    Not surprisingly, it seems very JCAT/JPLAY influenced.

    Although I have no dog in this race, the simple introduction of JCAT Ethernet card in my Windows 10/ Roon server made a significant step in the sound quality of computer audio in my system. I have tried returning to the old cards for a confirmation check and the system lost most of its envelopment and easiness. Before you ask, no, it was not a controlled blind experiment, but lasted for a few days.

    My comment was not a criticism of JPLAY or JCAT in any way.

    It was directed at the referenced article which leans heavily and obviously in favor of all their products and, imho, seems unsuitable as a guide for those not already committed to those products.

    Good job Rubinson...u killed this thread with a stupid comment directed at Marcin's products.

    IMO he was trying to be helpful, that's all....

    Not at all. I made no comment about his products nor will I. What I pointed out was an apparent bias in the article.

    Me, too.

    Irrelevant to the thread and something for the reader to decide if there is any bias, relevant or not......Poor form

    I gotta agree with you on this one Kings. We are fortunate to have Marcin here. I am not even smart enough to get Kal's post. Why would any one expect a manufacturer to come here and pitch any one's product than but their own? Should we expect Magico speakers in the Wilson room at AXPONA this year?

    AFAIK, this is not Marcin's thread.

    I stopped reading the linked-to page as soon as I saw the limited range of the writer's considerations. Ignore my comments, if you choose.

    Kal,

    Posts #130 and #131 were an answer to a direct request for a CAT product (#129) and Marcin signature identifies his connection to CAT.

    As posts changed page between #130 and #131 you probably missed the connection.
