However, once you get better switches down the road, there'll be a flip - this bridge is potentially going to be a bottle neck.

Almost worth writing a blog article on this. Just not too sure where/how to begin as there're so many topics to cover. 


Thanks a lot, I will wait maybe 1 or 2 weeks before testing this solution, because I am not used to the sound right now. It sound really really good with this configuration, so just to be sure to not dowgrade my situation.

For the switch, I use a netgear GS108 with ifi ipower 12v PSU (with Active Noise Cancellation). 

So, in your opinion, when Innuos (the Zenith mkII music server use the same motherboard) say :«Ultra-low Noise Streamer Output
Dual-ethernet ports with isolation transformers on Ethernet ports significantly improve sound quality on streamers when compared to a direct router connection.»It because they test on a switch or a rooter with a noisy SMPS? Or they have tweak the thing with an another solution...

So, I'll get back to you with my impressions of the bridge !

Thank again and good morning Wink here it good night  !

If you like Snakeoil, do try and leave a testimonal, and also let all your friends know about it. Smile

Personal opinion really, but I don't like Netgear switch. Tongue

It's really hard to say. There are too many variables involved. Hence Snakeoil - we provide you everything we can think of that influences the sound, and you apply them and find the best fit.

Whatever solution Innuos comes up with, it'll only fir in their sound room/test lab, etc. That may or may not apply at your place.

Of course for the Testimonal and my friends, and on others HIFI forum Smile

For the Netgear, why you don't like it ? What is your suggestion Smile In the Linn community (the "RIP" Linn forum and on Lejonklou for example) the Netgear 108 make consensus.

For the bridge, I had cannot wait no longer, so I just finishing to setup and it work :-). 

And for the sound, it seem more warm and less clinical, but the bass seem a bit less tight. Anyway, I need to test this for some days and back to my previous setup to see really the difference between the two.

Thank again, and good morning again !

Stay tune !

Good question. I don't know yet what switch to recommend, yet. Hopefully in time I wll know more. As to why I don't like netgear, not entirely sure who to blame, it's either netgear or cisco.. The two just don't interoperate well with each other.
