    There is another configuration I may try, which is to put ER in the bedroom study, use it "turned around" as a switch/FMC then run the fiber to the Optical Module in the main rack.

    However, I think the first config will be better as its my hypothesis as ER has better clocks than OM.
    We shall see. My concern is people buying a switch when they donít currently use a switch. The best kind of switch is no switch.

    Absolutely. In my case, though, I do need a switch, as I have to network my router, Mac Mini and SOtM all together via some form of Ethernet, either copper or optical, or a combination thereof.

    Historically, I've been using the four RJ45 jacks in my router for these "switch" connections, but I could use ER for this, or ER in conjunction with an external switch.

    So, at the end of the day, I still need some way to get a "hardwired" LAN connection from my bedroom/study down to my network bridge in the living room. I've been using optical with two FMCs (one a generic one, and the other, an Optical Module aka OM) for this since its considerably easier (and better, and quieter) than doing this with copper Ethernet. I could use another, second, Optical Module, so I had one at both ends, to do this, but this would also require yet another Uptone LPS-1.2 power supply for $435, so its cheaper to use ER than using a second OM. Moreover, ER is more flexible, as I can also experiment with using ER as an actual" switch if that config works better than using it as an FMC."

    Something to think about is your Gigafoil. UpTone does not want to see this in between the etherREGEN and your DAC.

    I am not sure what it will do before it, if even needed after this.

    Your Keces can power it, but they said that itís not needed.

    I donít know the voltage and amps but it is a 2.1 connector

    Re: EtherREGEN on the way!

    Ed, are you referring to Daryl having a gigafoil?

    It will be interesting what you hear, or myself. I think my switch has the same clocks as the ER. As well as other updated parts and LPS. You have a pretty extensive array of audio quality ethernet gear. Anyhow, I was partly suspect of the gigafoil for the exact reason ER says there switch is great. What clocks and converter etc are in the gigafoil. I could understand the concept of isolation. What I did not see in the giafoil was premium ethernet clocking. I assume that and good isolation as well as correct grounding is the key to the Uptone ER.

    FWIM. A lot of what Pumma notes I heard when I installed my Linear Solution switch. It was a large step over a regular netgear switch with a LPS feeding it. You heard the same with your Aqvox.

    This stuff is like piecing together a puzzle. Everything has its place. I plan on holding off on any new additions until next year. Shipping any new units from ER won't be until then anyway. And I can use you a sounding board for system changes.

    I thought I was getting the Symphony ADDPowR this past Saturday to go along with the ElectraClear module. The Cardas Clear Beyond 2.5m showed up instead. So, I have had a few days listening to the ElectraClear and power cord in my system. I really like what Cardas brings to my system. And with the ELectraClear adding more detailed energy I got to say I'm liking what I have even more. Yesterday was a holiday so I'm thinking the Symphony will show up today. I'm curious as to what if any improvements can come.

    Darrel,

    What is an ElectraClear module?

    Thanks.

    The term "module" is from the instructions on the ElectraClear. It states "Plug the module into any wall socket, or power strip." Sorry if I caused some confusion.

    Look here. I have a symphony and 2 electraclear. One of the best fairly inexpensive adds to my system.

    Is this what you bought?
