I received last week my LS5/9f pair in walnut. They have changed the design a bit. Smaller front grille and the plinths
are a bit more rounder looking. Very nice improvements I must say.

I have the black on the right. It comes with included powersupply ( a Farad super 3).
I also choose to reclock the USB outsignal with an internal Ideon reclocker.

I have only had it connected some few hours. Its placed right in front of the ER. One can hear better soundstage, smoother and clearer cymbals. A lot more air, reverbs and room information decays in a natural way. More and clear lowend. Vocals seem easier to hear the lyrics.

I just now ordered a switch from Afterdark. Its actually a OXCO modded Netgear GS105 with LT3045 and prince grade of the oxco. All is powered with a LPSU.
Should be fine also for video and so on. I already have a etherregen with external Afterdark clock so I hope this will improve further.
Thank you Dan, very impressive write up.
As for the final stage. Have you considered ENO ag, Ediscreation fiber box, or the new Waversa Lan EXT-1 isolator. I have not tried
either of them and they may work a bit different from each other.
