@erik_squires  lots of scams in the industry, MQA being one of them, audiophile Ethernet another. Yet people want to believe it and therefore believe it.

I would start small with a blue node like mentioned above, just don’t waste your money on expensive Ethernet cables and so called audiophile Ethernet products, they don’t work. what you may want to consider since you are using tubes, is to move y...

@agisthos since you or someone else flagged my post, which I have no idea why. He literally says he benched the audiophile cables and got an upgrade, so not acknowledging that is dishonest  So, I benched all the Cat7-8 Wirewold/Nordost and Audio...

@jerryg123 perhaps you should read again ?     So, I benched all the Cat7-8 Wirewold/Nordost and Audioquest Diamond stuff and replaced them with high quality unshielded Cat 5 cables and got a nice upgrade in sound quality Literally says he rem...

@agisthos lol. You calling others with knowledge people of “limited theoretical understanding” is hilarious. You posted something that was patently false, proven over and over again.    I can guarantee I know more about Ethernet and the related p...

@agisthos  Here is my theory that squares things with the network packet objectivists. The upstream network gear has various high frequency oscillators and pcb design approach that creates noise that rides down the chain via ground, shielding...

@sns Don't know who that is, but happy to read and learn, if you have any links.  Jitter matters a lot in the ADC DAC processes, however, network jitter is not relevant for this.

@jerryg123 i guess you missed Nordost, AQ and Wireworld?    Doesnt really matter, lots of noise and issue, Ethernet had nothing to do with it. 😂  
Audiphile Press: Am I jaded, experienced, or has it declined?
I mainly read reviews now to see what music they use, and sometimes it is music I like to be added to my library. like Jeff said, European press is better, so I always pick up magazine when I travel.

@coppy777  always comes down to that huh? Why? My system is plenty resolving and perfect for my residence.   That’s not the issue you describe, you has a real audible issue that by your own statements none of these “audiophile” Ethernet products...

@jerryg123   why I try to educate people? Because it helps some. I have received several direct messages saying something along the lines of “thank you, I thought I was going crazy with all these Ethernet “upgrades”. that are supposed to do som...

@jerryg123 of course you think that. He puts up facts that doesn’t work with your world view. But that is a you problem.   no, clocking on Ethernet makes no difference. That thread you just posted was someone testing an Ethernet cable as if it w...

This is a dissection of one Ethernet “audiophile” product:
