My experience is that i2s is by far the best, and materially better than, other connections on the DSD.

Since Roon Core is the media server software do you mean Roon Nucleus.

Any suggestions on Roon/iOS fixes or alternatives?



Thanks!


What are you using for Internet Connection? Wifi? Router? NAS? CAT 5?

It’s all connected via CAT 5E. Both the PC server and Bridge II directly to the router. My router is the standard Fios cable modem router combo. I gather this can be significantly improved upon.

It may be the router can you replace with a new one? I found that the supplied company router had issues, jitter and needing resets. Went with new AirPort Extreme, main router connected to cable modem and where my setup is an Airport Express (latest) then connected via CAT5 to system.

Don't skimp on a router. A quality reliable router is vital and look for one that updates their firmware regularly. I've had good experience with top Asus routers.
