Silent Angel N8
High-end audio network switch
By improving power signal quality and network signal quality and TCXO technology, N8 improves the network signal quality. On N8, there are totally 8 high quality gigabit Ethernet ports, which make it possible to connecting to network ports on all audio devices at once. Through the network signal quality improvements from N8, it introduce significant improvement in music streaming playback through streaming service or NAS.
Revolution with innovation to make music more musical and emotional. Silent Angel N8 features low electrical noise and high anti-interference ability. Make it possible to get rid of data loss and electrical noise. As a result, generates high quality network signals.
Medical grade adapter
Precise control of the clock signal
Silent Angel customized TCXO (Temperature Compensation crystal Oscillator) is highly accurate. The accuracy is 0.1ppm, which is much higher than normal crystal and higher than a normal TCXO. With this TCXO, N8 is able to generate more accurate network signal and provide more stable music data transmission.

Improved Main Board Design
Two electrical noise isolation circuits, with noise rejection rate 17dB, for power circuit.
Two electrical noise isolation circuits, with noise rejection rate 20dB, for clock generation circuit.
These noise isolation circuit ensures N8 to work in stable state, and as a result, it generates stable network signals.
High Permeability EMI Absorber
Furthermore, to reduce noise from digital circuits, N8 has special chosen EMI absorber at the inner side of bottom case to absorb the EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) from the inner digital circuit and make the network signal and clock circuit more stable and clear. Ensure N8 works more stable and generate more clear network signals.
The innovative value of N8
Comparing to general network switch, innovation and creative technologies is the core value of N8. The resulting improvements can be seen and proven on the signal measurements. Engineer in Thunder Data had found N8 network signal is much better than that of a general network switch.

What we have done to make N8 better
is to make signals pure and clear.
The result jitter improvement
The quality of network signal from N8 is 90% better than that of a general switch in jitter measurements.(lower is better)
Regular Home Switches jitter is as high as 705 ps.
N8 jitter is much lower (369 ps)
Purified Power Signal
Noise filter in power circuit, provides purified power signal and generate pure network signals
Power signal in generic network equipment
Purified power signal in N8
( Front )
( Back )
Light indicators at front panel including power, alarm, link status and link speed of 8 ports. Make it convenient to know the status of network devices.
Eight audio grade 100/1000 Base-T gigabit Ethernet ports at rear panel, suitable for your network audio devices and all your home network appliances.
Equipped with exchangeable AC plug and medical grade power adaptor, which reduces the electrical noise from AC power and prevents from effecting the quality of network signals. The power efficiency level is as high as VI and no load power consumption < 0.075W. Complete protection circuit design featuring short circuit, over load, over voltage protection

I had another test now with N8 in comparison with a Netgear Prosafe switch. Damn, this was quiet a diference I must say. Listening on McIntosh Amp with NAD Master Streamer-Server on PMC Twenty5.24 speakers. I have seen on your foto, that the Tokyo shop has PMC speakers too, exzellent.
The bonn is an excellent switch. It brings all music genre into focus,micro details become more apparent,there is more tone making musical instruments sound realistic,there is improved pace an timing etc. and background is blacker... Overall it is as if i have upgraded an expensive preamp...or more! I am very impressed by this product.
