Gosh, they really do see audiophiles coming from a long way off.
Out Cisco 2960 series 8 port gigabit switch cost us £60, though to be fair it is reconditioned, not new.
Uptone Audio has been using the Cisco 2960 10/100 and gigabit 8 port switches as the benchmarks to beat for its new EtherRegen switch, which is about to be launched at a retail of about $640 in the USA, circa £650 in the UK (from Audiostore). The Ansuz switch will have to be somewhat special to be worth $2,400+
Food for thought.
