  1. That is the one I have. here is the comparison table https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/switches/catalyst-2960-c-series-switches/models-comparison.html#2960 I would think that any without PoE would be ok, and as I said earlier I stuck with 10/100 (despite having a gigabit network). Throughput has been fine.
  2. Now all we need is an update to the 272 streamer/dac and everyone will be happy
  3. Bought off ebay. Just checked there are some still around, although not from the seller I bought from. You want one of the white boxed ones, not the blue/green. There are quite a few variants. The number of uplink ports (2 or 4) doesn’t matter, but I went with a 10/100 model rather than gigabit as it was the one on the naim forum that everyone had success with. If you search ebay for this one Cisco WS-C2960C-8TC ... it will do the job. let me know how you go!
  4. Bargain. These were great units in their day. Actually improved the picture quality of my panasonic plasma
  5. Indeed, this is the one I use. Enough processing power to do all the DSD upsampling you need. (I also run mine fanless in an akasa case)
  6. Source is tidal, and ripped CDs on a Nuc running Roon ROCK streaming to a Sotm sms-200 ultra. Sotm and Nuc are located in hifi rack with amp and are the only devices connected to the cisco switch, the rest of the house is off the netgear.
  7. Having followed the naim forum on this topic for a while I finally took the plunge and moved all audio components off a netgear GS724t onto a cisco catalyst 2960. Best $150 I ever spent. A surprising noticeable improvement https://community.naimaudio.com/t/to-switch-or-not-to-switch/567 More info here also https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/page/321/ Don’t shoot the messenger, I didn’t believe it either..until I did it. Highly recommended.
  8. And you can add Nordmende to the list. Remember them?
