Ethernet cable upgrade for GLM 3 adapter (GLM 4.1 software)

Ethernet cable upgrade for GLM 3 adapter (GLM 4.1 software)

I am currently setting up a new studio in a old house, I have new ground wires and earth fault circuit breakers.

I am re-cabling everything to balanced and/or shielded cables to eliminate as much noise as possible/ reduce digital jitter/ maintain steady audio quality. I also have power conditioning, not the cheap type.


My question is, should I change the ethernet cabling from my GLM adapter to the monitors and upgrade them from the Cat5E UTP that comes with the GLM kit?



which ethernet cable type is the best for best possible signal and noise reduction for the GLM kit?


Cat7 STP

Cat7e STP?


or is it just stupid to shield the ethernet cable?

Nahw, there's no reason to upgrade the ethernet cables.
Ethernet only carries our control data, no audio.

Shielded ethernet cables are a good idea per se, but any shield is only as good as the ground on the router.
And If you check you router, you'll find it isn't grounded. (unless it's a cisco for 2 grand)
