Re: Power cords

yes ;) but I thought its better to have a compromise than nothing

nowadays it seems there is either a compromise to take on:
cable length
mm2
Volex Schuko M2511A plug
or even a different cable manufacturer
cable direction

not sure if thats the right order of importance

Re: FRIWO 12 v medical grade PSU for Netgear GS108 switch

Hey Paaf, there are of course FRIWO replacements also for the brick type power supply the TS-109 has. I have replaced mine for the TS119 I have. I am not sure about the rating for your brick wall type for the TS-109 - you need to check if the DT50Medizin (3800mA) is enough or if you need to have the...

Re: Optimal House Wiring

I really appreciate your effort - when you say well burned in what is your experience on how much hours a power cable should have at least to make a comparison.
I know it might change even after 2 weeks burn in but what do you think is it more around 48hours or 72hours or even more?

Interesting, where do you get these? Thx Matt Hi Matthias, I just realised that I didnt really answered your question as there was a message from someone else that you can find them through ebay.

Re: Power cords

managed to find another Tongyuan power cord with text but the issue is it has no Volex plugs but different ones the - wall plug is straight and not 90degree what is more important the wire or the Volex plugs? I am asking because I also found some Longwells but they are all „against text“. I feel the...

Re: Friwo MPP15 - what's fresh

to be honest it was a normal cable which happened to come with it - none of the names mentioned in the power cable discussion
did not worried about it as at that time I couldn't imagine the power cable at the switch could make a difference - maybe it was the cable?

Re: FRIWO 12 v medical grade PSU for Netgear GS108 switch

if you say that leds flash even though there is no cable attached the switch is resynchronising either because of lost of sync or lost of power
there was an issue with GS 108 earlier versions that blow caps in the switch maybe the same caps are also used in the 105

Re: FRIWO 12 v medical grade PSU for Netgear GS108 switch

not sure what it could be - maybe also some loose power conection to the router/switch.
However if its the GS105 making trouble be happy as you would get a nice upgrade if you buy a GS108T with a FRIWO power supply :)

Re: Friwo MPP15 - what's fresh

Hi Tendaberry, I know many love their Cisco switches - I have one too but switched back to GS108T. I think the Cisco sounds impressive in the beginning but seemed to move my system more to the „hot“ side the longer I had it in my system (which is the wrong direction for me). The GS 108T has an elega...

Re: Power cords

just to make sure you dont get me wrong - I am not saying the Hirakawa ones are better than Volex Tongyuan because I just have not tested it. But I came to the same conclusions that there is a certain quality in standard power cords with molded plugs which I didnt expected (the self made cord and th...

yes you are right but the GS108T and the Friwo at the right phase are the best improvement for the money.

Re: Optimizing your DS

this is the way I found out my house seems to be wired wrong as when I use angled power cords I have to put them into the outlet with the cable facing up to have the live wire as you recommend.

Re: FRIWO 12 v medical grade PSU for Netgear GS108 switch

I agree - now with diving deeper into the correct wiring of an IEC socket/plug it seems to be that also my house is wired „wrong“... even though audio industry seems to wire devices also inconsistant.

Seems the more correct setting would be phase/hot/L1 is the right side of the power outlet.

Yes that is right but I would still try if the other way is more musical - it doesn’t have to be the same for every MPP15.
