This is my set up:
External thunderbolt hard drive containing my music > iMac > Router/modem > Ethernet cable > Bridge II / Direct Stream DAC.
The computer is in a spare bedroom about 30 ft away.
I feel like the throwaway modem/router that Frontier provides might be compromising my speed of operation and sound quality.
Would I see any advantage by using a NAS or a streamer with local storage (like an Aurender N100H) parked by my system?
I would prefer to keep using the Bridge if possible.
