Does anyone need an audiophile network switch?
This question came to mind with the recent announcement of the totaldac d1-switch, a 3-port Ethernet Switch (4490euros incl VAT in Europe, 4200euros excl VAT out of Europe). This brought to mind a number of other recent announcements of new Ethernet Switches from hifi companies so I thought I’d put together a list. I was curious to see how many Audiophile Switches are out there in the wilds, which is about where my curiosity ends (I don’t currently use a network switch). [footnote 1]
Here’s a list of Audiophile Network Switches ranging in price from $299 to $3950:
