Why use an audiophile network switch?

In the world of streaming music, there is a belief that digital signals by their nature are immune to the failings of analogue transmission – but it’s not that simple – and even the most hardened digital sceptic may be surprised at what can be achieved with a high specification Ethernet switch.

Listening to streamed music is not just about measurements and numbers. While both elements have important roles during product design and development, the real test for music lovers is how it sounds…

The 8switch by English Electric (a Chord Company brand), is an 8 port GbE Ethernet switch modified and upgraded to our specific requirements for high-performance music streaming networks.

Here at Vinyl Groove Audio we are just as passionate about streaming music to vinyl playback. We want to ensure we can make the best sound as possible and the EE8 switch is just a fantastic game-changer.

Understandably, it is very easy to be sceptical and this is why we have an EE8 Switch on demo and also available to home trial with a selection of great sounding streaming cables from The Chord Company e.g. C-Stream & Shawline.

Why not have a listen and test it yourself?
