In addition, I would say that a better wifi router with an LPS gives better results for the sound quality.
 

First I had a netgear R7000 from 2014, which I later fitted with a Farad super3 with all options and copper level2 DC cable. Both brought an improvement.

 

I have now tried the XR-500 with the same Farad super3 and that was definitely another improvement.

 

Then I now have the XR1000, again with the same Farad super3 and that improvement in sound quality is better than the previous ones, is really worth recommending.

 

And that with 2x etherregen with afterdark eva and with farads super 3 etc. after these wifi router !!!
 

I haven't tried the XR700 because I don't use the SFP+ and it's 19V and the others are all 12V.
