Yep, I am using two TP-Link FMCs between my EoP Adapter in the dining area and the audio rack; a 7 M run of Tripp-Lite optical fiber cost me all of....$16. An Audioquest Diamond Ethernet run that long would cost...$7400. Sorry, AQ, but no.

I’m interested in the difference between the zen and the zenith.

More goodness; most likely due to the power supply. But at over 4 grand, I won't be going there.

Super Dave O.

Wouldn’t you want a dedicated clock with the SOtM switch versus coming off the main system?

Thought is a setup would look like this:

Clock > Switch > Gigafoil > Component

Versus the clock at the component having to back track to the switch?

Yeah, that's the config I would think would be optimal.

Default Any SoTM users here?

Good question. I think this depicts that route better. (Sorry to attempt to be Tommy technical)

Clock ————
I I
Gigafoil - Switch - Streamer/DAC

OR


Clock ————————
I I
Switch - Gigafoil - Streamer/DAC

I don’t think a clock is in the signal transmission line in this case.

Side note:

SOtM translates to “Soul of the Music”.
