    Re: Ethernet switch box

    Exactly. Thank you Jack, you took the words right out of my mouth :). It is always better using your own after market router.

    Re: Ethernet switch box

    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.

    Re: Ethernet switch box

    No I cannot because I am not familiar with any. The point I was making is if they make audiophile grade switches I assume they must make audiophile grade routers also.

    Also, this is not an area...

    That is my exact point. Thank you MEP.

    Any perceived advantages will be lost by adding additional unnecessary equipment. The only advantage I can see is if you are already needing/using a...

    Re: Ethernet switch box

    I think he might be referring to coming off the router. The main reason for a switch is additional ports. Most any router will have more than two Ethernet ports. A network requires a router but...

    Hmmmm... Never tried that... I guess I simply assumed that if audio files were not travelling through the network then the occasional Roon traffic would not be an issue.

    Re: Opinions on tubes for my Hattor

    It is just a solid top.

    Researching a little on the caps (I'm sure my term is wrong) it appears as if they are really mainly for restraining the tubes. Probably does not hurt on or off, but I...

    Hehe, of course I understand that we don't drive the market but I was just pointing out that I believe the charts would be vastly different for the audiophile end. We are in a thread on an...

    Thanks for the input. Doing a little research I do see several mentions of RCA clear tops. If I am recalling correct they were not crazy expensive either. Upscale has some Brimar NOS tubes that he...
