Low noise 9v, 12v & 15v 1.5A PSU

Recommended Posts

Low noise 9v, 12v & 15v 1.5A PSU

I’m not sure if everyone is aware of this model so just a quick bit of info.

It is very similar to my standard 5/7/9v unit but just with higher voltage outputs.

Price is slightly higher at $325 delivered due to the much larger 16v 2.5A external transformer.

I ‘ve rated it at 1.5A as that is the regulator rating but due to extra headroom with the large

transformer it is good for about 1.8A (at 9v & 12v) before current limiting chops in.

The 9v, 12v & 15v voltage output is user changeable via a PCB jumper setting.

Clay

So just to confirm, and hopefully not a thick question, if  I were to use this with a device that draws 12v then the internal regulators will allow it to happily  output up to 1.8a if required from the device that it is powering?

Yes I can do a 24v version but it is fixed output with no different voltage options.

1.4 A max 

Cost $325 delivered.

hey guys thanks for you support on this. I can hardly keep up with orders at the moment. 

:)

There are now 50+ of my low noise PSU's in the field now.

Just bench tested the 9/12/15v unit & at 9v it is good for 2A - not really designed to run at that current all day though.

Just got my 12V Geiseler LPS for my LH Labs Infinity X. Initial impressions are good, a rather more punchy sound that I've heard an ESS Sabre DAC produce apart from Audio GDs. Going to let it run for a bit and see what happens.

Okay, the LPS has made a noticeable difference in performance. Even if using Youtube weirdly enough.

Yes, Youtube is the first thing I check after upgrading power supplies :hiccup Just jokes.

LOL! Yeah, I know, right? Everyone knows Youtube has AMAZING FIDELITY.

Hi Clay,

Can you do a 12V 7A PSU for my Mytek Brooklyn?

Cheers

OK maybe 7 amps is overkill. Probably 4 amps will do it. Any chance of doing that?

 

This from the specs page.

Gents,

 

I know the Sbooster stuff in not state of the art, however if we refer to their power supply that they offer for the Mytek -

https://www.sbooster.com/botw-pp-eco-12v-132v/?language=en  - this unit is rated at 28 watts max so my simple maths suggest @12 volts = 2.3 or thereabouts.

Not wanting to butt my nose in but it is useful to look at other commercial offerings to see what they consider a sensible spec'.

Of course, if Clay can get more juice out of his unit that 2.2A then that's great - you'll have some headroom.

We referred to the Sbooster stuff when Clay made me my powers supply for the then newly released Auralic Mini. By referring to their spec' we had a ball park as to the spec's that Clay's power supply should meet or exceed. Result = brilliant sound and never missed a beat.

 

Just my 2 cents. Please ignore if you wish!

Andrew,

actually I do a 12v 4A version so that should do the job. I looks the same as the standard unit but has a nice external potted 12v 6A transformer so after regulation & loses is good for 4 Amps DC.

Cost is $350 delivered
