Product review: English Electric 8Switch – HiFi+ 185 Sept 2020

Reviewed in August, 2020

“The final contrast I made was between the English Electric and a Netgear GS108 with a Longdog Audio linear power supply, this proved to be the closest match of the lot but with an orchestral piece the 8Switch delivered distinctly sweeter highs and stronger melodic drive, this time invoking an air baton out of thin, er, air.
I think it’s safe to say that the 8Switch does the English Electric brand credit, it’s not quite a Lightning but it is an important contribution to audio streaming fidelity and that in its own small way will enhance the lives of music lovers far and wide. The fact that it does so in an attractive compact box that doesn’t threaten polar bears makes it all the more appealing.”
