At the risk of exposing my ignorance, I have a wireless router that multiple devices run off, including my PC. One of my players is a Vero 4K+ that I connect via USB with a 4TB portable drive that I update periodically as I add music and concert files. I also have an Oppo in another room that I've used to play music over the network by having it "find" my PC a few times, with not the best results. The router and network are stable, but I don't really like playing files directly from my PC because the settings in Windows to allow file sharing are confusing and counter-intuitive, at least to me.Tell us a little bit more about your current network and how your PC and whether you play back device is on your network. Maybe there’s still a NAS solution without using ethernet everywhere.
The Vero4K+ has wired and wireless connections, so I could use it via wireless if I set things up properly, and, as seems to be the case, there is no drawback to doing so.
