    M12 Gold Switch

    the switches are in stock with cables and power supplies. The lead time is for Optimo 3 duo which every unit is customized and different transformer is required depending the AC mains voltage, dc output voltages and connectors. 3-4 weeks is not long for a bespoke build, but perhaps there are...

    M12 Gold Switch

    In my opinion, the impact on sound is greatly defined by m12 switch gold wiith the optimo 3 duo power supply as it's closest to the hi-fi system. Router choice is still audible, but it has much lower effect. Once you receive the optimo 3 duo and the signature lan cable gold m12x, you will...

    Depends what you use to output AES/EBU. If it's a USB-AES/EBU converter then obviously you can use jplay.

    M12 Gold Switch

    thank you @Musiclvr I wish to be able to sell the m12 switch main unit separately. It is not my idée fixe to force the sales of the m12 switch with the cables. Japan Telegaertner Limited has this policy and my price for the set with cables is the same as the main unit alone. I am in...

    M12 Gold Switch

    Mark, this is not fair, to put it mildly. I have the exclusive right to sell Telegaertner Japan Limited in Europe. You have not even contacted me to get a quote and I am working with dealers. Instead, you go behind me back and source the m12 switches from one of the distributors outside of EU...

    M12 Gold Switch

    That looks very nice. Thank you for sharing. I'd recommend using the net isolator between the router and the m12 switch. Best regards, Marcin

    New to the forum: high end music server with Roon Core and 3 x dedicated linear power supplies

    I have a question: what happens if a recording is already in 432Hz? e.g. Leszek Mozdzer & Holland Baroque - Earth Particles

    SoulNote S-3 CD/SACD player & transport, D-3 DAC,..

    Thanks for the report on the K1X @CKKeung It's on my DAC ilst to audition. I'm no longer interested in any DACs based on integrated circuits. R2R is superior imho. The only interesting DAC I heard based on D/A chip was Gryphon Kallliope, but still, the treble from Sabre is not acceptable to my...

    M12 Gold Switch

    As I already wrote in the email, the Optimo 3 Duo does not have enough current topower the Nucleus+. It may be ok for the standard Nucleus, but definitely not for the Nucleus+. The JS-2 has 5A current that's why it works with the Nucleus+. The Optimo 3 Duo, as the model name suggests, can...

    APL DSD-MR DAC

    Selling my beloved APL DSD-MR DAC, because I'm upgrading to the newly released DSD-MR MKII which I heard is even better... I'm the first and only owner of this DAC unit. I bought directly from the manufacturer originally as DSD-M model, but then it was upgraded by the manufacturer to DSD-MR. It...

    Signature LAN Cable GOLD M12 X Now compatible with the M12 SWITCH GOLD.

    M12 Gold Switch

    12V/2A is OK. My Optimo 3 Duo has 12V/3A per output. The overall design and components of the PSU are more important than higher current for the m12 switch imho. This is the setup to beat:

    Peter, the switch should connect to router, NAS and both of your PCs. Please see the diagram below:

    Network Improvements and their Impact on Sound Quality

    Peter, if you did a test and listen what the m12 switch gold does in a system that plays local files, you wouldn't be posting this. The advantage is clear after 5 seconds. And I came all the way from direct Ethernet connection in JPLAY dual PC mode since in was introduced in 2012, through...

    Japan Telegaertner MFP8 IE GOLD RJ45 LAN connector in addition to being gold plated (the standard version supplied to 3rd party is only nickel plated), it has a new substrate with gold plated contact and signal pins and is made to be less susceptible to micro vibration over the standard version...

    I'm copying the link with @romaz impressions on the m12 switch gold posted in the SGM Extreme thread: https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/taiko-audio-sgm-extreme-the-crème-de-la-crème.27433/post-641816

    M12 Gold Switch

    I'm pretty sure a RJ45 variation of the switch will not sound as good. The m12 connectors are greatly reponsible for the sound the switch 'produce'

    M12 Gold Switch

    Bob, I'd recommend grounding to an outlet. This is what I do in my cable: https://jcat.eu/product/usb-lan-ground-conditioner/

    M12 Gold Switch

    Which one are you referring to - Reference (Green) or Signature (Orange)? The Signature is less stiff.
