Network Switch From Russ Andrews
27th March 2020
Russ Andrews Accessories is launching a dedicated audiophile grade Network Switch. At its heart is a custom Trichord Clock, which is used to coordinate the timing of the digital signal
Trichord’s clocks are used in a multitude of CD and Blu-ray players. The unit found in the Network Switch is custom-built for the product, to provide, “…a more accurate transfer of data to improve timing, reduce data loss and hence minimise the use of error correction,” said the company.
Eight damped and shielded RJ45 gigabit Ethernet ports accompany internal wiring via Kimber Kable.
The Network Switch features a separate dual-output PSU. One output feeds the Trichord clock and the other, on an isolated, dedicated feed, is linked to the switching side of the unit. The PSU connects to the Network Switch via a 0.3m lead made using Kimber’s PBJ cable and with locking connectors at both ends.
Both the Network Switch and the PSU are housed in matching custom designed ABS cases and each features a 4mm grounding terminal. The PSU has a 10A IEC mains socket to connect the supplied 1m YellO Power cable.
The Russ Andrews Network Switch is available now for £989 and is covered by a two-year warranty and 60 Day Home Trial with Money Back Guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied with the performance, you can return it within two months for a refund.
