Neat "Tweaks" to improve the SQ of your streamed music!!!

After over 40 years of playing around with high end audio gear, I would consider myself a pretty well oiled audiophile (old fart). My current audio system is very highly resolving, if I may say so myself. At this juncture, I stream exclusively, so I concentrate on and strive to obtain the highest quality of sound from my streamed music. I have installed several wonderfully effective tweaks throughout my audio system over the past few years, but two of the greatest and most effective tweaks that I feel so fortunate to have discovered were the iFi LAN iSilencer and the Puron AC Conditioner. I use iFi iSilencers on all three of my ethernet cables, and I also use two of the Puron Conditioners in my listening room. I’ll let you do the research for more details on these incredible devises for yourself. But, all I can tell you is this, once I added the devices to my already highly detailed, transparent and resolving system, everything improved!!! Palpability, realism, organic-ness, see-through transparency, etc., all shined though to an even greater degree. When added to the elements of my system that are critical to the overall SQ of my streamed music, these devices actually elevated the sound quality of my audio system to a higher plateau. What these devices do so well is they effectively filter out, cleaning up and eliminate the grunge and noise from the electrical signal in the listening room, and also the ethernet signal itself, to help create a blacker, quieter background in the music. And, all at, IMHO, an extremely reasonable price. Mind you, I’m in no way associated with either company. I’m just passing on to others my own personal positive experience with these two incredible devices. They're quite amazing!!!  Happy listening.


As far as I've read, the iFi LAN iSilencer only needs to be used on one end correct? No need to have it on both ends of the cable right? thanks

I just tried the IFI ILAN on my streamer. Nice improvement for cheep cheap 🐦

Even better improvement on the back of my Ethernet wired TV. Hooked up one of my vacant LPS to my Firestick..not so sure if that did anything. 


It’s a surge protector.  So it needs to be between the LAN and the streamer that might get damaged by a surge.

Even going cheap -at least comprehensively so - can render some great results right off the bat. I was struggling for a while, wondering why after all that I’d done with my system and room that things just didn’t sound like it should. Some tracks pretty nice, most of my favorites kind of meh and semi unbalanced, seemingly out of phase at times. Then I checked out some Alpha Audio suggestions along with some other good sources explaining how simply adding a switch could really make a difference. So I got an 8 port d-link, a few blue jeans cat6a cables and these cool little line filters that also really improved upon the rest:


Also a 5v ifi smps on the d-link, and a reliapro LPS on my tp-link router/extender.

I have to agree that taking even some low cost steps with strategy will transform a system! I now have trouble getting away from my listening room 👍🏼

I bit the bullet and bought the IFIan. I've worked in recording studios for almost 50 years and this thing does work. I don't know the scientific facts about it at all.

I A-B'd it many times, walked away from it, went back and can confirm it does enhance things. I listened to Flim and the BB's, Alan Parsons all the way to the metal Pathogenic. I guess I'll have to save up for  Puron Conditioner.
