Based on my incomplete understanding of the theories behind these stuff, I speculate that the degradation might be negligible.

    Peter,

    If all the audiophile switch does is reduce noise, then I agree with you.

    Re: GigaFoil v4 Inline Ethernet Filter

    In addition to lower noise, the audiophile switch also uses a good clock with low jitter for the network data packets (let's ignore the debate of whether this can improve SQ and assume it does anyway), but I suspect this benefit may be largely reduced because the conversion to optical then back to copper (for noise elimination) should affect jitter.

    This is just a speculation. Experimentally anything can happen and SQ is usually system dependent and not deterministic from a single factor.

    I just tried using the foil with only the local router. The result is not as good. Without the switch the inner detail is less, quietness less, and the dynamics are a little less. The switch went back in. I also tried the Sablon and so far like wireworld better. It is brighter and has more sibilants. I will put 120 hours on it and try again. I thought this was broken in already.

    Interesting result with the switch and the gigafoil
