Howdy y'all, I built an audio PC (see specs here) and am using HDPLEX's 200W linear power supply. This is plugged into a Furman PST-8D power conditioner. Question is this: would it be particularly unwise to place an Alexa "Smart Plug" in the middle, for some fun n funky home automation commands with Alexa? Proposed setup is as such: LPS > Smart Plug > PST-8D > (wall outlet) I've invested in this LPS and power conditioner—and all the other components in the PC including a JCAT USB card FEMTO—to optimize for audio quality. Would I be shooting myself in the foot by introducing something like this just for ease of use w/ voice commands? My gut says don't put a $10 piece of tech in between two several hundred dollar pieces of tech, which is why I'm posting this. But this may have no effect at all, which would be nice. Thanks in advance for your help 🙏🏻
Isabelle is plagued by multiple sclerosis ; i.e. I witnessed her failing to type her credit card’s PIN, though she knows it by heart, because of combined vision and motility coordination issues. I guess the solution should involve streaming + vocal command ; on this forum I mainly discussed the charms of rebooting a Mac on Windows (minimum) Server in order to get the best from HQP : I’m not the most savvy when it comes to convenience and hope you will help me help Isabelle building a system. She owns obsolete Android tablet and Windows PC but could afford an iPad or new PC or Mac. She lives alone in an apartment and can’t obviously fight the neighbors ; thus the front part might be decent but in a consistent price range with the fact that speakers and amp won’t have to be able to reproduce forte at 92 dB nor choruses at 94. She lives in France so I’m thinking of Qobuz for the streaming part (she should be able to go from Gould playing Goldberg to Massive Attack or Miles Davis) but maybe there’s a more integrated solution Thank you
