Re: MQN

well 5 years later and I thought all noise would have been removed and digital music would all be perfect by now, but seems the same challenges persist and there seems to be more people willing to experiment as everything matters eg use of FMC on ethernet etc The forum seems quiet, hope you're all ok.
