    The Smashing Pumpkins ‎– Adore - 2014 reissue. Easily the best reissue of all the Pumpkins albums Corgan did between 2011 and 2014. I understand what Corgan was trying to do with the MONO vinyl release back in 1998 with his Spector-ish wall of...

    The modem always has a single output if it is only a modem (not a one size fits all dual function unit). The modem hooks to the router. Its name tells all, it routes the signal and contains a table of all attached gear down the line, their Mac...

    Guys, my question is still: how can can you better performance using your ISP provider modem/router and your own router and/or switch? I am looking for technical data not subjective (“I can hear it”) stuff. Thanks.

    You're inaccurately mis-characterizing what I said. I DID NOT say that the ER did not sound better when using a good LPS, I said that you don't need one to use it. The two are completely different statements with different meanings. I agree the...

    No, the device provided by the ISP is a modem and a router and most routers have only two ethernet ports. Think of a switch as a type of "power strip" in that it gives you additional ethernet ports in case you have more than two devices that need...

    How much do you want to spend? My thinking is that you are trying to build a system around a component that should not be your top priority. IMO the top priority should be your speakers/room.

    The ISP's call the combination unit's "gateways" and they are routers and modem's in one box sharing one SMPS. With both my ISP's you can go either way but you will get better performance with separates with their modem and your own router.

    Yes because this is a new concept and that's why you feel some kind of opposite qualities. This unit really changes the signal, by passive components, like what an active stage does as usual. In fact, there is also an 1X gain option in the unit...

    Maybe it is semantics. I believe that the “modem” provided by the ISP is also a routers. Your switch(es) connect directly to the “modem” provided by your ISP. So my question still remains unanswered.

    Actually many routers are after market and not provided by the ISP. The only thing that my ISP provides is the modem. I personally use an Asus higher end model router. Exactly

    I am assuming you have a router that has all the ports you need and you are adding a switch to the network because some people think that adding an unnecessary piece of gear in the network will improve the sound.
