Are you going to only supply it in that enclosure?

For those of us with OCD - would it be available in the same size as your dac?

Hi Johannes,

yes it will be in that size enclosure. It will not power a Klein DAC or Klein pre so it not designed to match with them. I'm working on a very competitive price for this entry level psu so a bigger case & bigger matching PCB would certainly bump the price up quite a bit.

I'm just about to release a dual power supply as well & this will be in same case as the Klein ( maybe deeper though)

Sneak preview.

Boards finally arrived late yesterday,  one up & running today, passed all test with flying colours including thermal & short circuit - powering  my NUC as we speak.

Just finalising pricing & models. I will post more info in the next few days.

I am in cue when one is available...

Yes I do a 12v 1.5 A version. It uses a fairly big external transformer so is slightly more expensive than the standard version.

Cost is $325 which includes delivery.

I normally supply them with the correct DC plug/lead to match the equipment you are powering.

How big a transformer?

Bill - the Klein DAC's need AC input &  these new supplies will be DC output so not suitable. The Klein has a similar power supply to these that is build into the DAC anyway.

Willco - I can get a suitable external 24V AC transformer so a 24v DC output supply is definitely workable,   I will look into it as well.

Regards Clay

Did this happen? I also need a 24v DC supply

Yes 24 v 1A is no problem. I have actuall just done one for a German Phono stage.

Cost is $325 delivered & about one week lead time.

Regards

I have purchased a W4S Recovery USB Reclocker (RUR) box to be installed between my system server and DAC.  Up until now I had only tried the AQ Jitterbug and IFi purifier.  Whether these two products made an easily noticeable improvement in the SQ was an open question for me.  So I was not expecting much from the RUR based upon my experience with these bits for USB.  I have not heard The Regen or Intona.

 

Straight out of the box the RUR worked but I was not overly impressed initially.  After a few hours it started to blossom.  I was impressed with the noticeable musicality and the increase in the silence between notes.  The RUR comes with a low level light weight SWPS.  I thought can this go further so I quickly decided to try a LPS.  I ordered a 9 volt one from Clay.  It arrived today.

 

I plugged the LPS in and straight away I noticed an improvement.  I am not sure whether I am good listener and can analyse the fine details of what I am hearing.  I come at it more from a holistic perspective in the context of the overall sound.  For me with LPS in the chain I could immediately hear what I thought was more weight or depth to the start of a note.  Up until now I had not been aware of this aspect of what I was hearing.  This added to what was an already long decay of a note was very pleasing.  As well there is now even more silence than with the RUR on its own.  It is as if the notes are suspended in a vacuum.  The musicality of my system is now truly impressive.

 

So I say if anybody has the W4S RUR and is contemplating a LPS go for it.  Clay has one that delivers an outcome that you will be pleased with.  Clay tells me that it will improve over the next 60 plus hours.  I hope so.

John is sending me his W4S recovery.

I have a Regen USB with a linear power supply and a Intona Hi Speed Isolator

Will be doing comparisons with each and combinations

Will report on my and others findings

I will post these findings on a new forum

Geiseler Audio,

 

I have an LH Labs Pulse X Infinity I got off atsq and I am wondering if I can use your LPS with it!

 

I have a pic of the wallwart it uses and I have tested it with the 15V IPower, which mysteriously works with it.

Yes you should be able to use my low noise power supply with it - obviously it would have to be the 12 v version. Quite a few of my PSU,s are adjustable so may be your current one can be set to 12 v depending on the external transformer voltage.

@@Suopermanni > So any improvement using the iPower over the wall-wart? (Got my answer!)

 

But I would like to know: And, did you buy the iPower in Australia or sent overseas for it? Sorry about this... :hijacked:

Manufacturer's website states: Power Input: 12V DC - 650mA ~ 950mA depend on system load and sampling rate. It seems you got lucky as your current power pack is only rated at 0.6A Max (600mA). I would expect that performance would suffer if you were listening at higher levels and/or driving difficult headphones.

Yes, it turns out I was LUCKY. For a bit. Performance DID suffer before it safely shut itself down. Luckily, I changed it back afterwards! Well, going to get Clay's LPS.

Hi Clay,

 

I'm now the new proud owner of this LH Labs Pulse Infinity X which I will be using with an Aurelic Aries Mini so at some stage I will be looking for a 12v 1.5mA + 15-16v ?mA for the aries mini.

 

Do you make such a beast & if so, cost please to Adelaide.

 

Cheers

 

Matthew

Hi Clay,

 

just read post above, LH Labs Pulse Infinity power specs:

 

Power Input: 12V DC - 650mA ~ 950mA depend on system load and sampling rate

 

What happens if you feed it 1.5mA?

 

Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt,

A device only draws as much currents as it needs so a suitable power supply should be able to safely provide more current than the device is rated at. My dual supply has a current rating of 1.5 Amps (1500 ma) on each output so should be fine. The dual can be configured with 12v + 15v or 16v outputs so it would be fine to power both your devices.

Cost is $400 which includes delivery & two warranty. Lead time is normally just a few days.

Clay,

 

My dual power supply is deployed. I'm very happy with the supply for my microRendu (7.5v) and Media Converter 9v (fiber optic to ethernet). :)

I'm running one of Clay's "single" power supplies into my Aries Mini. it provides totally quiet and clean power and highly recommended.

Hi John,

Good to hear it has safely arrived & you are up a running. The main filter caps take a while to run in so it should improve a little over the next few days.
