The Audio-Grade Network Switch with Two Zones for HiFi Grade Deployment
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 N16’s unique design consists of two individual 8-port switch subsystems and an advanced linear system power supply in a rack-mountable chassis. Each subsystem has a linear-powered TCXO clock module allowing transmission with less interference while sending accurately timed data over the audio network.
Nowadays, many manufacturers use low-cost commodity components. Although acceptable for data transfer, it does not adequately support an audio-grade network. Thus, the N16 was born to pursue superior audio quality by improving many details without compromise.
When transmitting high-frequency network packets, distortion is a common effect. The N16 is effectively able to lower jitter effects and even go lower by daisy chaining one zone to another. (Learn More)
Connect each zone to an uplink router or switch individually. Each zone’s network traffic is isolated. Audio devices are separated in one zone, while PCs and other devices are in another zone.
Connect Zone1 to an uplink router. Daisy chaining both zones helps to further purify Zone2’s network signals for audio devices’ deployment.
