Sample Test – Five Audiophile switches

Some images do not require any textual clarification. Music is enough! Our goal is to make samples of as many products as possible. Purely because in our opinion it can be fun and useful to just listen to equipment. This time: five audiophile switches! We link them to a Netgear X12 router and connect them to our reference system: A Pass Labs XP-12, Bryston 4B SST3 and the Metrum-duo. Filtering comes from the Kemp (PowerStrip 8plus) and the Isotek Titan EVO3. Tip: put on a good pair of headphones for best results.
