I'm in the process of building a new server and I would like to have it galvanically isolated from the router (although the ethernet specification implies non-galvanic coupling, the "gremlins" I've experienced with this kind of connection seem to show that some noise is making its way into the PC). I had in mind something like: ethernet cable >> rj45 to SFP converter >> sfp cable >> sfp pcie net card Do you have suggestions regarding both the fore mentioned chain configuration and/or recommentations regarding the components/cabling I should use? would the startech card be ok? Regarding the SFP, is there any vantage regarding the SC? Thanks!
reeve_mike posted a topic in Buy & Sell Audio and Computer ComponentsHi OPTICAL FIREWIRE EXTENDER For details see Opticis Fiber-optic IEEE1394b FireWire Repeater (M4-200) Not only does it provide ultimate galvanic isolation but it also allows the DAC to be up to 500m (approx 1,650 ft) from the computer. [Great solution to not having to have a computer in the listening room.] I will include a 10m (33 ft) fiber optic cable with the extender, see Newnex LC-LC Multimode Duplex Fiber Optic Cables - Industrial Component I have been using it with a Mytek Stereo192-DSDDAC for the past two years but have now moved to a USB only DAC (dCS). List price of extender & cable is $853, selling for $400 or reasonable offer. Mike
