Ok, firstly apologies if this is in the wrong section. I couldn’t figure out if it needs to be in the DSJ subforum or the Bridge II or whatever.
Also, I hope I haven’t missed this question in another thread.
I am successfully using a Roon Rock NUC as my Roon Server. I have it connected through a CAT5 cable to a wall outlet that leads to the router in my office. Roon recommends using an ethernet connection rather than WIFI as it has a a higher bandwidth,
I have my Direct Stream Junior connected to another ethernet outlet that runs to another port in the same router. This all works fine but I would like to see whether there is a simpler solution whereby I place ethernet / network switch in my room to connect the DSJ and the Roon ROck server to which (hopefully) will allow them to communicate without running through the router. Due to the fact that I am in an office, the internet can get strained (we have rubbish internet in Australia) and if someone is using VOIP and downloading at the same time, the available bandwidth can get gobbled up. It’s also a bit more elegant perhaps.
Does anyone think this might work or am I totally misunderstanding the way that the DSJ and the Server will need to be connected??
