It would help if you read and comment on what we actually said, rather than giving a wholly inaccurate summary of what someone else might have said had they been in this thread.

On top of everything else the ethernet physical interface is balanced and isolated, if you have simple networking needs then buy a cheap switch, if you have more sophisticated requirements like vlans and diagnostics then buy a switch that can be managed.

I did read and comment on what was said.
Post #3 I believe -

Every single packet is received by the buffer in the streaming device BIT PERFECT!
How can you possible improve a perfect copy?
Use $50.000 on cables and at least half that on other tweaks. Just don't waste money on things like that. You are making us all look incredible stupid.

.....Hence a change in packet switch can only affect audio systems which are misusing Ethernet.
Stuff got posted before I finished composing my response which was about improving AC power longitudinal leakage and I suggest that as sound technical explanation for the noted 'impossible' subjective improvements even if I did not explicitly state that, I assumed that the reasons for the earth bonding and Double Insulated references would be understood by those skilled in the art, evidently not.
I offered advice/confirmation to the OP and you get all offended ???.
Also BTW please define just what is 'misusing Ethernet' ?.

I cannot for the life of me remember what it is. Some German made, preterminated CAT-6. Seemed cheaper than to buy a new crimping tool. Nothing even remotely audiophile, yet it made a big improvement over what was there previously.

Yeah, that's what I had in mind, decent standard pre-made cable from anywhere should be perfectly fine.

Any ideas about what was wrong with the first cable ?.

No, but the improvement was so noticeable i can easily extrapolate it upward towards the stuff sold to audiophiles.

I'm waiting for next round of theoretical reasons why this cannot be so..... .

If the proponents the tweaked hub are to be believed then I can expect an improvement, if I were to run my flac files through it, relative to an untweaked hub. Can they tell me what improvement I can expect with my pdf files?

may point to the right direction. Generally these 2-prong AC-Adapters delivers much common mode noise perceived as "100Hz hum" (120Hz respectively). Connecting the secondary circuit of the switch with PE should help by redirecting these currents to mother earth. Or buy a better one with a 3-prong AC-Adapter. These effects may be quite real and do not relate to any mysterious "digital distortion".

I've seen some PDFs changing the font from Verdana to Times Roman with a high-end Ethernet cable. Let me tell you, the improvement was not subtle!
