It sounds unbelievable in 2024, but Auralic doesn't support Android. BTW was wondering what makes an Auralic such a good wireless streaming device, compared to other companies that also include WiFi in their streamers? Not to open another can of ...

Better silly talk than silly walk. (If you are old enough then you know Monty Python had a ministry for that).

Thanks, the Auralic G1 looks interesting and on the used market affordable. You say it's at the bright side. I guess my Merason Frerot dac can handle that. But does it also have an Android app?

Yes it does with a usb WiFi antenna. Should be the same as built-in WiFi. Not sure if I would need dsd and more than 192k. List price was €3490 versus €990 for the Volumio. Something will account for the price difference....

Actually, I am hesitating between the Volumio Rivo and the Metronome DSS1 which is much more expensive but I can get for a good price. It's from a high-end french company.

Measured again. Speed is 144Mbps, strength -42 dBm. I assume that is good enough for WiFi connection I guess. I have seen the 432 EVO but it's not wireless, I think. The Italian  Volumio Revo looks great too at an affordable price.

Does anyone know if a higher end wifi streamer is better able to 'neutralize'  the lower quality of the wireless connection (vs wired) than a cheaper streamer?

Because of all kinds of security issues, it appears I cannot install a mesh network in the house. That means I would need a streamer with WiFi connectivity. The Métronome DSS2 ticks all the boxes, but is expensive and not available on the used mar...

To make a wireless connection, is Is anyone of you using a TP link plugged into your router in one space and a slave unit put into the room the system is in, and from there to your streamer? Would that work for high resolution files?

@audphile1 No worries, as long as it is funny and ethical. Indeed, I would prefer a double blind experimental setup. @moonwatcher I am using Qobuz since 2015.Good point about the interface.

That sounds like a good price. Which CD-Player are you using? Vinyl is also my number one.

Thanks, makes sense! Now just need to find the right streamer model that can be tried at home in my system. And then trying to eliminate confounders...

Might be true, I don't know. I like(d) my streamer but it doesn't function anymore, so that's why I need a new one. Bottom line is that I am trying to find one now that comes close to what I hear/like from my CD transport. That's all.
