  1. No argument from me on that, although I'm hardly an authoritative reputable source. In fact I'd even say that if the power supply is designed with it in mind, power cords would not make any difference as long as they sized properly for the current demands. Obviously, a skinny lamp cord is inappropriate for a large power amp. The thing is, how many manufacturers do that, really? I have seen almost no commercial gear that really worries about common-mode noise currents, as just one example. There's an audio world dogma that says that details like that do not matter. Most customers
  2. I don't know how to say this well, but I'll do my best. Is your server supplier a going, growing company?
  3. How did you find the prices? When I looked, they were all TBD.
  4. The amount of work to do this well is daunting. I had a hard time trying to imagine what target audience would actually benefit.
  5. I dunno about that, but I agree with the rest. True story: At one time, I gave some thought to actually putting up a blog of some kind. Or, maybe a series of YouTube presentations. I was going to call it "This Olde Amplifier", which is an obvious play on the TV show. The idea was to talk about modernizing some older amplifiers that are fundamentally good (I was going to say "sound" there instead of good, but decided against it), but had some design flaws and probably could use some maintenance updates anyway. I really hate the idea of perfectly good gear sitting on a shelf
  6. What the &$#@ is that supposed to imply, you (#@!% *&&^$ $#@? This isn't about fun, you $#+_%! 😅
  7. You never know. People can get upset over all sorts of things. Anyway, I certainly wish you luck with your project!
  8. I haven't watched the whole video, but this might be of interest: No, I have no connection to Sonore, or Small Green Computer. Never even saw any of their products in real life. But, like most people here, I do have a connection to YouTube. :8^)
  9. How does it work? Ahh, that's a simple question with a long answer. Actually. several of each. Do you mean how does optical transmission work? Why might it be better for audio use? How does Ethernet work? My fingers are getting numb at the mere prospect of answering all those. If you have the patience and time, there must be 41 threads about this over at whatever ComputerAudiophile.com is called now. A fellow using the online name of jabbr is pretty knowledgable on the subject. Also, there's this: https://andreweverard.com/2015/06/08/high-resolution-audio-now-with-added-fibre/
  10. OK, if you say so. The TP-Link gadgets are cheap enough that for Huang's application, it probably wouldn't cost much more than a decent Ethernet cable. Not a boutique cable, either. So, if it doesn't work as well as he'd like, he won't hate me forever. Maybe just nine years.
  11. The Celtics played a couple games each year at the HCC from about 1975 to 1995. This allowed them to lock the TV rights for most of CT for the Celtics. Plus, at the time, the HCC actually had a couple thousand more seats than the old Boston Garden. Plus, the Celtics were and still are only tenants in Boston Garden since the company that owns the Bruins owns the Garden. So, the Celtics actually made more money playing in Hartford. Ain't sports and business grand? Anyway, I'm 99% sure that I went to every one of the games in Hartford - may have missed one. I started when I was in
  12. This isn't an Ethernet filter, per se. It will provide isolation for you and that is probably 94% of the solution. https://www.tp-link.com/us/business-networking/accessory/mc100cm/ These are available on Amazon, Newegg, and CDW for stupid low prices. TP-Link also has other models for Gig-E and as well as units that use SFP modules instead of a built-in interface. You may also want to check this out: https://uptoneaudio.com/products/etherregen This might get you the remaining 6%. Or more. (Or not!) Full disclosure: I have experience with the TP-Link product, but not for
  13. I get you... Still, always consider the source!
  14. Nah. Although I am not bothered if people throw internet rocks at me, I still don't think it's fair for me to do so. So, I won't. I guess even bringing the subject up wasn't fair. As I said, ravings of a madman. Besides, wtf do I know anyway? I'm just another guy with access to the internet. This is why I point to real experts and what they wrote about a subject whenever I can.
  15. Uhhh, I refuse to name names here.
