Typical IT network switches/routers are designed with the sole purpose of taking data from A to B with a noise floor and precision that is “enough” for the rate of transmission. This is fine for data networks but when sensitive components such as DACs and Pre-Amplifiers are involved, it will have an audible impact on sound quality. The Innuos PhoenixNET is the realization of Innuos’ philosophy of simplicity and signal purity applied to the network switch. Having started with improvements to the Ethernet ports’ clock on our Flagship STATEMENT, Innuos has now taken the concept to the next level with a completely new network switch design that focuses exclusively on audio use.
The Innuos PhoenixNET Reduces high-frequency noise through a simpler 100Mbps network switch chip with no power switching regulators. Connected through high-end Isolation Transformers to individual Amphenol RJ45 shielded jacks with no LEDs and complemented with EMI treatment to further prevent noise into the circuit. The Innuos PhoenixNET has two Statement grade linear power supplies designed by Mundorf Caps to individually power the OCXO clock and the mainboard, keeping the power path short with less opportunity for EMI contamination.
