned at this point. But recent home improvements had me open up several walls and with so much time invested in quietly ripping and organizing a 700G/24000 song library I want to take this time to get the future infrastructure correct. The plan is to use JRMC installed on a windows laptop for control and playback of the music files on a NAS of some sorts. Ideally I would like 4 zones not counting my existing studio monitors connected to the laptop. I have several questions that may come to light after answering my first main question. Can I just run CAT6 from the laptop running JRMC direct to the NAS and still get multizone audio from future wired CAT6? OR do I need to add a sound card capable of sending multi-channel out from the laptop to the NAS? And if it is the later, what would this connection be? As you can tell I'm a little confused how that aspect works.
