Before upgrading to Bridge II, I want to ask anyone who has been using it with a router on a *single Windows computer if there have been any problems, technical or sonic. I’ve been told that it works well with Macs, but after my less than satisfactory technical experience (instability) with ethernet between DS/Bridge I and a router, I want to double check first. Since abandoning Bridge I, I’ve used a nice USB setup with the DS, which has not only been stable, but a sonic improvement as well. If via ethernet I could simplify things and get better sound in the bargain, that would be great.
About ethernet cables: With the Bridge I and my then router (Windows 8/8.1 desktop), I found they made a noticeable sound difference. In order, the quality was Audioquest Vodka > Meicord > Blue Jeans > Monoprice > OEM. So now Paul and some others say the cable no longer makes a difference with Bridge II, and Paul has explained why in his blog. But me being a touch obsessive, I note they’re all using MACs. So I better ask: Windows too? Thanks,
