    Hi Stelvio

    Our Quality Assurance Team are big fans of Ubiquiti and uses it in their lab. It won't solve VLANs though because multicast does not route through VLANs.

    Thanks Tony!  That's about the best answer possible.  Using the same networking gear as the testing team has got to make life easier if I'm having issues.  They'll be familiar with the gear and the settings required to make it play nice.

    Any input from users in the wild would also be welcome.  Ubiquity seems to slot neatly between consumer level and proper enterprise.

    Hi Stelvio,

    FYI - I'm using Ubiquiti Unifi equipment (USG, 8 and 16-port USW Lite PoE switches, Unifi AP's) and it works with my NAD C368 with MDC BluOS 2i. I run UTP cables to key devices, such as the NAD (±15m). All in the same VLAN.

    I did have one or two hiccups initially, but believe this was down to cabling: the 16-port USW in particular seems sensitive to proper cabling/connectors.

    The BluOS 2i module connects at 100Mbps 'only', and I suspect it is not 10/100/1000Base-T. I could not find out from the specs. Not that it needs more bandwidth, but does anyone know if it should support a 1000Base-T connection?

    A belated thanks for the confirmation JosBaz.

    I've proceeded with the Unifi purchase and should be receiving it in the coming days.  Is there anything specific I should enable/disable/etc when setting it up to best suit the Bluesound gear?  From the limited settings on my old router I recall that multicast = on and IGMP snooping = off but that was it.

    In between time I had installed a GLiNet Slade Slade router and it worked perfectly out of the box, no issues with the Bluesound gear at all.  The rest of my network including switches and APs did not change though.  I set static IP's for the BS devices but they also worked fine before that.
