    Grounding Boxes

    Gryphon Diablo vs Accuphase.

    I have never heard Accuphase sounding harsh on the highs, or have heard anyone else use that term in describing Accuphase sound. I think the E650 would be a fairer comparison . Have not heard the Diablo unfortunately.

    Battery power for router

    Battery powered router' for some reason I didn't think that would be possible. I have my router on W4S LPS 1, my ethernet cable goes direct to the MC200 which is battery powered at both ends. I found that removing the switch between the router and MC200 improved my SQ. I have my switch also...
