Audio over cat5e cable in whole-home audio?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm looking to add an outboard DAC to take advantage of my better 16/44.1 recordings, and maybe branch into 24/96 or 24/192. My distributed home-audio system will eventually use a Mac mini -> rDAC -> Nuvo Essentia. My main question is that based on the wiring in my house, the signal frequently runs over cat5 wire, and in two zones it goes nuvo -> RCA -> balun ->in-wall cat5 -> balun -> RCA ->amplifier. Will all this switching degrade the sound quality a significant amount? Thanks for the feedback!
