A solid network is the backbone of a streaming system. It is extremely important to have the right networking gear to ensure stable performance and the best sound quality from Lightning devices.
Our testing has identified several routers that generally work well with our products.

A UPnP streaming system requires a much higher home networking standard than many other household uses.
Modem/Routers from internet service providers may work but will may cause reliability problems regardless of download speed.
