Sure there are 100 ways to skin a cat and even more to serve your music.
Best not to belittle people and bash their methods, not that anyone here would do such a thing.....Hmmmmmm
Gerbera is another good solution.
Dynobots Audio - Music is the Bridge Between Heaven and Earth
doesn't think their own way is best, or even better than anyone else's (OK, if you're into Bose, all bets are off).
That's mostly the product of years (if not decades) attending audio shows from CES to regional meetings where I have had the chance to hear just about everything.
Some ways of playing back music may sound a bit be better than others, but I can say with some confidence that the BEST of just about ANY and ALL ways, be it vinyl, reel to reel, digital or whatever, be it sand amp or tube amp, be it cones and domes, big panels or (god help us) horns, sounds pretty darned good!
I find that one's choices greatly reflect on the nature of their network along with computer needs and choices.
Long before I became a LMS user, my infrastructure was already in place with my home office setup. I didn't have to change a thing. Nor do I find a reason to do so years later.
OK, well I did acquire a linear power supply to feed the cable modem and router. :)
I'd be out of luck with my current setup, at least for LMS and the Pi.
WiFi is such an awful alternative for audio, IMNSHO.
But I suppose everyone to their own poison.
Of course if I had no other choice, I'd say it's fine! ;-)
I use CAT7 with the main system. :)
I have three 802.11N WiFi access points around the house which works just fine for most applications including the garage system and outside Canary camera. Signal strength ensures buffer-free playback of 24/96 content.
Fully capable of gigabit speeds, as it turns out.
We've had the whole house wired with it since 2004 or so, using it for phone lines without a clue until the Sonic Fiber guy pointed out that I could have the whole house wired for ethernet by just replacing the wall jacks with RJ-45 sockets.
And good for 100 gigabit for up to 15 meters - the length of the run to my listening room :)
