- the sMS-200ultra with a switch modification unit
- NETGEAR GS105NA 5-Port Gigabit Ethernet switch (5, 7, or 12V)
- cost of shipping the switch back and forth to SOtM
- labor to enabling the sCLK-EX 1 clock point, and
- SMB connector installation and cables
Why should you modify?
- The sMS-200ultra has the sCLK-EX clock with 4 points. The sCLK-EX can be used for all digital devices that require clock signals such as DAC, USB host card, CD player, PC main board and LAN controller.
- Two points are used by the system internally (sCLK-EX2425) and two points left
free to clock other digital devices (eg Ethernet switch).
What is the modification?
- Enable one point (clock)
- Replacing 2 x regulators in the Ethernet switch
- Replacing the capacitors in the Ethernet switch
- Add SMB connection (coaxial RF connectors)
This modification works to eliminate noise coming from the Ethernet connection and improves/cleans the sound as a result.
sMS-200ultra is the newest generation of audio network player with a built-in ‘Media Player Board’ developed by SOtM.
The sMS-200ultra is similar to the sMS-200, and boasts a dedicated ARM processor board, purpose-built to support only audio. The difference lies in the addition of the upgraded sCLK-EX clock board – in a compact and specially-designed case. The clock is one of the most important factors that determines the sound quality your digital devices, and the inclusion of the clock in this unit will improve your entire system – giving an overall solid performance to your listening experience. This means that you get a custom-built product focused on creating the perfect audio sound performance with strong functionality, with none of the performance problems and deterioration of sound that can occur with ready-made processor boards from other manufacturers.
