    GigaFoil v4 Inline Ethernet Filter

    Suncoast Audio is now a reseller of the GigaFoil v4 Inline Ethernet Filter. We have been testing one out in the store for a few weeks and the improvements are not subtle. The GigaFoil removes all the noise from the line and improves a variety of areas sonically. Much more natural, more transparent, better microdetail retrieval, etc.

    A review of the GigaFoil V4 can be found here:

    MSRP is $570 including shipping. Contact me if you would like to order one.

    Iíve had mine for several months and itís amazing. All noise is removed off the line. This improves transparency, dynamics and soundstage. There are no downsides. Put your best Ethernet cable between the Filter and your DAC and youíll be amazed by what you hear (or donít hear).

    Best,

    Interesting. I wonder how it would compare to SOTM 10G switch (via fiber to some TP link receiver).

    Just to add, I will be able to add the iFi iPower for anyone who wants one for the GigaFoil. Highly recommended.

    Where in the chain did you place the unit? Just before the MSB's or Lumin's ethernet input? Did you then insert a AQ ethernet between the GigaFoil device and the DAC/Renderer?

    Ethernet cable from wall to GigaFoil to AQ Diamond Ethernet to MSB Select II Roon Renderer module.

    Thanks. That is what I figured.

    By any chance did you try it with a more standard connection between the Gigafoil and Renderer? Actually this device would allow me to insert a "quality" ethernet cable after my long run of ethernet cable from my switch upstairs to the connection on my Upsampler.

    Yes. The diamond is worth it. More details and transparency. Itís getting fed a clean signal and really shines.

    Hi Jim,

    I have 5 high-end Ethernet cables in my network and my GigaFoilv4 Ethernet Filter also resides just before my Select II DAC’s Renderer Input Module. I did some A/B comparisons with some low cost Blue Jean Ethernet cables and the high-end Ethernet cable located between the GigaFoilv4 and the Renderer Input Module by far has the greatest impact on the sound quality. That’s where you want to spend your money. A long run of a lower cost Ethernet cable elsewhere in the network has little impact on the overall sound quality.

    Best,
    Ken
