  1. fortunately this is an open forum so I'll carry on providing facts and evidence so there's balance
  2. I have no issue with that (even ignoring the facts), however you're not all even testing the same bloody thing! Agree on the care point - if you want to test something compare it against the internal linn test track with the switch disconnected and turned off. if you can hear a difference then try to figure out what the issue is and fix it instead. Great example of the issue with what this test is trying to do and the issue with the conclusions
  3. You're only interested it proving yourself right regardless of what the facts actually say. I've even provided you a credible way for you prove your point which you won't do for obvious reasons. I've not insinuated that people can't hear a difference, I have explained why they might though - something you're unable to do. ignoring the facts, and treating symptoms instead of the actual underlaying issue is a waste of everyone's time - you're just fooling yourself
  4. I thought the conclusion was that no audible differences were demonstrated? Are you saying that this is wrong? . . https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/townsend-isolda-cable.7109/page-33
  5. Why wouldn't you? not caring about the facts or if isn't technically justifiable doesn't change things, you're trying to draw a conclusion about something which cannot be drawn. Different manufacturers, and different models in the same manufacturer, design and build their switches in different ways so that the "first" and "last" port take different paths in the circuitry. Cisco switch A may route port 1 next to the PSU circuit, while Cisco switch B may route port 1 as far away from the PSU as possible. Your not even asking what model switch people are using, your results are meaning
  6. so now it's not even people creating accounts and stating how right you are on their very 1st post anymore, you're just writing it for them instead? you've still not answered Tony's questions from the 1st page.
  7. good 1st post, who do you work for? digital glare? rubbish. files from the NAS over Wifi?
  8. you'd be better fixing your dirty mains and network and spending the money on the hifi instead
  9. no blind testing!? after everything we've talked about you did the exact thing which everyone said wouldn't give a valid result. no explanation of the mechanics as to how this can make a difference when the ethernet standards, physics and psychoacoustics say otherwise. this is easily explained by bais. I look forward to your unfounded, unsubstantiated, and/or unnecessary criticism of my post which won't address any of the points that people have raised in the past 24 pages, and the other related threads.
  10. not quite what you might be looking for but there are solutions which use Airplay if you have a mac, or on Linn there is songcast. this will allow you to play BBC sounds on a PC/MAC through your streamer. I'd guess there might be other options out there as well - maybe chromecast based using a HDMI dongle, it would need some research https://docs.linn.co.uk/wiki/index.php/Songcast
  11. I don't understand your point, sorry it's lost in translation. just taking a guess here, if you're referring to my crazy experiment to see if I could make my Akurate DS sound better, let me explain my thought process. There's sound science & rationale behind increasing shielding & doing things to prevent EMI within the streamer especially given Linns different approach to the Master clock being in the streamer - and before you suggest it, no that rationale does not transpose over to the Ethernet port, that's a different thing for the point which have been raised in the oth
