The 9/12/15v 1.5A Low noise PSU is $325 which includes Express Post delivery to anywhere in Australia.

It runs from a large 2.5A external transformer. At the 9v or 12v setting is is actually good for about 1.8 A & at 15v the max is around 1.6A. It comes with a DC lead which I terminate with the correct DC plug to suit your device. It has a simple user changeable internal jumper setting to set the output to 9v, 12v or 15v.

Thank you very much, I will be placing an order soon.

Along with others who recently picked up an Aurliac Mini on sale, I'm also considering this as a power upgrade - especially after hearing comments including that the difference is "night and day", particularly if using the Mini's internal DAC (which is what I'll be doing).  I'm assuming though the difference you notice those is dependent on the other gear in your system.  On that front my set up is a lot less high-end than many others on these forums. Basically all I've done is connect my Mini by RCA to a Cambridge SR10 receiver that I have driving a couple of Advent Prodigy Tower II speakers that I picked up when I first started work a couple of decades back. Any thoughts on whether a power upgrade would provide any noticeable improvement in that kind of set-up or if the benefit only really kicks in when the rest of your gear is a bit more high-end? (not sure if this makes a difference, but I'm using the Mini exclusively as a source for tracks that I've stuck inside on a 1TB SSD - I'm not really into streaming services or setting up a NAS etc).

Scott,

 

Johnny Darko had some interesting thoughts on power upgrades to streamers. He might have even made some specifically about the Mini in fact (can't remember off hand). He was saying that in some cases, upgrading the power supply is more noticeable than a more costly upgrade to the DAC. I guess what I'm saying is, the Mini won't be the bottle neck and you can upgrade other stuff down the track. A Gieseler power supply is not too expensive the audiophile scheme of things. Good gear at reasonable prices pops up on SNA quite often so building a great system and not stupid money is doable. I guess it's a question of involvement. If you want to look at building up a system in the long term then I think a good PSU is not a bad place to start.

My very rough guide is that if the device is doing more e.g. the mini is running a drive, using the dac etc. compared to just being a streamer, then the power supply would give more benefit compared to stock supply.

I'll be running two minis (soon) with one upgraded supply. I'll put the LPS on the device I'm using the DAC as well, and the streamer only (feeding a DAC) I'll instead look at "fixes" like an IsoRegen, Singxer, Jitterbug etc.

Clay, I was reading about the SOtM SMS-200  http://www.sotm-audio.com/sotmwp/english/shop/sms-200/ (as it's looking like a combination or this unit and your DAC may well be the path to digital nirvana), and was interested to also read about their "smart" battery supply for it http://www.sotm-audio.com/sotmwp/english/shop/mbps-d2s/

A few reviews rave about it.  Given you are DaMan when it comes to high quality power supplies that, by all reports, make a huge bang-for-buck difference to sound quality, I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this approach to power supply!

All the best, Mat

Hi Matt,

I am a fan of SOtM products & use their PCI USB card in my server. The SMS-200 looks like an excellent unit too.

I sure their battery/PSU would be good too but not particularly good value at $400 US.

IMHO battery PSU's for digital units is a bit overrated these days as the latest ultra low noise regulators provide similar performance without the recharging hassles.

Thanks Clay.  Yes I agree - it'd need to be pretty impressive given the price!  

 

What would you recommend from your gear power-wise in a setup utilising:

- a mini computer (such as SonicTransporter) as a core for Roon or similar via Cat6 Ethernet to...

- an SMS-200 via USB to.....

- a Geiseler DAC via XLR to....

preamp>power amp>speakers>ears>brain ?
