    Re: GigaFoil v4 Inline Ethernet Filter

    What is the relative contribution of the GigaFoil unit, the power supply, and the upgraded Ethernet cable going from the GigaFoil unit to the streamer?

    Thank you

    Re: GigaFoil v4 Inline Ethernet Filter

    The upgraded power supply gives the GigaFoil upgraded performance which removes 99.9% of noise in the line and from there offer the best cable to deliver the cleanest signal to the DAC. At least that's how I understand it.

    I received the Keces P3 yesterday and only had a little time to listen last night. Immediately I noticed a lower noise floor again, not a blacker background that depends on the recording IMO, but more depth into each note adding more air. It's an unexpected yet impressive improvement. I'm still using the Transparent cable until the others arrive.

Each of these two devices has an Entreq Eartha Apollo Infinity RJ45 cable and goes to an Entreq Silver Minimus box. The connection between these two devices is made by an AQ Diamond cable.
    Now from the Router comes a Cinnamon AQ cable that goes through the wall to the living room, where is the Aqvox Switch. This is powered by a second LPSU of Kenneth Lau, which in turn is powered by a Shunyata Alpha NR cable that goes to a Shunyata Denali socket. From the Aqvox comes an Entreq Eartha Olympus Infinity RJ45 cable, which goes to an Olympus Minimus box (next week I'll exchange it for an Olympus Infinity).
    As my LPSU Kenneth Lau has the floating output, in the connector that enters the Aqvox is joined another connector of a cable Entreq Eartha Apollo Infinity with a Schuko false connector that goes to the wall and puts the Aqvox to ground.

    Ken, on other threads we have gone around about the Roon Nook vs a better server. If you can hear an improvement by adding a better PS to your Nook, can you see why I advocate a better server than a Nook.

    If you use direct Ethernet connection to the DAC, PS to the server running Roon Core is irrelevant.

    When ken has a chance he can disconnect the LPS from the nuc and see if he hears a difference. I'm truly interested to know

    The P8 on the Nucleus made a big difference for me.

    Re: GigaFoil v4 Inline Ethernet Filter

    FWIW, i have read up a bit on the latest Nooks and they seem to be paying attention to good design. I still dont think it's a Innuos Statement. But it does look to be well designed and quiet.
