Low noise power supplies, 5v, 9v & 12v.

Recommended Posts

Great news.

I was lucky to have member @AJ build me one a couple of years ago with dual output. He is in New Zealand now so that is not available AFAIK.

With the US$ where it is I think it is an excellent idea. We need Australian products for ourself.

My wishlist:

  • Choices in enclosure - especially if you are going down the DIY route (Which may or may not be a good business decision?) Also if someone has a Nuc, those of us with OCD want the boxes looking the same - for example: the iFi products and the Cyrus products.
  • One output is not enough. Maybe have a base model with only one output, but I agree with @@christosd 2 that many of us want to power more than one toy. E.g. usb/spdif, squeezebox touch, server/pc, so I think there is demand for models woth more than one output.

@@Chanh and @@Tasso what are your comments based on your experiences with music servers?

 

Not sure how  cabling works with all the different connection options out there?

 

 

The option for multiple  voltage output  will be most useful as would multiple outputs. Probably don't need more than 2 outputs but voltage selection for each would be very nice.  If the outputs used good quality connectors  that are easy  to get, building different power cables for different applications will be relatively easy.

 

Possibly should consider an unregulated option to connect with  with ATX style power  interfaces  such as HDPLEX  or generic pico  adapter. These provide their own regulation and perhaps cost and performance advantages  could be gained with  this approach.

Hi Clay. I've got a Keces DC116 - which with current exchange rates probably costs a touch over $500. It's dual power - 5v and 9v; both at 2A. 

 

If you can price your units under the $400 mark - my guess is that you would move a lot of them. The 5v and 9v model is perfect for powering a Squeezebox Touch and a Remedy reclocker (both of which I own).

Hi Clay

Great idea.

Would it make a noticeable difference on the Klein SE DAC

Cheers

Any chance of a +/-12v supply for us with phono stages that love clean + and - rails?

Great move I reckon--Pity no 24V 2/3A units though--I use that and have others ask me where to buy

 

Plenty of 2/3motor TT's that need that version to get rid of the Cheap Chinese Wall warts supplied

 

In time hopefully

 

Good one guys!

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.

OK I have taken some DC current measurements on my music server. It is using a Jetway mini itx M/B, Sotm PCI USB card, WD 3.5" HD & a DVD rom drive.

As expected there was a bit of a surge at startup & finally settled down at about 1.6A This is good news as it means the Dai-1chi  2.5A 16v AC external transformer I was planning on using should be fine with a bit of current reserve.

Changing to a SSHD & removing the DVD rom drive reduces  current drain more as well. Based on this the biggest model in my new power supply range would have, 12v + 12v + 9v (maybe a optional 5v as well) So on a average mini itx server build

you will have 12v to go into the DC M/B connection & then 12v or 9V depending in which Sotum card & an optional 5v? for the Paul Pang  USB card. What do you think? any other suggestions?

Hi Batty,

yes + & - 12v is no problem as that is what the Klein uses & I have that well sorted. Depending on the current drain it might be possible to use the Shunt version that the SE Klein uses. 

Wow, did not realise how popular good low noise power supplies would be. Careful - this may slow down Klein production! :)
