So I started investigating premium Ethernet cables to see if there would be an advantage over cat 6a (which I found sounded better than cat 5) from my router to the DS/BII.
Once inside this rabbits hole of research, I discovered the world of Ethernet isolators, and using Ethernet via optical converters then back to copper cables. Some posts on computer audiophile seemed to indicate a benefit to isolating the computer and router via optical . I ordered the suggested parts, two TP link 210 and long dual optical cable, but after Receiving I realized the device needs tbase 1000 to work (they do make 10/100 versions)
Intersingly someone commented that they had a short audioquest carbon with premium connectors made up to go from the optical receiver and that provided a 10 percent benefit (upgrade from standard cat 6) from what the optical provided.
Anyone else experimented with optical Ethernet or isolators?
