  1. I use a cisco 2960G, and its SFP module, note that the max speed has to be 1G bps or less. Otherwise, it won’t work.
  2. Here is the back of my KDSM/3, and the optical ethernet cables can be seen clearly.
  3. Generally (&generically) speaking, it is the same principle that deals with any (potential) issues, you may not know that you have a problem, so good design is a design that can handle the problem when the occasion arises. Any electrical device is always noisy, whether it is very noisy or faintly/acceptable noisy. How you can hear can be an issue as well.
  4. Here is a paragraph from the Linn DSM/3 docs: "The optical Ethernet connection improves audio performance by providing complete isolation from noisy network components" So clearly Linn acknowledge this issue, right?
  5. Those are the wise words, maybe these words can be spread to the audiophiles who spend thousands of bucks on the expensive network switches. But why Linn support the optical ethernet if the problem does not exist?
  6. Yes, you are lucky. There must be a reason as to why Linn Klimax DSM/3 and other high-end streamers out there support optical ethernet? Btw, if you look at the Naim forum and elsewhere, you can see that there are quite a few people who are prepared to spend $$$$ on Audiophile switches and LPS to 'clean up' the internet stream.
  7. I agree there 'might' be something at the network switch where some conversion/transformation takes place at the output, but I think there would be no 'o to e' at receiving end. Anyway, the main point is that Linn really confirm optical/fiber ethernet sounds better than the copper one.
  8. It is interesting to note that Linn actually acknowledge that the copper ethernet is noisy, here is a paragraph from the Linn DSM/3 docs: "The optical Ethernet connection improves audio performance by providing complete isolation from noisy network components"
  9. Too many speculations for the sake of speculation! No one here has the direct experience of the situation as described by @Ben Webster
  10. i don’t think you can upgrade to dynamik at this point in time, I jusk asked Linn a few weeks ago. However, I believe Linn do offer the upgrade from time to time.
  11. Guys, is there any substantial SQ difference between a non-dynamik vs a dynamik version?
  12. The problem with any Linn DSM (except the Organik maybe) is that that the digital volume is not perfect, it is good, but not perfect. So you will lose some info if you feed the signal to an amp.
  13. Naim NAC 552 and NAP 500 came out 2002 and 2000 respectively, and they are still going strong. Lots of loyal Naim users who express their deep appreciation of the NAP (Naim Amplifier) 500 after all those years.
