Ethernet-borne noise is often the last area of transport behaviour to tackle, but by no means the least important. Any ethernet-attached audio device (including DACs) will benefit from the fibre-optic isolation of our new plug-and-play isolator bundle, complete with all necessary cabling and a range of power supply options. Each component has been carefully chosen for optimal performance:

Ethernet/Fibre optic converter: TPLink Gigabit or 10/100 - please specify according to the specification of your streamer. Sonore MicroRendu and most Naim server/streamers are 10/100 only. Most computer-based builds using standard motherboards (including Raspberry Pi and late series SoTM sMS-200) are Gigabit compatible.

Duplex SC cable: we only use the highest quality laser-optimised 850nm fibre cable with a modal bandwidth of 4700MHz.km. Lesser cables will not carry 10G/sec signals over 550m, and 100GBps up to 150m. The total length of the standard ethernet isolator kit is 3m. However, extension of up to half a kilometre is possible. Please select the required length in the drop-down.

CAT7 Ethernet Cable: the isolator bundle comes with a 1m double-screen CAT7 output cable to provide an optimal connection between the downstream fibre optic receiver and your audio device. CAT7 performs better via every metric than CAT6 or CAT6a and has been a core component in Item Audio computer builds from their inception a decade ago.

Power Supply: the standard bundle includes a single iFi filtered switch-mode PSU for the fibre optic receiver. The tX (transmit) box is less sensitive to power improvements, but (like the router and swtich) is still worth upgrading in a sensitive system. In our experience the optimal supply for the rX box nearest the source is a linear-regulated battery. Several PSU options are available in the dropdown. Please note that use of the standard switching PSU for rX is not recommended and is not available an option on the website. If you wish to discuss a different configuration - or if you would like to use your own ethernet cable or 5-9V PSU - please call Mark on 01242 692455.

SoTM's IsoCAT filter can additionally be combined with the Item Ethernet Isolator Bundle.
