Innuos - PhoenixNET switch

This is a pretty compelling solution and addresses each of the main issues when streaming audio. I have found when streaming Tidal files using this switch the performance is really compelling. Is a great vinyl system that is setup well with a MC cartridge better….yes it is, better is some ways, but not in all ways. This comes very close where I could be very, very happy with a streaming only setup…but I’m never giving up on vinyl. Mike @Audio Two
  • Innuos
  • Audiophile-grade Network Switch
  • Designed from the ground up for network audio
  • Design is focused on 4 areas: Noise, Clock,Power and Vibration
  • Increased Clocking Precision using the same 3ppb 25MHz OCXO oscillator as used in the Statement series
  • Power supply has Mundorf caps and Provides Pristine Power to the internal Components
  • Feet are designed to Minimise Vibration on the internal Components
  • Dimensions: 215mm x 342mm x 87mm (W x D x H)

    Typical IT network switches/routers are designed with the sole purpose of taking data from A to B with a noise floor and precision that is "enough" for the rate of transmission. This is fine for data networks but when sensitive components such as DACs and Pre-Amplifiers are involved, it will have an audible impact on sound quality.

    • Simpler 100mbps network switch chip results in lower operating noise floor compared to Gigabit
    • Network switch chip with no internal switching regulators. All 3 independent voltages supplied by internal Statement-grade linear power supply with independent ultra-low noise regulation.
    • Massive individual Network Isolation Transformers to further isolate from noise coming from router or connected devices
    • Just the right amount of Individually shielded, high quality ethernet ports soldered directly to the board with no ethernet activity lights as blinking LEDs introduce considerable electrical noise.
    • EMI absorption at the right places so that interference produced can be captured before influencing other components.


    2 independent Statement-grade linear power supplies with Mundorf Caps to power individually the OCXO clock and the mainboard, keeping the power path short with less opportunity for EMI contamination.
