Hey @zoom25, if you are really that worried about electrical noise from your music storage, you should consider removing all of it/them and switch to a NAS device, like an inexpensive WD MyCloud. Ethernet has galvanic isolation built-in and that should be end-game for what you seek.
Food for thought...
Hmmm, I'm not really worried about electrical noise, far from it. I used to think USB plugged in was about the best you could do. So at this point, it's just how far I can take it at a reasonable price.
The power line adapters were crap. They are out completely. Unfortunately, the room is too far to run ethernet from router. Even if I could, I've still heard that the galvanic isolation doesn't solve all of the problems. So I do have an idea in mind. I'm waiting for the upcoming Bryston Wifi USB dongle. That way I don't need to worry about USB hard drives or media storage at all. The USB drives attached to the router or a dedicated NAS will be in another room.
There's three ways I'm thinking so far:
1) Plug the Dongle into BDP-1 USB port directly.
2) Same as above but with a Jitterbug in the middle.
3) Plug the Dongle into a USB hub with nothing connected to it and on the output cable to the BDP-1, throw a Jitterbug then. Maybe a LPS for the hub.
I already have the hub and an additional Jitterbug to mess around with. I'll try the 3 settings and see where that takes me and if I want to invest in a LPS for the hub. If I pursue it, the LPS for the hub will be the absolute last thing I will get to push the BDP-1's maximum performance. No more after that. It's already so far ahead of the other computers that I have and the previous BDP-1 configurations I've used. It's almost just for academics at this point.
Overall, the priority isn't that high on the list. I'm far more concerned with getting internet connection again to the BDP-1. I want to try out the Sounirok app that's been sitting for over a month without use. Chill out with internet radio once in a while.
James or Chris, has there been any updates on the USB dongle? Pricing or availability?
