Thank you SurFi. I'll probably go for the Supra CAT 8, as it is reasonably priced. If I notice an improvement, I may later explore more expensive ones, but no rush for that.
Going for CAT 8 should future proof me for at least.... 6 weeks before 8a comes out ).
If I do end up with the LPS-1, I'll try sending back my 7v MCRU to get it reconfigured/updated for my 12v router. I don't know if they can easily do that, but as they have already so many variants of the same basic model, I don't see why not.
You had said 'switch's' which I took to mean the ethernet switch..I was referring to a basic LPS with respect to that type of a switch. Your MCRU is certainly no slouch or basic by any means!!!
Definitely update us on whether and how your reconfigured MCRU makes a difference feeding another component in the chain vs. the standard included wall wart/supply.
As for the Supra CAT 8 cables, GO FOR IT. They have already demonstrated a real improvement over the more basic LAN cables I was using. I'm curious to hear how they perform within your system.
