Airport sq concern


 Share

Recommended Posts

I seem to remember some past user comments to the effect that music transferred over a network wirelessly is slightly degraded in the process compared to wired connections.

I, like many here, am considering adding a NAS for music files and using my laptop in another room to access iTunes, but I listen critically--this is not merely for background music. Comments, please

Hi coot - You have nothing to worry about using a NAS device. Network disk has no sonic impact at all. I'm not a fan of any of the current wireless transports, but that is not to say wireless is the key factor. I think the devices themselves are far from high-end (Airport Express, Squeezebox, etc...)

 

So, bottom line is get a NAS you'll love it. I use the Thecus 5200B Pro.

Hi coot - Wireless or wired, when you pull data from a NAS drive it has no sonic impact unless your network is bad and you suffer dropouts. I've routed my NAS drive through an Airport Express via wireless to a music server and had no issues.
