  1. The EtherREGEN thread for various network, cable, power experiences and experiments
    The EtherREGEN thread for various network, cable, power experiences and experiments

    In the Taiko Audio SGM Extreme thread on WBF, Emile from Taiko had recommended some fiber products that were found to work well the Extreme server.  A friend had installed these over the weekend, and reported being delighted with the results.  He doesn't yet have an ER, so I wasn't sure how well his results would transfer over to my situation.  Nonetheless, I took the plunge and ordered two Startech SFPs, a Startech FMC, and a run of fiber.  This would replace a 7m run of Wireworld Chroma from wall to the ER.

     

    Right out of the box, there were very obvious improvements in clarity and ease.  Quantity of bass increased too - and maybe a slight hard edge was added.  In terms of the hard edge, hopefully some burn-in helps reduce that.  It should be noted that I'm using the stock SMPS with the StarTech FMC so that's less ideal, but it's plugged into a different circuit from the rest of my audio system.  On the plus side, the improved clarity has been taking my breath away.

     

    The obvious takeaway for me here is that the cabling that feeds the ER can still matter.   I will be sticking with the fiber for the time being but plan to see what kind of improvement might come from using the Sonore opticalModule in place of the Startech FMC.  

     

    These are the parts I used:

     

    SFP:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0747WZ8LZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

     

    Fiber: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0099S4WYE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

     

    FMC:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B011KH1O1U/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1

     

    Note:  I believe Emile might have actually recommended the "chassis mount" FMC variant that follows.  This wasn't immediately available at Amazon so I chose the "no chassis" variant.  I'm not sure how much this matters.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FWJMTXU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

     

    Hat tip to @zettelsm for taking the lead on this.

    So my question, in this setup (farad to etherregen) what would be the better option out of these three; the higher gauge Canare 4s6 JSSG360, the Gotham GAC4/1 UltraPro JSSG360 or Farad's own option using lots of thin, tin plated copper wire?

     

    Audio Sensibility Signature Silver > Farad Level 2 > the other two options you mention.  Big delta between AS Signature Silver and Farad Level 2.

    Has anyone tried the Keces P8 with the Sonictransporter i7?
