Got wireless working on the BDP-1 with a USB adapter from another device.
The instructions on the website worked. I did have to restart the BDP a second time before I could find my home network on the select down menu.
It's up and working. Will be testing it out with Roon. I do have a spare Audioquest Jitterbug laying around which I may consider adding down the road. Right now using as is. I'll be comparing it to my local closed ethernet setup which is powered with a LPS for the network switch and an assortment of Cat 6 UTP and Cat 6a S/STP shielded cables. I have the shielded cables in an assortment of grounding methods (Floating shields on both ends, one end etc.).
Before this, I actually did try something else which was using a bridged connection to connect ethernet directly from the Macbook Pro to the BDP-1 without any router or switch in between. I think Antipodes recommends that as well due to something about comms layer. FWIW.
Right now, I'm listening with Roon and Wifi adapter with nothing else plugged into the BDP-1.
As far as SQ is concerned, early impressions seem to be very positive! Perhaps better timing and/or clarity. It sounded great right off the bat. Involving. Reminds me of when I first brought in the Torus. The hash disappears and initially you feel as if the sound is drier but being more clear and 100% more engaging.
It just might come out ahead of all the combinations I've had with ethernet including MPD with flash drives straight. Let's see if that changes. The only thing I'm worried about on my end is wifi stability. Had some dropouts in between as the router is placed quite far from the room. Still, stable for the most part.
