Ethernet connection quandary
Going to be getting a Marantz CR603 in the next couple of weeks (early Xmas pressie to myself ). I'm considering the ethernet connection which will I will have to provide to utilise the Internet Radio function.
Option 1 - make up a cable, not an issue as I can get the cable, connectors and crimp tool from work and tailor make my own. Problem is the router. though in the same room, is diagonally opposite where the 603 will be. So there are 2 walls to run, and hide, the cable around. The fireplace is not much of a problem as I can remove the hearth to put the cable behind it. It's just all a bit awkward though.
Option 2 - use Homeplugs. The only issue I see here is that 2 mains sockets will be used. Not normally a problem but the Xmas lights she will want up will put sockets at a premium.
Anyway, I don't know much about Homeplugs so is anyone else using them for this sort of application?
