Just received my new Node 2i. I purchased it to connect the BS System to my main listening system in my basement (have a single floor ranch home with a full basement).
Got it all connected and working. Have a signal strength of "Good" (green).
The other Node 2 I have is located on the main floor of the house (at the farthest end of the house from the modem) and when I installed it I had to purchase a Wi-Fi extender (could not get a good enough signal so it is sitting right next to the extender and it has a signal level of "Best" (Blue).
The main modem is pretty much right above where I have the new Node 2i. Approx 12 ft away.(straight up) The only obstruction between the two is the main wood floor and a suspended ceiling in the basement.
Now to my question......Is it worth going to the trouble (and expense) of trying to get a "Best" or Blue colored signal? Would the quality of the audio signal be that much better? Sounds pretty good now. The only other way to get a "Best" or Blue signal I would assume is to purchase another Wi-Fi extender for the basement room or run a Cat 5 or 6 cable directly to the modem.
Any advice would be appreciated.
