d1-switch, the sound quality improving ethernet switch

The d1-switch is made to improve the sound of a digital source connected to the network, making the sound more natural for local files playing and for internet streaming.
The d1-switch uses 4 internally chained ethernet switches, an OCXO oscillator, a mains filter and embeds natively a Totaldac live-power power supply, already proven for Totaldac DACs, streamers, drivers and amplifiers.
You can insert this switch in the system just to improve the source quality (acting like an ethernet reclocker/filter), even if you don't need to multiply the ethernet sockets.
The Totaldac d1-switch is embedded in the same enclosure as the Totaldac DACs or streamers, for a perfect matching in a Totaldac system.
Three RJ45 sockets have each their functionality:
-a router input, connected to the router or to a local network wall socket
-a NAS input, connected to a NAS or a server or a roon core, a Totaldac d1-player for example
-a streamer input, connected to a Totaldac d1-streamer-mk2 for example

"For me, and in my system and with my sonic preferences, there is no question that the D1-switch is a significant sonic improvement for me.
The bottom line is that once I heard how music sounded with the D1-switch, it would be very difficult to listen to my digital front end without it!"
