"Audiophile Grade" Ethernet Switches - The new generation
@David A - thanks for the in-depth response. The issue you describe - hopefully just a single-occurrence - can be found reported numerous times in the Roon forums. Different hardware, networking, endpoints, etc... but similar symptoms. I suspect these occasionally occur due to the vagaries of home LANs and usually quickly resolved.

Pretty sure I'll pop for an EtherRegen soon... (just as soon as I finish paying off our heavily loaded credit cards from the holiday season ;-)

Often problems with streaming is poor network stability. Under all the years I have been streaming a solid network built with quality stuff means less problems and often the routers that the ISP provides is not any good.

Today I have fiber to my house and the ISP just provides a converter and you are free to use any router. I got an Ubiquiti Edge X SFP and seperate acesspoint for wifi. From the Ubiquiti I run fiber to my etherRegen and on the A-side my NUC with Roon Rock is connected. On the B-side my dCS Network Bridge is connected and during the two months I had my eR it has worked without any glitches.

I wonder if it will last for long and if it does start to have problems over time (within the warranty) what will/can Uptone do about it?
Did you post your listening impressions any where?  And are you still concerned about the heat?
A pair of Devialet Phantom Golds, system described here.

@Snoopy8 no I have not written much about it, I did some A/B comparisons but during the first time I had the eR I changed cables between my dCS and TAD equipment and got new feet for my speakers so hard to say what did what.

Regarding the heat I have solved that so now it runs around 37-38C.

Hello Octaviars, mechanically well solved! 

For technical reasons, overheating of the electronic components (electrolytic capacitors, chips etc.) less durability, I will stay away from it.  Development, technical and electronic, bull....Angry
Just my opinion.

The manufacturer should look up what the DIN standard allows for outside housing temperatures! Big Grin
