The Harting 3050GB-A is profesional switch,, and far better than netgear cisco, and than the called audiophiles.
That sounds interesting but do you you have any clips to substantiate your claims Germanchu. Its a belief system free zone here :0)

Re: HAKAI playground

On initial listening I preferred clip 2 to 1 immediately, when I got to clip 3 I couldn't say clip 3 was better than clip 2.. I find the guitar sings more in clip 2..so I'd have to go with 2. I wish I didn't know what I was listening to though

Re: The Mighty AT95E Becomes The AT-VM95E

Hi Ron. Thanks for your elaborate reply! The AT95e was bought about 3-4 years ago. I believe I’ve put around 20-25 hours on it (holidays). The vm95c didn’t get anywhere near the 18 hours so i need to give it more time to settle. I installed it, played a lot of music and fiddled with the screw torqu...

Re: HAKAI playground

Clip A was the Tinker Board S with Volumio playing from the on board SSD. As I prepared it for play part of me hoped it would sound terrible but it didn't. In my view it's pure luck that the board sounds good despite being compromised by the on board SSD and the micro USB power supply. In the next ...

I used a Tinker Board S, flashed it with Volumio not the Primo. Clip B was the Hakai.
