I have been playing with different hardware Intel and AMD for the past year and realised if one is using a sfp card on the audiopc it largly makes the hardware irrelavant if one uses the server for streaming only. NO USB and NO ethernet on the PC.
All the differences I hear are now of the software only. Windows or Linux and other softwares that are on it as a dlna server.
Has anyone else experienced this?
The only difference I get are on my endpoint which is ethernet, Emm Labs NS1.
I see a lot of fancy hardware being used but I’m stumped if it isolated by a sfp card to the switch or a router.
My final last mile to my NS1 is where all the differences exist.
Would love the opinions of others here.
Edit: Single mode SFP card and transceivers only.
