In the very compact switch category, I'm a big fan of the NetGear GS108T. It's a small 8 port managed switch that will allow you to disable the EEE features, which their other Prosafe models will not. About $60. I have two of them in my recording rack.

But the fact of the matter is that just about any gigabit ethernet switch will work if you are not running a mixed network. I.e. not running video, or other internet traffic, print servers, etc... on the same network. An unmanaged switch used exclusively for Dante will work fine also (as long as you can disable the EEE/powersaving/Green ethernet features.)

Anyone else worried by external supplies?

They can be a PITA, the small port count POE models have particularly large power supplies.

Iím most worried about the supply being easily disconnected, and how to manage and place those supplies in racks.

Sticky back Velcro works well for that sort of thing both in securing wall warts and securing the mini DC supply plugs.

You can use a short extension cable from the supply to the power inside the rack, so the weight of the supply doesn't make it fall off the receptacle.

If you're not locking down your wall warts or better yet, replacing them with something that can be mounted, you're just being lazy!

I just use Tie-Wraps to hold the blocks to the power strip. Drilled a few holes in the shelf for them to pass through.
Your way looks prettier, but you've never seen the back of my processing rack.... There's a door there for a reason..
Other than Sticky Paws. Doors got installed after sabotage attempts at a "Battle of the Bands" last century.

Not sure I'd recommend an LED driver - those are designed to be constant current, and can be a bit variable in actual voltage depending on the load.

I agree that the GS108T is a great little switch.  I keep a pair in my pelican.  However, I've started to migrate them to GS110TPv2, the POE version.  It's slightly larger but can power Avio and similar adapters. 

What I've learned with the Netgear lines is that the Smart Managed Plus products are no bueno with Dante, but the Smart Managed Pro products are good to go.  One other note is that it's nice that they ship with the EEE off, so for Dante only, unicast networks there is zero configuration needed.

One solution is to use a DC power distribution unit. I replaced all the wall warts on my Sennheiser gear by doing that. I just snipped the wall wart off and wired directly into the DC distribution unit. No weight, no worries. It was rocksolid from the day I installed it until the day I moved to different equipment
