Here's another review. This one is from the website of Pearl Audio in Portland, Oregon, USA, and was written by the salesperson there that I've known for years, and who helped me with my Akubarik and NG Klimax purchases. Connor is an intelligent young man, and he delves deeper into the technology than I've read in most other reviews. Enjoy! About a 7 minute read.
The experience of superb high-fidelity sound is peculiar in that it defies imagination until experienced. One can read innumerable descriptions of the performance of a stereo system or component but really understanding what is so significant is a necessarily empirical exercise. Perhaps this...
This is what stood out for me as well. Most reviews that I've read seemed rather cursory by comparison. I plan on reaching out to the author and telling him about our experiences with optical Ethernet.
@akamatsu I'm using optical ethernet with my Klimax DSM/3. It sounds great but I'm not sure if it sounds "better" than when I had ethernet hooked up. I really am unsure. I don't understand why optical would or should be better than an electrical pulse ?
