Yup. It's not subtle, is it?

It will get better once it has 200 hours on it, too. Put a Shunyata Ethernet cable from EtherREGEN to your streamer or network bridge, and it will be notably better than it is now.

Default "Audiophile" ethernet switches

Currently I’m using a Chord Company Shawline 0,75m ethernet cable from ER to streamer. And an Audioquest Cinammon 0,75m from ISP fibre router to ER. Working really well. Maybe I can try one from a seller.

Yeah, if you can get one from a seller to try, it will definitely be worthwhile. I did extensive competitive benchmarking of Ethernet cables back in 2019 vs. the beta versions of what are now the Shunyata Ethernet cables. Even the entry-level Shunyata Venom Ethernet cable blew everything I had in for benchmarking completely "into the weeds", including my Audioquest Cinnamon, Belden Cat6A, Supra Cat 8 and rented-in AQ Vodka and Wireworld Starlight CAT 8. And...it wasn't even close.

Shunyata Alpha Ethernet is a great Ethernet cable to start with as it has the Cmode (common-mode noise) filter on it.

Hello André
We are almost neighbors (also from Portugal, Oeiras, Porto Salvo) 😏
I am really also interested in this subject, and following good advice here from Puma Cat. I was calling today to Alex from Uptone to order an ER, when I saw this/your thread. I would like, if possible to get some input about the shipping and customs. As I am not able yet to make private messages..., here is my email rmpribeiro@netcabo.pt
I would be really thankfull and happy to have a short chat with you.
