The time I've spent in finding something that sounds good with CD playback I do not want to repeat with other digital audio playback formats..... Even if it might ultimately beat the CD from a sonic and musical enjoyment standpoint.
I get that. The journey for me was long with a number of pot holes in the way. Having said that, I find the challenge was well worth the effort. While perhaps not quite as passionate about the ill effect of RFI, I've taken quite a few steps to minimize its effects with my computer based system.
First and foremost - the music server isn't remotely close to the listening areas. I use shielded CAT7 to get the signal to the player upstairs. All sources run through a conditioner and amplification through dedicated lines. The uRendu player uses a power supply which delivers galvanic isolation from the AC.
The beauty is being able to focus more on the music - all of it and instantly! - without having to futz around handling shiny frisbees. :)
