Silent Angel N16 LPS has two isolated zones for network traffic isolation. Physical isolation avoid ethernet traffic intereference, so that the most critical audio player to get rids of unwanted network traffic.
To have stable, low noise, fast response power source, N16 LPS is equipped with Silent Angel Forester linear power module. By using fully symmetric circuit (in both transformer and circuit), this Forester linear power module provides two isolated power sources, that meets the high frequency loading nature of switch circuit and clock circuit, feeding two separated 8 port switch modules.
N16 LPS isolates the clock source for each network zone. It has two well-powered TCXO modules for two isolated network zones, so that the TCXO can get rids of the power noise from switch circuit.
There are two typical scenario for N16 LPS to fit in your network environment:
1. Fully isolated zones 2. Two zones in series
As a service there is also a KE-modified version available. It contains 36 replaced and added Audio Grade capacitors, a Synergistic Research Orange Fuse, 40 Creaktiv Systems Mini Tuning Chips and multiple sheets to suppress unwanted resonances from the housing. It also contains 12 Vortex RJ45 Caps to terminate 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.
