Variable stream transmission quality

I recently acquired a dCS Rossini Apex dac, with the idea of moving away from CDs, but I find sound differences between TIDAL and Qobuz when playing the same song. I have also noticed that the sound quality in general changes from day to day, so I thought about going back to the CD. I wonder if it has to do with the atmospheric condition that could affect the Stramer transmission?



Yes, it’s a very good DAC. Possibly (I’m guessing) changes in SQ could be due to the head end of the transmission or entry to your system, IOW, the provider of the signal. Or maybe your modem or router, RFI may also be introduced at some stage of the signal path.

I thank everyone for their participation, I have managed to substantially improve the reception quality, using Roon Nucleus as a server, in exchange for the previous NUC computer.
