hey all, i just started using a unitiqute. it is hardwired (ethernet) to the router which is hardwired to my laptop which is hooked via usb to external harddisk which has my flac library.
so what are the things i can tweak for SQ?
1. nas. is a nas certain to be better for sq than a hard disk hooked up to a computer?
2. ethernet cables. i saw chord company has some of these. anybody tried that?
3. since i can control the music through the naim app, i dont need a computer with a screen. any benefit in using raspberry pi or intel nuc? lesser interference, traffic, jitter etc?
4. is there an audiophile router or rather a router more suited by its features for streaming music?
5. i am currently using asset upnp. is there anything better than this?
Anything else?
Appreciate the insights.
