When listening to music over a network, the signal is sent to the streamer either via wi-fi or per Ethernet cable; for the latter, iFi now introduces a new accessory. The new iFi LAN iSilencer is designed to be plugged between a streamer and the associated Ethernet source – i.e. router, switch or wall socket – to optimize data transmission via the Ethernet cable. Among other things, it is supposed to remove noise and reduce jitter, as well as balance and stabilize the signal. To do this, the LAN iSilencer galvanically isolates the network signal.
The iFi LAN iSilencer is available immediately, at a price of about €90 per piece in Germany.
