  1. I know a lot of audiophiles seem to choose Ethernet wired over wireless when it comes to streaming music - but can someone explain why? In my case I use a Squeezebox Duet - and from my understanding - wireless transmission from the source computer isn't being sent to the Duet as an analog music signal, it's sent via TCP/IP which will carry the information to the target (the Duet) perfectly - then the Duet holds the information in a large 30 second buffer where of course later on it gets converted to analog (in my case using an external DAC). Many may reply that the wireless transmitter is a cause of interference to the electronics, but computer based WiFi isn't anywhere near as strong as mobile phone signals that pass through my lounge on a day to day basis (neighbours and family for example). The other major advantage of wireless is complete isolation from the noisy electronics of a PC. Latency cannot be a problem either due to the large buffer in the Duet. So are we getting worked up over nothing perhaps?
