  1. Does anyone have a LPS with enough power to feed 3 LPS-1 for sale ? Must have 230 VAC in. Maybe a HDPlex ? Or a 12 VDC Sbooster is preferred ?
  2. Finally, about a month after receiving my JS-2 and MMK from Alex, I was able to be home, have the tools, and the time to do the installation. Here are some of my thoughts... THE GOOD 1. I've just turned on the Mac Mini (late 2014 PCIe Flash) plugged into the JS-2 and it does sound really good (I can't quantify the improvement, but it's definitely there)! 2. Fantastic service and support from Alex (Superdad). I had a few questions over the past few weeks, initially with the order, and then some clarification questions, all of which Alex responded very quickly to! 3. Really nice build quality on the JS-2 (see picture below). I personally would have preferred not to have any text on the front fascia, but no biggie. COULD BE IMPROVED 1. I consider myself reasonably "tech comfortable", but even so I have to admit that I put off the installation project more than a couple of times because of the rather scary-looking documentation - granted, probably every step needed is described nicely by Alex in the little booklet, but it's in very fine print (a tad challenging for my nascent presbyopia), and there are no pictures! Not one (well, except for the cover photo)! 2. Having said the above, Alex did very kindly send me emails with iFixit links, for the tear-down (first part) of the installation. However, one will still have to read the documentation very carefully to figure out the second part, as it (of course) isn't on iFixit... 3. What made it a tad more worrying was that the documentation was obviously prepared some years ago - the very first line says "Install this product only in a 2010, 2011, or 2012 Mac mini". Alex did clarify in an email that it would work fine on my 2014 Mac mini, and did also describe some of the differences between the documentation and what I would have to do for my newer unit, but it did add to my fears (and the complexity)! 4. Another problem was that the Torx 6 Security bit, which is required to open the late-2014 Mac mini, is not included in the toolkit that Alex sends out, so I had to purchase it from iFixit separately. 5. There is no documentation at all as to how to use the JS-2. At first I didn't worry because, after all, there aren't that many connections! However, for the first few minutes after turning it on my Mac Mini refused to start up, until I figured out that the "sense" cable was loose, and also that I had to have the little switch at the back set to "sense", and that the DC cable had to be connected to the DC-2 output (in hindsight it is obvious, since it is the output closest to the "sense" input)... SUMMARY In summary though, I have to say that the actual installation process is very, very easy to do - it just looks difficult to those of us accustomed to having pictures to follow-along to! The resulting sound quality improvement (at least to my "freshman" ears) also sounds pretty good! And again, Alex was fantastic in being very prompt and helpful with his email replies! I've provided some photographs of my installation below, as it may be helpful for others in the future (do note that in the second-last picture the switch/sense is set wrongly - I took that photo while trying to figure out what was wrong). Art p.s. As mentioned, for the first (teardown) phase, I used this guide from iFixit:
  3. I'm selling a mint condition Vinnie Rossi MINI PURE-DC-4EVR power supply. If you're reading this ad, you already know this is one of finest PSUs out there, due to its isolated, ultracapacitor design. This unit is set to 9V, and is rated to deliver 2.5A continuous output current (max) / 5A transient current delivery (< 1 sec.) These units are out of stock from the manufacturer, and rarely go on the used market. I am only selling mine because I am consolidating components, and had one surplus. Asking price is $600. Price includes free shipping (within continental US). I will entertain international offers, but buyer bears the shipping cost, and any PayPal fees. Payment via PayPal F&F or Wells Fargo Sure Pay.
  4. Hi, New to the forum here. I used to serve my music (stored in NAS) from my laptop running JMC via USB to my DAC (LKS MH-DA003 unmodded) but have stopped now as the laptop has packed and I need a new server/streamer device. I am ready to take the plunge to purchase the sotm sms-200 and due to budget constraint that I can not afford the well-known more expensive LPS such as Ultracap LPS-1 etc at this stage. I read from somewhere (probably from this forum) that owners (sms-200/ultra and microrendu) have good results with the less expensive r-core transformer type LPS e.g. zerozone and teradak for less than $100 (£80). As I never owned a LPS before and I need advice which specific zerozone/teradak LPS model I should get and to help understand what specific voltage/amp requirements for the sms-200. I have read that some used a 12v LPS for the sms-200 and i produces better sound but I wonder will it cause damage to the sms-200 due to the 9v-vs-12v. If not the r-core type, are there any good Chinese made LPS that are not that expensive and are good with the sms-200? Thanks in advance for your help.
  5. Hey there. I have a PS-1 in mint condition for sale with three modules (and cables) included. It's modular design allows up to four devices to be powered at once, and they can even be different voltages. The PS-1 has four power zones in back. Each power zone holds a power module. Each power module can be set to one of four voltages (5v, 9v, 12v, 15v) and can power one device. I bought brand new from Wyred 4 Sound and have used it to power up to three different devices myself, including Chord 2Qute, SOtM sMS-200, and SOtM tX-USBultra. It's bloody brilliant, but I recently sold my sMS-200 and 2Qute, so I really only need a power supply for the tX-USBultra. Retail on the PS-1 with three modules is $700, plus shipping. I am looking to get SOLD $500, asking buyer pay PP fees and shipping. Pics up shortly. Thanks for looking!
