    Good mid-price audiophile switches

    This is hard to explain and I am not qualified to do so but take with a grain of salt. From my humble testing, it is more cost effective to upgrade (and/or get more) switches than spend top coin$ on a ultra high end ethernet cable or swapping mid level to ultra high end cables. After...
