  1. SOtM smS-200 unveiled at Munich Hi-End

    Here is how I use my single ps in series powering Brooklyn DAC. Here is where you'll find them. http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/vendor-s-bazaar/310402-fs-ultra-low-noise-power-supply-lt3045-based-pcb-2.html

    Thanks! JS-2 with Stammheim's single ps got to be good! ๐Ÿ˜Š My thoughts with a LPS-1.2 powering sMS-200Ultra is similar. I plan to use Alexey's 12v/1A board post LPS-1.2...if it will work that is. Otherwise I will go for Stammheim's single ps in series. I have another LPS-1.2 coming that I will use in a Ghent JSSG DC Y-split with Kelvin output shunt regulators, feeding Aqvox switch and BluWave's GI Spdif output.

    I found it thanks! ๐Ÿ˜Š So, with 12v it is around 0.7 - 0.8A, but could according to @ClothEars kick up to 1.2A during boot-up. Does your sMS-200Ultra never reach >0.8A during a split second? Seems that LPS-1.2 is a plausible power supply. Do you still use JS-2 or any other one for it right now?
  4. Indeed, but di not miss her latest album. It is great as well! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    @MayfromSOtM I have a couple of question regarding SMS-200Ultra. 1. Is it possible to use BubbleDS Next (OpenHome) to control Tidal with SMS-200Ultra? 2. Do you know if Uptone Audio LPS-1.2 (7v, 9v or 12v/1.1A) is sufficient to power the SMS-200Ultra? Best regards, Micael
  6. Thanks! I haveยดnt noticed that beta 5.3 with Aries Mini is more power hungry than x4, but it could be a different story with Aries Femto of course. If worse comes to worse I will go after a pair of Stammheim LT3045/3A boards in series for the Aries Femto.
  7. But you can add an external HDD to the Aries femto right? I thought I read somewhere that the 12v/1.5A minimum was with an external drive (HDD). Maybe...just maybe....it could pull below 1.1A without an external drive? (fingers crossed) I would really appreciate if you could try it out and report back @pl_svn. I am ready to change out the Aries Mini, but are currently standing on a cross-road between the SOtM SMS-200Ultra and the Aries Femto. I would actually prefer Aries Femto due to several reasons.
  8. I pulled the plug on a LPS-1.2 yesturday and looking forward to give it a try. My grand plan is to use it powering my Aqvox switch-8 plus BluWave galvanicly isolated Spdif output (ISO Regen plus LT3045 in series is serving USB input power). Gophert csp-3205II floating SMPS as a feeder supply and shunt regs with Kelvin output close to the devices (using Ghent JSSG Y-split with 4v drop-down). I might also buy another LPS-1.2 if Auralic Aries femto is possible to power with one LPS-1.2? As far as I can tell the Aries femto is 12v/1.5A min with HDD installed. I will use no HDD since I am using cloud/streaming services only. Anyone knows for sure how much current the Aries femto pulls without a HDD?
  9. Nice and handy gadget. It probably got a boost-and-buck converter inside of it so I would'nt havet any high expectations what it can do in terms of SQ. More of a practical swiss army knife. I just ordered another swiss army knife. One that is both practical and potensially good for SQ. The Uptone Audio LPS-1.2. Looking forward to putting it to the test by beginning of March! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  10. One small step for man! ๐Ÿ˜Š Hiding cables will have to wait for another day. My fiber connection is not working at the moment (will be running on Monday) so my iPhone SE (4G)>Lightning adapter>ISO Regen>BluWave>Brooklyn DAC is my only entertainment between my home styling efforts. I was pretty satisfied with my kitchen dining corner styling though! ๐Ÿ˜Š I celebrated it with a Mexicana microwave pizza and a glass of Zenato Ripassa. I was worth it! ๐Ÿ˜Š
  11. Enjoying a different kind of tweak. Wireless mood lights. I am feeling kind of pink today! ๐Ÿ˜
  12. Yeah, you gotta be old doing DIY and using a solering iron! If you told us you where thirty we wouldโ€™nt beleive you! ๐Ÿ˜
  13. Mid- move glimpts! ๐Ÿคญ It will improve vastly tomorrow. Promise! ๐Ÿ˜
  14. BTW. I got a new pet. It is working its ass off in my new appartment! ๐Ÿ˜
  15. Instead of writing it all again, here is my first impressions with 2-prong ac mains: http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/vendor-s-bazaar/310402-fs-ultra-low-noise-power-supply-lt3045-based-pcb-5.html#post5343475 ๐Ÿ˜Š
