Recommendation of router

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Can someone recommend a good quality router? Although  I am going to get Uptone Audio Etheregen, still want some recommendations of router which is reliable and will not harm the audio.

I am not sure there will be any difference in regard to audio aspects of the various routers.  Their main function is to connect your local network to the public network.  As far as reliability, the consumer Netgears are pretty good and the Nighthawk models have plenty of throughput.  I like the ones with built in cable modems as to minimize the boxes and wires and psu's collecting dust and dog hair.  

 

As part of my audiophile affliction, I do plug it into an Isotek Evo 3 Sirius power strip just because I can.

I think having a good quality switch between your router and your audio endpoint is more important than the quality of your router, but I don't have actual experience with swapping in different routers.

Concure with switch recommendation - Netgear GS105 has good reputation here. If you want to make next step, you would get LPSU for switch. It would give an increase in SQ. And, if you want to go further, LPSU for router may work as well.

@Adyc - ubiquiti makes great products, including wired routers:  https://www.ui.com/edgemax/edgerouter-x/

 

the beauty of these is that you can now add the switches and access points you need without the limitations of a typical combo router (router/switch/access point all in one chassis).
