Note: Please be advised that all HiFi streaming products of this type are dependent on a powerful and stable wireless network, which requires a good router. If you plan to have more than one streaming unit on your network, we recommend wiring as many of the devices as possible to the router for maximum stability. The free routers you get from Internet service providers are often of poor quality and we strongly recommend investing in a good router adapted to these needs. Streaming systems of this type should not be combined with wireless network extenders. Electrocompaniet has full built-in wireless networking capability, but for the sake of stability and audio quality – especially with 24-bit high-resolution music files – you should use a wired connection if possible. You can then be sure to get the optimal musical experience from your Electrocompaniet streaming device.
