Between the SOtM switch and the UpTone Audio one in the works its interesting times for switches. 

 

I currently have the Aqvox SE switch. But I'm more than happy for SOtM or UpTone to give me a dilemma by raising the bar further.

I'm predicting the SOtM switch will be much higher priced.


Main listening (small home office):

Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>CAPS IV Pipeline Server + Sonore 12V PS>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.
 

Secondary Listening: CAPS Pipeline>IFi iOne DAC>Schiit Freya>Kii Three . Also an SBT and a RB Pi 3B+ running piCorePlayer as an SBT emulator. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

Theres a thread over on the General forum discussing some CAers attending. So hopefully they'll report back. 

 

Bit far for me too as I'm in the UK but I am considering Munich High End or a trip across the pond to RMAF one of these years. Won't be this year though due to other commitments.

Hey Firedog, 

 

Yup, based on previous form I'd say that's a safe bet! 

 

Interesting times tho and good to have some competition in this space. 

 

Cheers,

@The Computer Audiophile and @austinpop

 

Chris / Rajiv - didn't want to derail your meet up thread (other than perhaps out of envy since its a bit too far for me to attend ¬¬) but would be great to get your impressions on the new SOtM switch and the sCLK-OCX10 clock. 

 

Cheers, 

Alan

The switch looks smashing! (and expensive...:D)

I wonder if the upcoming product from Uptone, which is 10/100, can work with the gigabit SOtM endpoints?

I don't see why not, we don't need gigabit for audio.

Interesting. Although I'm an UPtone/Sonore person, - I may be tempted because of the SFP modules and the fact that it's gigabit. I am not sure if I want to bail on fiber because of its galvanic isolation.

I ordered the sNH-10G at the local distributor, priced at about 750 USD, expected to arrive in late August.

 

I am very hopeful with the positive results of this switch in setup.

Which options does it include for this price?

Interesting...they aren't taking orders on their website yet.

My first question is whether the optional sCLK-EX board has to be in the sNH-10G itself or whether you can install the SOtM clock connect PCB in the sNH-10G and use available clock points from an sCLK-EX board in another component.  @MayfromSOtM ?  This is how the $300 SOtM switch mod was done.

$800 for the base model

Seems they priced against the AQVOX AQ-Switch SE which costs 798 euros.  

 

I assume you also want a good LPS for this thing.  Anyone know the DC input specs?

Hi rickca, if I understand your question correctly, the optional sCLK-EX installation for sNH-10G means the sCLK-EX board will be installed into the sNH-10G.

 

Thank you.

Best regards, May
