Siltech Classic Legend 380 Network Cables. This 100 Ohm Ethernet cable uses two 100 Ohm twisted pairs of G9 silver-gold alloy conductors for optimum signal transfer, allowing your streamer to properly do its job.
Many manufacturers of specialist network cabling focus on data rate and making their cables as ‘fast’ as possible – without appreciating that audio data does not need to be lightning fast. Much more important is the consistency of the transfer rate and the integrity of the data transferred.
For all digital cables, transmission accuracy depends on the cable topology, materials, and termination. Poor impedance matching or geometrical inconsistency causes reflections and echoes in the data stream, while crystal boundaries or grain in the conductors cause micro-distortions. Any imperfection impacts the accuracy of the critical clocking and amplitude information. It’s also easy to overlook that higher frequency signals are more vulnerable to outside interference.
To achieve the best sound, the Siltech Classic Legend 380 Network Cables utilize the 100BASE-TX specification – on purpose – which supports a maximum speed of 100Mbps. Because of this, it is important to set the ports of smart network switches to the correct speed or on auto. This feature is usually found in the port configuration menu of the network switch.
