    And the same guys go from forum to forum with the same tired arguments looking for someone to agree with them. We've got one who does the same thing with everything that costs more than BJC is a rip-off. If you don't acknowledge them they eventually go away.

    I setup a switch with vlan 10 and 20 (wired and wifi). Dual homed a server and setup 192.168.10.X/24 and 192.168.20.X/24.

    Created a 10 and 20 named SMB share and mapped drive letter Y/Z. Using 24/192 native tracks with Foobar ABX comparater no one could tell a difference even when I killed the WiFi (20 second buffer).

    I'm trying to make $$ with it. Only done it once so far. I like the people that agree to it initially and then start changing the dates they can do it multiple time and then not doing it at all. Nothing like all talk no walk.

    Here is a good thread on Jitter and static storage. Regardless of the style of static storage (volatile or non-volatile).

    yes. i have 3 of these in my system, one for nas to switch, one for switch to roon core and one from switch to dcs upsampler
    also i use the sfp ports on my switch to plug the converters into it So only one converter per run

    i also use ifi wall warts to power the converters

    For this type of setup, the Fiber Media Converter (FMC) that outputs Ethernet to your DAC should be equipped with a LPS. (Note: iPower is not a LPS.)

    If your DAC has 1000Mbps Ethernet port, a potential matching model might be a pair of TP-Link MC210CS, but you'd need to check with your DAC manufacturer for compatibility. It'd be interesting to know what they say about FMC.

    (In case any Lumin user is reading this post, please note different model of FMC is required for different Lumin models due to different types of Ethernet.)

    That's due to WiFi RFI damaging SQ, but as with any audio debate there are people who do not believe this or think their system is not affected by it.

    In the testing I've done I've yet to see any degradation to SQ via WiFi. Even when I was disabling the WiFi during playback (and playing out of buffer) both on a Cary Audio DMS 500 and a Server / Client Setup feeding an Emotiva DC-1 no one could tell the difference.

    I'm not sure what situation this would be the norm so if you could lay out a setup that can be reproduced.

    Since you work at Lumin: Why isn't there an SFP GBIC module and then the end user can pick what module they want to run. I've a drawer full of Fiber and RJE SFP's.
