Getting ready to move, so thought I would pull out my Ethernet cable today and move my Pi/Beocreate Roon endpoint to a wireless platform. I was pleasantly surprised to hear a noticeable change in the music. Tauter bass lines, sweeter highs, and an overall smoother presentation with the same detail. I had always thought Ethernet was the best but in doing a little research it seems long lengths of cable, even shielded, can pick up interference and add jitter.

I was running a 9 mtr cheapo cable and then switched to Supra Cat 8 when I owned the Sonore Micro Rendu. I didn't hear much difference though I didn't want to invest further into the Ethernet cables. Some claim better resolution with high end cables but unfortunately my ears didn't pick it up, in my environment.

I would say that's not unfortunate. Some rabbit holes are best left unexplored.

So you are saying that converting the signal to RF and back again from RF improved the sound ? This does not seem logical but it does seem possible . It could have been a very inferior ethernet cable .
