Have a Node 2i. When installed some months ago the ethernet connection sounded slightly better than the wireless connection. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a sudden marked decline in audio quality: no dynamics, fuzzy bass etc. After extensive fault finding I found that the ethernet connection is the problem. Wireless works perfectly but ethernet is severely distorted. I have rebooted wireless router, factory reset the Node 2i, changed LAN cables etc etc. I am quite happy to leave it wireless but can anyone suggest what might be going on? Modem is TPLink VR2800. Sources are primarily Tidal Masters, but also Radio Paradise and Roon local library all show same problem, regardless whether using BluOS app or ROON. I am suspecting an earthing or noise problem on the ethernet connection or a hardware failure of the ethernet interface.
