    The break-in goes through a bit of downturn before getting better IME. I lost track of hours but probably over 150 hr. It’s now even better than the last time I reported. More focus and clarity with a sense of ease. About 3 days ago it was that relentlessness that you usually get with some component break-in.

    Same experience here as well.

    I’ve concluded ER is quite good and worthwhile add to any system that streams music. It responds well to aftermarket LPS. It also works very well using in conjunction with Gigafoil. This leads me to question if there’s additional benefit to be had to use in series with more than one ER. For example, ER > ER > Gigafoil > DAC. SOTM reportedly claims daisy-chained SOTM 10G switches are better than one.

    Some people have tested daisy-chained ERs and did not like the results.

    That is correct. Comes on full song by 200 hours.

    No, I don't think so. Some folks, including a good friend, have reported that ER sounds even better when using the Uptone Audio LPS-1.2 power supply over the stock, supplied one. Gonna try this today.

    IME, using a quality LPS and cables did their job in adding performance to etherREGEN.

    After more break-in, there’s more improvement and I can now say EtherRegen is quite good. It’s a must-have even if you already have a Gigafoil, which you can daisy chain with. If you stream music, it’s a must-try in your system, given its relatively low price.

    Note: non-streamers can continue to regard this as snake oil and should look elsewhere.
