I am running the usual two PC JPlay setting:

Windows 2019, Server Boards, ECC Ram from Apacer, SLC SSDs, AO, RME 9632 Soundcard

So far so good. Very nice results.


Now I also want to use Qobuz, which forces me into having an internet connection.

I know CAT5 lan connection would be the best, but lets say in my household 15m cable from another room crossing the living room is not acceptable  ;)

Is there any acceptable way to have a WLAN connection that is not THAT noisy to the ControlPC?

So far I use an Fritzbox USB-WLAN-Stick.

I am fine if that requires some more investment (not too much please).

Looked here but I didn't find any recommendation except for "7 ways to improve sound quality of streaming services" from Marcin which recommends not to use WLAN.


I am using Minim-Server as Server for the music on the local SSD inside of the Control PC. Kazoo for controling Minim Server + JPlayService (6.2, since I am still playing around with installations)

I found BubbleDS working with Qobuz on my Control Point (Samsung Tablet), although not very stable.


Any help would be appreciated ...

Marcin is right :) Avoid wifi always, too much noise.


Use cable or filtered homeplug -> so homeplug pass through but then you have to filter your mains supply on all the audio supplies.


Hence cable (ethernet) is best, and screened; so cat7 or best to date cat8.


Compare the different connections then you'll hear. Then find a way of running the cable :)
