There is none out there......

I need a Wi- Fi streamer and cd zipper in one box......I have a 30 K ethernet connection........Bluesound Vault is the Only streamer out there that meets my requirements BUT  ......I've been told by Hi-Fi sales people, "it won't sound that good on a high end system".......All the other cd Zippers/ Streamers are Ethernet hard wired ONLY........Anybody know of one?


There is none out there cause Wi-Fi is not recommended for optimal audio performance from a streamer. As @soix pointed out, get a pair of mesh network pods to extend the range. 

I did see a Naim streamer at it wi-fi......I’ll check. .....I never heard the term Mesh Pods....what are they and what do they do?


You need a pair of pods, one pod connects directly to your existing modem or router and extends your network to a 2nd pod which allows hard wired connection to your choice of streamer.

You can stream content over WiFi to many streamers as many have suggested by using a WiFi extender near a streamer that utilizes an ethernet input.

NAIM do make streamer / DAC that have WiFi capability internal, i use one in my condo system w excellent sonic results ( NAIM Atom ). I’ve tested it hardwird and the sonic differences were minor. There are a lot of variables that might effect that result, so YMMV… 

Also Moon make an excellent MIND2 that seems to perform well w WiFi…i had that in my reference system to evaluate and it did well. NAIM also build a Server / Ripper called Core but as others have noted it will be a LOT less $ to rip elsewhere using a product like DB Poweramp and then move the files.

Auralic Aries models will rip and play CDs if a USB CD drive is connected. They also have excellent wireless networking. I have owned two and can't fault the sound.

If you want a streamer with DAC, look into their Altair series instead.
