    I bought 2 and only ended up using one. I'll sell mine for $120 including postage. Please note that the one I have and the Addicted to Audio one have US plugs.

    Yes, I do. Brings a little more detail and settles things down a little. The more filtering you have in place, the less effect it has. Interestingly unlike some filtering, it does not dull the sound - it adds a bit of sparkle.

    I meant the Ultrarendu and the microrendu don't need high current. The SOTM units definitely do.

    The Ultra and Micro Rendu's don't need high current. The LPS-1.2 that Uptone recently developed only delivers 1.1A. However, I guess you might be able to use a "Y" DC cable to run more than one device with a beefier PSU. http://docs.sonore.us/ultrarendu/ POWER SPECIFCATIONS The Sonore ultraRendu utilizes an optional power supply capable of delivering 6-9 volts at 1 amp min (center +). Do not exceed these power specifications or damage to the unit will occur. Damage from an unapproved power supplies will void the unit's warranty.

    Have you seen any indication of the price from Uptone's switch? The Paul Pang one is $349 US including freight. I'd be interested to hear more about the Uptone one - they make good gear.

    Latency 197ms. That seems high to me. Maybe someone with some IT knowledge might be able to comment. http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2687899/high-latency-modem-router.html If you can look up your CPU usage inside the router this might reveal it is getting overloaded with requests. I haven't been following this whole thread but if you have a crappy OEM router that was provided by your ISP then these sorts of functions are usually disabled. And quite often the OEM routers are garbage. Whirlpool has a good thread on NBN compatible routers - make sure you get one with VOIP if your phone runs off your router otherwise you won't have a phone!! I am going to get one of these - cheap and has QOS and very powerful WIFI - https://www.umart.com.au/TP-Link-Archer-VR600-V2-AC1600-Wireless-Gigabit-VDSL-ADSL-Modem-Router_41293G.html
