A network switch designed for music lovers who want to obtain more audio sources through building a digital music streaming network, but also want to enjoy the purest audio quality possible.

The Bonn N8 enables HiFi system owners to create a stable and isolated audio zone. This allows the Bonn N8 to transmit data with less interference, send over accurately timed data, and maximize the true potential of HiFi systems.

System Optimized For Better Audio Quality

Nowadays, many manufacturers use low-cost commodity components. Although acceptable for data transferring, it does not adequately support an audio-grade network. Thus, the Bonn N8 was born to pursue superior audio quality by improving many details without compromise.

High-Permeability EMI Absorber

A highly permeable EMI absorber (>120 @1MHz) is applied inside the system to reduce electrical interference.



Noise-filtering Power Adapter

Medical-grade power adapter to provide stable power and ensure precise operations.



Exclusive Clock Module, TCXO

Silent Angel’s 0.1ppm TCXO (Temperature Compensation Crystal Oscillator) is 50 times more precise than a general Crystal Clock, lowering latency issues and jitter effects.



Jitter Effect Improvement

When transmitting high-frequency network packets, distortion is a common effect. The Bonn N8 is effectively able to lower this to 369ps whereas other general switches present at 705ps. (Learn More)



Designed for HD Music Streaming

The Bonn N8 purifies audio network signals to create low-noise and low-interference environments perfect for music streaming. This creates a HiFi audio zone that effectively separates your audio devices from household traffic and reduces the impact from network broadcasting storms and latency caused by bandwidth-intensive activities from PCs and other devices.

Optimized For Music Applications

  • Optimized for Roon infrastructure. e.g. Serve a network composed of Rhein Z1 as a Roon Core server, and Munich M1 as Roon Ready players.
  • Optimized for high-resolution streaming services such as Tidal, Qobuz, Spotify and more.
  • Optimized for playing music collections from NAS (Network Attached Storage), works well with multiple brands such as QNAP, Synology, WD NAS.

Further Upgrade

  • Power Source
    Connect to the Forester F1 linear power supply (supplying dual 5V 2A DC outputs) to further improve its power source.

  • Vibration Suppression
    Minimize vibration and reduce noise by using S28 stainless steel stands.

  • Network Signal
    Daisy chain another one or more Bonn N8 units to better isolate the audio network zone from household traffic.
