Testing Ethernet switch


If you have bought an "audio" Ethernet switch, don't bother with this thread 

If you question Ethernet switches, here is one test of one brand.

Those of us who are engineers have pointed to real experts on how Ethernet works. We are fully open to new information that can be explained in this universe.  Those who believe in only their ears have offered no argument than to attack others.  "Your system is not resolving enough" is nothing but an assumption smokescreen for someone with no argument.  I suggest looking up the topic of argument fallacies. 

That leaves placebo effect or an extraordinary claim. Many of us understand the placebo effect and that you "hear" what your mind wants you to hear. If you hear it better, good for you. Be happy. To go the step further and claim because you hear it it must be real is where your argument breaks down.  Extraordinary claims, that "other things carried along" need some evidence. 

Just because someone in an engineer does not mean they do not want to achieve better sound.  Instead of making extradentary claims that are outside known physics, maybe it would be more beneficial to understand more on how we hear so you can go down a path that improves the actual sound reproduction.  

Ethernet moves bits from one location in memory to another location in memory on a different device where it can be accessed by the client's application.  That is all it does. It can't reach past that location in memory because someone wishes it to be so. 

Lists of boutique hardware do not change physics.  Missing is your test method and description of the resolution of the tests.   At what point in client memory are you comparing the data to what point in the host?

So is everyone else here. You hold no exclusivity in that regard.

It's silly to portray yourself as a victim because no one here has attacked you. If you insist you've been victimized, alert the moderators to the offensive posts and they'll resolve it for you.

That leaves placebo effect or an extraordinary claim.

And your false claims and ill logic. Good grief.

Extraordinary claims, that "other things carried along" need some evidence. 

No one here owes you anything at all. You're not entitled.

Some people are incorrigible, know it all and therefore best ignored. Thanks for fighting their abuse, anyway.

I understand network technology and see this the same as tvgeek. Some can benefit from the insight, others can keep their views to the contrary—I do encourage noobs to be skeptical and seek information in many places before spending money.
