    Re: Ethernet switch box

    There are no PUBLISHED measurements but that does not mean that John Swenson does not have them. These are completely different things.

    As for threshold jitter, you can read what that is here:...

    Re: Ethernet switch box

    They're 6SN7GTs from Psvane. I don't know why they are blue. The DAC sounds fabulous, though.

    Yeah, the JS2 LPS is an excellent linear power supply; BTW, the JS stands for John Swenson, who also designed EtherREGEN (and Sonore's products). You can also use it to power a Mac Mini with their...

    I'm not paid for my photography. I do it strictly for fun to develop my technical skills. Thus, I don't "work" for any of these companies. Can we move on, now?

    Hi Mike, no, I don't have any measurement equipment here. And I'm not in the test and measurement business, either.

    Don't get me started with ASR. They don't even do MSAs on their measurement system.

    In fact, my guess is they wouldn't even know an MSA if it smacked them in the face.

    Just in the interests of accuracy here, the UpTone Audio is not a modified switch, it is a ground-up bespoke design by John Swenson.

    A Melco S100 is a good switch, but...it's 2200 bucks.

    An UpTone Audio EtherREGEN is a much better value at almost 1/4 the price: $640. And you don't need to pop for an external linear power supply...
