  14. I did not want to hijack the "Idealish Server" thread so here is another which offers some first hand experience with some of the creations from the WA team. On my recent visit to Oz had a very enjoyable day hearing the Power Supply/Server creation from the WA crew on Tasso's impressive Accuphase/Magico system.I had already committed to the build of the modified JS2/Hashi on the advice of Tasso and Chanh but was looking forward to see if the money was well spent. We had on hand a Antipodes DX, WA crew Created Sever,Auralic sever various power supplies creation.I was also hoping to have an Aurender W20 on hand as well but a local agent let me down.I will have to purchase/try this one overseas....a real shame. We listened to the WA Crew server with my newly created modified JS2/Hashi and the DC37. This was the bench mark to which all others would be compared to and even though Tasso's system has changed considerably since my last visit it delivered in spades detail and dynamics. We listened at a loudness I am not used to but the system held up quite well.The Antipodes DX was then inserted for comparisons. As the owner of the DX I have been relatively happy with its performance but was quite surprised in Tasso system preferring the JS2/Hashi and WA Server by a reasonable margin of preference. Tasso's system with the DX inserted lost sound stage and dynamics.The DX rounded and compressed things which definitely may be suited to some but not for my tastes. We then removed the DC37 and inserted Kalliope paired with the WA Server .(I won't comment on this comparison as I am an owner of Kalliope).....other participants feel free to comment I know my tastes differ from others.... Next we connected the DX and Kalliope via the unpowered usb input. This is how I use my DX in my all Gryphon electronic system and while I thought it improved things slightly it still seemed to lack the dynamics the WA Crew Server and JS2/Hashi power supply displayed. We then powered the DX with the JS2/Hashi power supply and the improvement of dynamics and soundstage was immediately noticeable. Still quite confronting that a power supply can have such an impact but count me in as impressed. Comparison of the DX and WA Crew Server with JS2/Hashi was not done...but for me they offer very similar performance once connected to the JS2/Hashi power supply in my brief listen.....which says a lot as one has a very large price tag. A quick listen to the Aurilic server and JS2/Hashi power supply gave some quite good sound but lacked the polish,dynamics and soundstage that was on offer from the WA Server and DX. The WA crew of Tasso, Chanh, TJ, Don, JD (apologies if I missed anyone) have found the magic sauce for computer audio. For me the WA server and JS2/Hashi power supply is the first time a DIY creation has matched/equaled maybe even eclipsed the big boys creations, hell I even prefer the case to the DX....I cannot recommend highly enough their creations.If I had to start again I would copy their WA Server and go for the JS2/Hashi supply and be content that you would be getting some of the best CA that is available today. I now have to find an Aurender W20 which has a clock input and compare it to the King from WA ......I think this machine is the only one which may surpass it ...but I would not be surprised if it was eclipsed.....maybe a JS2/Hashi power supply , W20 and master clock may eclipse the best CD spinners....I know I am curious..... Once again great work lads and thanks for the impressive power supply I cannot thank you enough ...running the best Gryphon electronics can offer the JS2/Hashi power supply holds its own on sonic performance and striking looks ..I am looking forward to hearing this on my new system and seeing if the WA crew can improve their creations.... great work Cheers Jones
  15. Howdy. I have a question about power supplies. So, I've been listening to my second hand ODAC (rev A) for about 2 weeks now. Source is a Raspberry Pi 2. ODAC feeds my JAS SS amp and my Wharfdale Dentons. Occasionally, this makes me very happy. Objectively, I'm not entirely sure that I can hear a meaningful difference when I flick between this DAC and the built-in dec on my JAS solid state power amp. I can almost convince myself that I hear something of what people say about this DAC: a bit trebly, a bit 'sterile' but I am unable to A/B in a meaningful way due to differences in volume. The ODAC is quieter. In any case, on the advice of some forumite on some ancient thread SOMEWHERE, I picked up a little 5V 2A (right voltage I believe, amperage includes some headroom to the tune of several orders of magnitude) USB power injector and fed this to the ODAC. I AM able to AB this by just yanking the 3.5mm power input. In the 30s check I did last night before heading to the pub, I couldn't hear a whole lot of difference. So, a question for someone with some electronic knowledge: in the case of the ODAC (or in DACs more generally) should providing this power make a difference? If so, under what circumstances should it be audible or even detectable? Something to do with dynamic range? Cheers
