Switch to real music
By improving power quality, network signal quality and TCXO technology, Bonn N8 improves the network signal quality. On Bonn N8, there is a total of 8 high quality gigabit Ethernet ports, which makes it possible to connect all audio devices at once. Through the network signal quality improvements from Bonn N8, it introduces significant improvement in music streaming playback through streaming service or NAS.
Revolution with innovation to make music more musical and emotional. Silent Angel Bonn N8 features low electrical noise and high anti-interference ability. It prevents data loss and electrical noise. As a result, it generates high quality network signals.
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, Bonn N8 is able to generate a more accurate network signal and provides a more stable (music) data transmission.
Improved main board design
The Bonn N8 incorporates two electrical noise isolation circuits, with a noise rejection of 17 dB, in its power circuit. Two electrical noise isolation circuits, with noise rejection rate of 20 dB, for its clock generation circuit. These noise isolation circuit ensures Bonn N8 will work in a stable state, and as a result, it generates stable network signals.
High permeability EMI absorber
Furthermore, to reduce noise from digital circuits, the Bonn N8 has a special chosen EMI absorber at the inner side of the bottom of the case to absorb the EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference) from the inner digital circuits and to make the network signal and clock circuit more stable and clear. This ensures Bonn N8 works more stable and generates more clear data signals.
The innovative value of Bonn N8
Comparing to a general network switch, innovation and creative technologies is the core value of Bonn N8. The resulting improvements can be seen and proven on the signal measurements. Engineers at Thunder Data found Bonn N8 network signal to be much better than that of a general network switch.
The quality of a network signal of the Bonn N8 is 90% better compared to a general network switch in jitter measurements. (lower is better). The noise filter in its power circuit, provides purified power. This results in purer network signals.
Usage of the Bonn N8 network switch
Light indicators at front panel including power, alarm, link status and link speed of 8 ports. Makes it convenient to know the status of all 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 affecting the quality of network signals. The power efficiency level is as high as rating VI and no load power consumption < 0.075W. Complete protection circuit design featuring short circuit, over load and over voltage protection.
The Bonn N8 is user upgradeable by swapping the original power supply for an audio grade, linear power supply. At first, this upgrade may seem overly expensive, but for sure the price/performance ratio only improves by doing so. Furthermore, we offer you an attractive combination price.
The KE-modified version (see 5th picture) contains 5 Audio Grade capacitors and multiple sheets to suppress unwanted resonances from the housing. It also contains 5 Vortex RJ45 Caps to terminate the unused ports. The results are much more lifelike musicians and instruments with plenty of body and presence plus more dynamics and a wider and deeper stage. This version is highly recommended in combination with a Farad Super3 Power Supply.

* From Switzerland：I had another test now with Bonn 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.
* From Singapore: 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.
