RE: Nas and ethernet switch
I find the blacks are extra inky-black with really expensive cat8 ethernet cables with platinum/rhodium plugs Tongue

Rega RP6/Exact, Devialet 200, Raidho C-1.1 speakers, fancy cables and strange wooden grounding boxes.

You mean you don't use the diamond encrusted cables yet? Tongue

Nas and ethernet switch
I just upgrade my NAS from a ReadyNAS Duo to the new version 2 model. Much faster at reading my music library, but sounds the same. I used the same drives from the old NAS so maybe this is where I went wrong. Maybe I should have done and A - B comparison before I swapped both drives over. Guess I will never know!

DS + amp + Speakers = Deep Joy.

RE: Nas and ethernet switch
The answers in this thread is embarrassing.

The network installation can have some impact on the performance of a network player system. One can be lucky and get it fairly right from the start, but if unlucky, espesially if using non recommended components one may not get full performance from there setup. See this thread for some further information.

Yes the difference is, if it plays or not.

Ethernet is a fail save and bit true protocoll, data is there or not. If it is there, you have absolutely no impact on the sound.

Get you a nice DS, a nice amplifier and some nice speakers, just listen to some good music and never worry about switches, wires and snake oil again.

Actually, it is your post that is embarrassing. Your post in the other thread you linked to is even more embarrassing as it is utter nonsense and thus not possible to argue against. And please don't reference Lejonklou forums where people are comparing SSD vs regular hard-drive using the "tune method".

Ethernet does not guarantee delivery. TCP/IP that the DS uses guarantees delivery by re-transmitting lost packets.
