Anyone tried other SFP optical switches besides the Cisco and Ubiquiti recommended and used by Peter and audio?

We also tested Buffalo BS-GS2016/A SFP switch, TP-Link SFP switch, HP SFP switch, and TP-Link FMC.

A Japan audio magazine also tested SOtM sNH-10g with Lumin X1.

I also recommend QNAP SFP switch (QSW-1208-8C).  I never expected it since my unit came FOC when I purchased my QNAP NAS.  I think this is the best I encountered because I love the fact that this is a 10Gb / 1Gb switch that allows you to use both 10Gb and 1Gb SFP transceivers.

I am planning to install 10Gb NIC card in my music server and then 1Gb transceiver to Lumin.

I am still struggling with the Audiophile Optimizer 3.00 Beta 38.  Once I got it stable, i will implement the 10 Gb.  There are plenty of Intel X520 cards available on eBay and these are relatively cheap.
