SPECIFICATION:

  • A complete network solution for EXTREME Audiophiles: a network switch + high-end LAN cables (optional) + high-end power supply (optional)
  • Sturdy build that can be used for a long time even under harsh environments
  • By adopting the M12 connector, designed for transmitting Maximum Data Rates, reliable network communication can be continued even if strong vibration or impact occurs (used in railway in Japan)
  • Significant improvement in signal-to-noise ratio that can’t be felt with a standard consumer type network switch
  • Improves sound quality drastically. The sound becomes smoother, treble becomes more shiny with a lot more details, sound stage becomes larger and better defined
  • standards: IEEE 802.3, IEEE802.3u, IEEE802.3ab
  • layer-2 data transfer function: data transfer method: store-and-forward
