    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    A friend just remind me that some fiber device support 100/1000 with negotiation, so if your other end is Extreme, you can check the interface card driver option for similar settings, can try to fix some settings to avoid wrong negotiation.

    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    Before my Melco arrive, I've a Tp-link TL-SG3210 switch with SFP socket, and a Tp-link FMC MC220L working well with a set of SFP module and fiber. When Melco arrive, i unplugged the module from the FMC and insert to Melco, but it doesn't work, with LED light stay off. So i try a few other...

    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    Problem fixed, and i follow hols by adding another switch up stream, connect through fiber and FMC, and plug everything to it; leaving only my dCS Bartok connect to Melco, i concur with him that this gives the best result so far. Tonal / details / silence / dynamic are better, sound closer to...

    Hi CKKeung, I read you guys' report repeatedly, very enjoyable and enlights me in my ways.

    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    Thx CKK and looking forward for the report. As a budget user like many others, I'm especially interested in the comparison of the 3 lowest cost config, ER / s100 / sotm, and how they justify for each increment of price.

    SOtM sNH-10G Network Switches x2 : The NEW KING of USB/Network Gadget Setup

    Thanks for the explanation, I'm using a DIY fanless NUC style PC running ROCK, with a SSD storing music in an ext. USB box, I think I will settle on this meanwhile. I've a chance audit the sotm switch once in a demo before. Using 1 to replace a cheap switch make a different, but I can't be sure...

    SOtM sNH-10G Network Switches x2 : The NEW KING of USB/Network Gadget Setup

    Thx CKK for the excellent report, I read through it multiple times and keeping learning from it. There is 1 point I don't understand, for the "desktops which could be used as Roon core", is there SQ reason not putting the music file on it, but on a NAS separately ? Especially it is a DIY...
