I feed the LHY into an Etherregen that feeds another Etherregen. Using JS2 power supplies and afterdark clock. Each is additive in sound quality. This is just crazy.

Well I just went from the LHY SW-8 to the Paul Pang Quad Switch and I couldn't be happier. I really liked the LHY SW-8 added a nice degree of relaxation to the music. Adding the Paul Pang Quad Switch I got a greater degree of relaxation, fullness and MUSICALITY that I'm loving. I was happy with my system before but now I sit down and just enjoy whatever is playing. With the Quad Switch I did have to adjust the bass down a touch as it bumped the bass up some.

I think LHY SW-8 is the most cost-effective audio switch. I have used several switches made in Taiwan and Hong Kong, but they are not as good as SW-8. I strongly recommend it.

I have the LHY SW-8 and really like it. Here are some cost effective enhancements that are additive, in terms of further reducing residual glare/noise with the SW-8 to an even quieter background resulting in a more resolving, natural and dynamic sound:
- putting a Netgear GS108E switch upstream (powered by a spare Ifi Power X) between LHY and router
- adding a couple of iFi LAN iSilencers between my server and LHY and upstream Netgear and LHY
- chassis grounding the LHY to a Quartz Acoustic grounding box
- turning off wifi on my router (yes, it’s still audible through all those layers, but much less so after adding the iSilencer).
