Reducing noise in an Ethernet over power configuration

I don’t have the luxury of a separate Ethernet outlet for streaming so I’m using PoE.  I’ve never been impressed with the sound quality of my EtherRegen feedin my Sonore UltraRendu.  I’m seeing products from iFi Like the silencer + that coul eliminate some of the noise.  Has anyone used one of these products for this type of application? 


You could try iFI silencer and see if it helps. Personally I would avoid PoE at all cost, why add more noise only to remedy afterwards. Instead, try mesh network pods (you need two, one next to router or modem and 2nd receiver near UltraRendu). 

“High quality streamers take care of any shortcomings.”


I beg to differ, check out what Taiko has done lately to eliminate noise from Ethernet….I can’t imagine anyone feeding Taiko off PoE 😳

I had a weird noise in my network.   It went away when I disconnected my TV ethernet cable from my switch 

I actually thought it was a bad tube.  Took them out, tested .   Noise persisted,  I tried another set of tubes.   It was driving me insane.  

Then I started isolating upstream and when I pulled the CAT 8 cable out of the switch the problem went away.   

Someone on this forum mentioned CAT 8's metal shield can cause noise.   They were right.   I just switched over to WiFi but I am going to try a CAT 6 this weekend.   It sounded exactly like a noisey tube , random , come and go and vary in intensity
