    Hi all…could I get some suggestions for some current POE switches that work with the ME system? We have tried 3 switches and all of them have clicked. Thanks.

    Edimax Long Range 8 Port PoE+ Gigabit Switch, Supports Long Range Upto 200M, Port-Base VLAN, QoS, Auto-detect PD, Total 130W (GS-1008P V2) purchased in June 2018. Worked great right out of the box for both Me-1 and Me-500 when connected to QU-SB or ab168 to Edimax to ME units. I use 5e cables.

    Notice that I said QU. If you are connecting to an SQ system, I’ve read that you may HAVE TO connect a 48k stagebox in between your mixer and the switch or do some other options that are beyond my knowledge.

    We just picked up 5 ME500’s and use this one.

    You might have found it already, but we have a knowledge base article on this: http://allen-heath.kayako.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/702/175/me-1-compatibility-with-a-third-party-switch

    If you’re hearing clicks with certain switches, the most likely reason is that they have a protocol of some kind running on the switch; if you’re lucky, you might be able to turn this off through the switch’s management interface. As the article says though, we recommend ‘dumb’ layer 2 switches, as these don’t have any ‘intelligence’ to interfere with the audio packets.

    Hope this helps

    – Jeff, A&H
