  1. Congratulations. I have the same digital/speaker setup as you and I have to say I find it very satisfying. I shall have to listen to a NGKSM at some point in the near future but, for now, I’m quite happy with my KSH.
  2. I know very little about optical Ethernet transmission but, for my ignorance, why should that be the case? Presumably optical can carry noise along with the 0’s and 1’s the same as other digital transmission mechanisms? Or not?.....
  3. I guess the question is does adherence to patch cable standards guarantee ‘better’ sound or just guarantees the stability of data transfer? Are they the same?
  4. My first thoughts are: If you are listening to the same versions of a track on Tidal and from your local storage - then they should be the same volume. If they are noticeably different - then I would suspect they are not the same version. Secondly, I almost always prefer they local stored version to the streaming service version (versions being identical).
  5. If you are referring to generations of KSH then you have omitted the 2018 version which was substantially better than the 2016 (in relative terms). As ‘troll says - apparently the NGKSH is much better than all.
  6. Does anyone ‘know’ that for certain yet or does this remain speculation?
  7. Haha. I think all of these things just demonstrate the difficulties that we have in evaluating whether there are indeed changes when we are listening to known changes to our systems. It is maybe why Linn look to the Tunedem methodology to focus on a more subconscious level (follow the tune) rather than intense analytical listening?
  8. From the same forum there is also a very interesting review of the Uptone EtherRegen: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/uptone-audio-etherregen-switch-review.10232/
  9. I used to believe that I could detect a positive difference by connecting sources directly to my display rather than through my KSH. However I recently found myself with too many 4K sources for the number of available 4K inputs on my display and so decided to reconfigure my connections via my KSH. I could not identify any change whatsoever.
  10. Thanks for sharing. Very interesting as you say. Simple and straightforward and seemed to make sense - particularly about how different equipment may be affected by the improvements of a better switch.
  11. I completely agree. I upgraded a 2016 KEDSM to a 2019 Hub. A very clear and substantial change.