  16. I have a friends Thorens MM 001 phono preamp that does not work. The unit is not marked with the power requirements, and the power pack supplied (by the shop) is marked as 9 Volt DC. Taking the lid off, I noticed that the circuit board power input is marked as 16 volt AC. Can anyone advise me if this correct, or mention the type of power pack supplied with their unit. I would be grateful for some advice, as mistakes can be expensive. Many thanks
  17. Hi There, I have a Scandyna The Amp but am missing a power supply, Scandyna themselves don't have these in spares anymore so can any of you suggest somewhere else that I may be able to source one? Also after a set of legs for the unit as well. Even If I can find somewhere that I can pick up an original power supply I am expecting that it it will be an expensive process so it would be great if any of you could suggest an alternative. The problem that I am finding is that it seems to be a very non generic item, it is 25V and has an unusual input also (image attached). Any ideas? Thanks for the help!
  18. I have been playing with digital volume control with a DAC straight into a power amp for a while now. I cannot flaw the digital volume control but after getting used to it, it's starting to sound a bit lean or meager, and I am starting to feel that I am missing something. If a pre amp function is to just sqeeze the volume to less than 100%, than why do some pre amps have huge power supplies and large capacitors? Am I missing something by bypassing the pre amp, and go from the DAC straight into the ower amp?
  19. Hi, A friend is bringing over an entry-level Stax 2107 setup from Japan for me Am looking forward to seeing if I like headphones after all.(So far I have by far preferred my speaker setup, but have only used $100 or so IEMs) The Stax systemcomes with the SRM-252S amplifier and a Japanese AC-DC converter: 100V 10VA to 12V 500mA, negative centre. Does anybody have any suggestions on what to do in order to be able to use it in Australia and Europe? Do I really need an AC-AC 100V-240V transformer, or would a (240V to 12V 500mA, negative centre) AC-DC supply do the trick? If so, any specific suggestions? Any experience from fellow members? Thanks, Daniel
  20. Hi, I have been growing into computer audio for the past year and I am thinking about building my final build. Looking at my parts list and doing some research I did come across quit a few positive reactions about using linear power supply's. I would prefer to have the possibility to demo some of these computer parts before buying them. I am a bit skeptical since I own a specialized USB card who doesn't seem to make a difference, tested an USB cable that doesn't seem to make a difference compared to a stock one, and had a breve experience with an Audiophilleo2 that didn't seem to make a difference either. If you have some hardware related to computer audio that you are willing to share/demo/borrow with me that would be highly appreciated.

  22. Have just finished building a 5v dc power supply for a music server project and thought I might share here. In anyone feels like building there own all the info is here for those who want to make an excellent upgrade to there raspberry pi, beaglebone, odroid (what I am using), or squeezebox etc. This supply can handle up to a 3A load depending on your heatsink choice and the regulators could be changed for different types if you want a higher current supplied. I must say this has made a very nice difference to the quality of sound over the standard switchmode supply. It has produced a sound that has greater clarity and less muddled than before. Hiigher frequencies are easier to listen to now and I can tell the difference between each strike of bells or cymbals (everyone is unique and different). The music also seems slightly more dynamic and realistic on the ears. I have attached the electrical schematic below. It basically just cascades 2 voltage regulators a 12vdc and a 5vdc. The 1st regulator produces 12vdc with fairly low noise level and the output from that feeds the 5v regulator that virtually eliminates any noise that was left, leaving a rock solid 5v supply rail. Regards Simon
