Description

Switches… …yeah. Now, what are we supposed to say about this? It’s part of the data supply for the streamer in many cases. But if the data arrives correctly – which is just the case with a standard switch – what could go wrong? That’s what we were wondering.

Noise

It turns out that network cables and switches still have an influence on the sound. There is no need to search erros in data. In the noise over the network you can find some issues.

It turns out that the power supply is a source of the problem in a standard-switch. Good galvanic disconnection and a good, clean power supply do wonders. And a solid, well shielded network cable too.

In short: here too there is profit to be made.
