Article: SOtM sNH-10G Network Switch Review

Recommended Posts

This is/was an interesting read, albeit painful at times given the demeanor.  Unfortunate, really, for those legitimately trying to learn.

 

Because I honestly don't know, can someone confirm whether or not ethernet cables/switches/connections are naturally susceptible to both RF and or ground loop issues?

And sorry, I mean this as a legitimate question as well...this entire group does agree that as an electrical device, the switch's power supply and such could introduce electrical noise of sorts into a sensitive and transparent sound system?  I lost the plot a bit on whether that was being debated at all here in these 11 pages?

You don’t need 11 pages to know something that is obvious and certain unless ..... ;)

Hello,

I have a 10G switch powered by the 500 psu. I have 3 items plugged into the 10G which are Streamer/DAC, NAS and router/modem are plugged in and it works flawlessly.

I am so impressed I am getting a second 10G/500 combo connected in series as suggested by SoTM.

Where do i plug in my my 3 devices ?

Thank you in advance.

Unless I missed it (quite possible), I haven't read any listener reports that have compared a stock SOtM sNH-10G (no upgrades at all) at $800 to an Uptone Etherregen at $640.  I would be very interested in reading about such a comparison.

That's good to know.  Looking forward to reading about it.
