Ever wondered if you needed an ethernet switch that has built-in power conditioning for the sake of better audio fidelity? You probably haven't, but Synergistic Research has. The company developed a wild ethernet switch that is designed to smooth out electric signals inside the switch in order to gain higher audio quality from audio streaming services, but the price point is dubious, to say the least.

music IS love

When you get confused, listen to the music play!

$2500 buys a lot of music that doesnt need to be streamed

and my sub $100 switches deliver the 1s and 0s just fine. even with PoE (the Horror!)  ;D

I love stuff like that. I once had somebody tell me that gold plated USB cables sounded better. Didn't think it was worth trying to explain that that's not how that works...
