[Siltech] Royal Signature Network Crown
Streamed digital music sounds best through a wired – as opposed to wireless – connection. Royal Signature Network Crown is designed for supreme audio quality, thanks to its 4 pure S8 monocrystal conductors, Teflon and Wide-range shielding, and impedance-matched RJ-45 connectors.
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 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.
