Some may want one for the digital interface too I assume, hence 3.
Emile, do you have a rough estimate as to when you have the final pricing for the various BPS options? If I remember correctly the BPS was said to be released around May. So it would be great to know some time ahead how many of those pennies need to be in that audiophile piggy bank.
can you share anything on what voltages you are planning to supply?
i would assume 2 are optimized for the switch and router?
I’m not sure. The amount of wattage needed to power the digital interface + the analog components are probably going to be orders of magnitude higher than for the usb or even network interface card.
And we already have a two way splitter. Will there be a three way splitter for this?
I haven’t had my coffee yet but here it is ….the pearl of the day. Now you have our minds racing EmileYou’d probably choose either the USB card or the new interface. But we have a solution coming up for that too.
I knew you would write that!I haven’t had my coffee yet but here it is ….the pearl of the day. Now you have our minds racing Emile
I'd like to add observation #3...I received my Switch today courtesy of FedEx. Two observations:
1) I wondered, what the hell could possibly be in this thing and what might its specific gravity possibly be?
So I looked it up. Here's the table I found:

2) I was only able to listen briefly before I headed out to Carnegie to hear The Philadelphia Orchestra play Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and wondered if what I was about to hear would be as good as what I heard through the Taiko Switch.
I'd like to add observation #3...
I was very surprised to see that when I returned today from last night's concert, Roon radio was still playing (24+ hours)! That has never happened before! It is apparently widely recognized that Roon radio is highly "network sensitive", whatever that means. Emile as said that the switch helps "stabilize" Roon in that regard. So my question for Emile is simply why? Can you share what about the switch makes Roon far more stable when running with the switch, than just running a direct line from modem to the Extreme?
I'm getting pauses while playing files or streaming. Never had this happen. With Roon into the Album it stops, it says nothing playing, after about 5 seconds it go's back to where it paused. I have to hit play from here or play and it resumes. Its done this several times...Its not speeds I have 1gig...EDIT Just switched from the plain Jane inexpensive UTP CAT6a to CAT8, lets see if this stops the pausing...EDIT # 2 Its not the cables pause happened again...Well it doesn’t really stabilize but it is a stable performer unlike a surprising amount of other gear. Virtually all of our support on Roon is caused by either a faulty automatic Roon update or poor networking performance like bad performing switches, cabling or 100Mbit networking.
@Taiko, Possible to see a pic of the black switch if you’ve received it?
Very stealth.A quick Saturday night shot:

The TPM chip is necessary for high current outputs, meanwhile we have developed “low current” output options with integrated safety features for powering devices like switches, routers etc. The new regulator section for the Extreme which can be powered by an external BPS does indeed have a TPM chip installed.
