Headphone Pro - Power Supply questions

Can any one shed some light on these questions ?

1. if a good quality 12V a.c. power supply will make a difference to the sound of the Headphone Pro ?

2. where to find one ?

3. where to source a modified pinky PSU for the x-can v3 ?

4. anyone heard about the upgraded 12V a.c. PSU from Russ Andrews ?

This is what I just ordered as a temporary solution :

Mascot 230V - 12V a.c. supply - Will this be good enough ? The trouble is my location uses 220V a.c. but I cannot find one that takes 220V a.c. mains supply. Most are for 230V or 240V

Thanks in advance.

fkclo you may want to check into the Little Pinkie, it is a 12 volt a/c w/ 2.5 amps. Mike also makes a 12 volts dc. Both are available in US or EU supply voltages.

Thanks, mrarroyo. I have sent an email. It looks like what I need is similar to the Little Pinkie V3i, but I think I would look at 1 - 1.5A current ( Goldpoint said 1A normal, but 0.75A - 2A works o.k.).

The trouble is it seems his PSU are all for 230V a.c. and not sure if he can make one for 220V a.c.

Will see and report back.

received this message from Arn,

Actually, better modifications than earlier planned.
now:


Significant updates:

1) Now using two FET Input I/Cs, one per channel,
instead of only one bi-polar input dual I/C.

2) We are using a new internal power supply. Another first!
It is a Constant Current Sourced, Shunt Regulated Power Supply!
Wow! Really Great!

The great increase in clarity & detail, & their mini V SA got me hyped.. My DT48 is already extremely detailed & resolving with my Yamaha, so I'm expecting big things.. I hope I'm not disappointed as I was with the HR-2..

What say the included isn´t high quality?

It´s funny how we so often are searching for ways to spend more money on new gear

If you are referring to the HR-2, I think it's really over priced. Sounds like a 4-5 hundred dollar amp IMO..

thinking about changing the power adapter for the goldpoint headphone pro. I couldn´t imagine they would go ultra cheap on that one while upgrading the internal power

Not sure. I emailed Arn & asked him if I would need the external PS. He doesn't go into a lot of detail.
