  1. Don't worry, ASR's review still has 2nd placement in Google search.
  2. So is a high rez stream that comes from a data center lesser then one that comes from your local NAS?
  3. Anyone know if Tidal, Qobuz, Amazon Music, Apple are using Audiophile SSD's in their servers?
  4. I use y2mate.com so I don't have to install any plugin's. Also most of the plug in's now limit the screen resolution that you can D/L at. Also y2mate allows you to grab just the audio track 😉
  5. It's the usb packet scrubber engine taking a bit more voltage than normal USB cards?
  6. I want to see if any noise is to be had from a network interface transfer with either the inboard NIC or Intel PCI-e NIC and see if my 8 port 1GBe D-Link or one of my Cisco or Aruba switches make a difference in radiated noise.
  7. Alex, when you praise, or denigrate a piece of equipment you seem to toss in something about it's relative price. Just saying....
  8. I still have my EMU 1212 PCI-e sound card. It has 1/4" TRS balanced I/O. I was able to purposefully construct an XLR cable and you could hear HDD or SSD R/W, mouse movement etc... I guess I could try this with some various switches and see if that is going on. I'll have to get an older computer that can take a Windows 7 install as that is the last OS Creative had 100% support for. EDIT ***I ordered a system from NewEgg***
  9. Simon is making a few claims/points. 1. Cisco uses tighter tolerance 25Mhz clocks 2. Enabling IGMP Snooping reduces noise. In a nutshell IF you have client applications that have registered themselves with a address they are registering for a multicast (there are reserved addresses like for OSPF DR/BDR etc...). There is a wiki page for this if you are interested. Unconstrained multi-casts can quickly dominate a subnet, especially large subnets (we typically will do /20 for guest wired and wireless). We control multi-casts and I'd rather RACL and VACL on larger subnet than multiple smaller ones. What happens w/o snooping is the multi-casts will get forwarded out all ports (think about a subnet with 8,000 clients). You will have clients that didn't register for a multi-cast get this traffic and each of these clients will filter / drop. IGMP snooping in a nut shell builds a database of clients and what they are registering for and does the dropping action for the clients. So multi-casts only end up going to registered ports. I certainly recommend the 2960's, I am also a huge fan of the 2390: You get 10GBe SFP+ and you can get the switches for $60. Incredible value. 1st off I recommend Cisco because it's simply well built. I've yet to hear them make an audible difference in my setup. I'd rather spend $60 on a used/refurb Enterprise class edge Cisco than $60 on a new Netgear. Although I've no complaints about all the Netgear GS series I've setup. Bullet proof and reliable as I could have ever wanted. 2nd off IGMP Snooping just isn't much use on a home network. If you have a Cisco switch just issue 'Sh int interface#here' and 'Sh buffers'. You'll find your switch is WAY underutilized, and 0 errors with proper cabling and well behaved NIC's. I setup IGMP v3 and PIM-Sparse in my environment with systems like Get Well for delivering patient informational videos in addition to guest vlan.
  10. Why can't I find a single subjectivist willung to evaluate blind?
  11. No one is debating the point you are making here. It's ok to have preference. When you say it cure's sciatica, well we are in another ball park then.
