    That's not how WiFi works, moving the server to 5 GHz will not affect the signal strength to your Touches in any way.
    Your Touches clearly had sufficient connection (signal level and data rate) before the changes you made, otherwise they would have been pretty much unusable with music cutting out at irregular intervals. Any improvement over a level that is "good enough" will make the connection more robust, but it will not make any change to what the Touch receives and hence no change to its output.

    Imagine the sound improvement if he had USB speakers on his computer and went from USB 1 to USB 3.

    Well, toby10's suggestion makes more sense than your 5G one...

    The point is this, I made no comment about anyone's personal level or ability, I even conceded my point with the test results presented by Mnyb. So to make a comment about someone on a personal level (and that was the context of his remark) I returned one in kind. You sound like someone trying to defend Trump, none of my comments were personal in nature, until one was directed at me. In all, if comments remain on topic and not trying to belittle others then flame wars will not cloud the issue at hand.

    Eh? I pointed out that toby10's suggestion, taken at face value, would probably make more of a difference to sound quality than your suggestion. I really fail to see how that could be seen as defending Trump, unless you were projecting and actually subscribing to the whole "fake news" way of rejecting facts.
