I recall asking Richard if I should plug my PC into the BMU as it was my streaming source at the time. He was not sure if it would be of benefit and it was my decision. The PC was already plugged into a eight socket extension which I plugged into the BMU. The thought of plugging in the router/hub situated some distance away did not cross my mind.Hemmo1969 wrote: ↑Mon Jan 13, 2020 9:08 pmInteresting point this, I once asked Richard about plugging my other electrical apps in my BMU (streamer/NAS) and he always seamed to say ‘don’t do it’ ??CN211276 wrote: ↑Mon Jan 13, 2020 6:05 pmThe recent discussions prompted me to do something I wish I had a long time ago as I have poor mains. I dug out a lengthy unused extension cable from a cupboard, plugged it into the BMU and connected the router and NAS. The improvement was greater than I expected in the same areas as when the hifi was connected to the BMU over three years ago. There is a greater sense of space providing a more enjoyable music experience. Obviously a lot of electrical muck had been entering the ethernet connection. What I have described is with the A20. I expect the improvement will be magnified with the upgraded A80s.
I am contemplating what further benefits will arise with an audiophile ethernet cable or a device such as the Silent Angel. It is all about eliminating muck interfering with the digital signal.
You’ve got me thinking now I need to actually try it. Have a socket left spare on the BMU seams a waste
The A80s take up two sockets in the BMU with two extension leads fitted to the others. The Phono 1 has now been moved from the BMU to the eight socket extension. The BMU has definetly cleaned up what the router/hub feeds to the jitterbug connected to the streamer.
