Home Digital Drive

Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Interesting

The link attached leads to quite a good and simple Wikipedia article.

In respect of your other query I don't know exactly what you are doing and what it is that you link digitally to your streamer, what connections you use etc. Looking at the specifications I would guess that the usual connectivity would be via USB or ethernet but I see that SP/Dif co-ax and optical inputs also feature. Do you connect to a NAS or something similar?

If you are using TPlink for other types of digital distribution via the home mains wiring then the damage is done and plugging the network streamer into any wall socket will still mean using distorted power. However if the TPLink connection is only for this device then I would switch to a hard wired connection suitable to your needs and the device's connections. So ethernet cable is one way to go but I do know of people who say that using computer network optical cabling is better. However this adds a level of complexity and expense. Sticking with basic but decent quality Cat5 cabling if suitable you could then just try a connection with it against the TPLink and see what difference it makes - that would be a cheap comparison.

In any case I am sure that there will be better qualified inmates than myself able to deal with this.
