    Re: fidata audio network component

    Well I have already had time to evaluate the Aqvox Switch.

    First of all I did a close listening with my generic D-Link, connected to my PSU Kenneth Lau.

    Then I installed the new Aqvox switch, connected to the same PSU Kenneth Lau.
    Right away, there is a noticeable decrease in "digital stress".
    The masses of violins in an orchestra in the sharpest registers, which are almost always problematic because of their tendency to sound a little unpleasant, are softened without losing any definition.
    The bass is a little more pronounced and controlled. It increases the "wingspan" of the orchestra and its weight. Well for 400 € a fantastic update.

    Now I removed my PSU and put the original switched, which brings the Aqvox and insist that it is the one that is put with the switch. It's this better ......... I'm afraid not. It is much worse than the PSU Kenneth Lau, certainly not. In fact the difference is not from night to day, and considering that it is a PSU that is worth twice as much as the whole Aqvox, and the difference in size and components, is a great source.

    Re: fidata audio network component

    Good work nonesup, very interesting. So the power supply still makes a difference, which I thought it might. Sounds like this switch is a great upgrade.

    In the set up l am proposing we are going to employ a separate quality modem, router, wireless access point and isolator plus the AQVOX switch. I will keep you updated.

    I have to thank fellow Audio Shark member mfin for helping me find the other network items. Overall I am expecting a massive improvement. Watch this space.

    Nonesup, do you mind if I copy your comments over to the other thread?

    Are you plugging the AQVOX switch straight into your IP hub?

    Hi
    I have no problem in copying it in another forum, but I would like to wait for tomorrow, because I think my opinion on the Power Supplies, can change. I think I gave a hasty opinion, and I'm going to do a slower listening this afternoon and I'll send my conclusions to the forum.

    Re: fidata audio network component

    Hi.
    Yesterday after uploading the post of the Aqvox, I kept listening to music and I realized something that I had not taken into account and that today I could verify.

    The Music is more dynamic with LPSU ........... yes
    The bass is better with LPSU .............................. yes
    There is more micro information with LPSU ............. yes
    The music is more "natural" with LPSU ............. No.

    Now I would like the best of both Power Supplies and can not be, you have to choose.
    Probably on non-aggressive recordings I would opt for LPSU otherwise I would not.

    Interesting, thanks for posting your findings.

    I will test some new PS when the AQVOX switch arrives and post findings. Nonesup, are you using a separate modem,isolator and router?

    Re: fidata audio network component

    AQVOX review.

    We are using the standard ps which comes with the switch at this time. I concur with nonesup's findings. Less noise more music. More natural timbre and greater openness.

    To use you simply plug a LAN cable into your hub and plug the other end into the switch. And then another LAN cable goes to your equipment, which is fidata in my case.

    Aqvox only sell direct at the moment but if there is anybody in the U.K. interested in a demo of the differences between using the AQVOX switch and the IP hub as a switch let me know by PM.

    If you are aiming for the highest possible digital audio sound source then you have to have one of these switches.

    Next possible upgrade is to use separate router and modem.

    Re: fidata audio network component

    AQVOX are introducing a higher spec switch with better reclocking etc.

    I am currently testing out some other power supplies with the switch and will post my findings.
