Nice. I have a Surface Pro 4 so I’m excluded from the PCIe world
If I can’t hear a difference I’ll return it - I don’t need 2 additional power supplies in my system if they don’t improve anything to my ears.
I’ll get a pair of these: http://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-43_MC110CS.html
I’ll power the DAC side unit with an Uptone UltraCap LPS-1 that I have here not doing anything. Even though the TP-Link FMC has switching regulators inside, the LPS-1 is ‘off the grid’ so that may / may not have benefits.
I don’t expect it has worse components than my router anyway, so I don’t expect it to worsen sound quality than the current straight ethernet connection I’m using but some people haven’t had a good sonic experience and went back to the straight ethernet connection.
I’ll find out soon enough.
