Network Switches
@thyname...This is the level of blatant ignorance and misinformation that I have come to expect from some of the people on this thread..."It is all about some form of noise (usually either voltage noise or phase noise) hitching a ride along with t... 
Network Switches
Despite my attempts to educate people that if RF/EM noise introduction at the switch will really affect the audio signal, then after passing through hundreds or even thousands of interim switches and routers how do we even have a recognizable audi...

@almarg I have said this before but you choose to ignore common sense and continue to spew techo-babble.Your arguments assume that the ethernet signal as received by your audiophile switch is perfect and that your audiophile switch will transmit t... 
Network Switches
Based on my experience in the networking field and 50 years of audio tinkering, I truly believe that audiophile network switches are utter nonsense, designed solely to bilk gullible audiophiles, and those that hear a difference do so because they ... 
Network Switches
You do realize that the signal from Tidal or Qobuz has passed through hundreds of regular old switches on its way to your router.  To think that a local switch will be able to reassemble the seemingly mangled bits into a once-again pure whole is s... 
Network Switches
No, I have not, nor will I ever.  Having been a network technician for over 30 years I know that a network switch's job is to faithfully receive packets and transmit them to their intended target.  If it doesn't do that it will be replaced as defe...

A WiFi router usually has a switch built in.  The router interfaces with the service providers network and usually doles out IP addresses to the connected devices on the home network.  An audiophile switch connects into one of the ports of the WiF... 
Most annoying post period
The OP's original statement was  "The most annoying song period", even though the post was titled  "The most annoying post period".  I'm assuming he meant that the most annoying post was one that asked about the most annoying song. 
Bit Disappointed in NAD
Fight for your $65, plus see if you can get a refund from Crutchfield.  $250 will buy a very decent outboard DAC (Schiit Modi Multibit or SMSL SU-8, for example) 
Stylus-Drag..Fact or Fiction?
I have a Luxman PD-277 direct-drive turntable and have seen the strobe slow down very slightly when the stylus is dropped.  The effect is more noticeable at the outer edge of the record. 
How much are AR AR3's worth these days?
So four people honor your asking price and you pull the ad and leave them hanging so you can get more money.  To me that's one of the definitions of the "Craigslist Loser". 
Active pre-amp for “difficult” music (fusion)
Are you sure it's your equipment?  Many fusion albums are just poorly recorded. 
Bose 301 modifications
You'll never turn that sow's ear into a silk purse.  The best thing you can do for them is to get the Loki equalizer from Schiit and try to fix the sound electronically. 
Looking for A Cost Effective Phono Amp- Any suggestions?"
If you are leaning towards the low end, the fully discreet Schiit Mani is far more dynamic, open and transparent than the NAD, which is a single opamp (NE5532) design for moving magnet cartridges with a simple transistor circuit to provide the gai... 
Neil Young’s Lonely Quest to Save Music
“We worry that the humanity is being drained out of music.” Stream quality notwithstanding, this also could be a comment on the fact that fewer and fewer humans are actually involved in the creation of music.
