Hi everyone Question: is there any obvious disadvantage to using powerline to spread the network around the house in terms of sound quality? I'm referring to devices like Develo powerline. I have one running at the moment that goes from my ISP's modem/router into a devolo, then comes out in the music room and goes into a passive D-Link 16-port switch. Thanks for your time and help!
Apologies in advance for a naive question, probably answered somewhere on the site, tho I can't find it. I am using Mac Mini running J River Media Centre in one room then wifi to an Airport Express in another, connecting to my amp via a 3.5mm jack and cable. There is a solid concrete floor between, so the wifi connection is not great - annoying dropouts. Connecting the two parts of the system by wire would be difficult - the concrete floor again. I am looking at Ethernet over Powerline. Can someone please outline the connections? I realize the signal over the powerline is digital, so I need a DAC between the powerline adapter and the amp. Is it as simple as Mac Mini to router, router to powerline adapter1 by ethernet, adapter2 to DAC, DAC to amp? Any other suggestions?
barito7 posted a topic in Networking, Networked Audio, and StreamingG'day CA Just wondering if anyone has successfully used a powerline network (power adaptors such as Belkin AV500) to connect a Mac mini using iTunes to an airport express (wired via power adaptor) in order to stream iTunes audio?
