it is quite clear you are running your mouth off here; I think you will find that your MOBO power supply does indeed have some very large lowZ electrolytic caps, and the arrow too, maybe not in the signal path, which as far as I can tell this doesnt either, but it is a FACT that ceramic caps, polymer caps and film caps either do not come in a large enough capacity, or if they do, the voltage rating is too low to be of any use in an amp, in a digital circuit or localized reservoir maybe, where the power is only 5v max. oscons scome in 20-25v rating when they are only 50-100uf, but once they get large like you need in main PSU reservoir caps, they go down to only 6v or so, 200u maybe 10v, but that is of no real use in a main PSU cap, you need 1000uf at least and in your mobo, more again
I build more sophisticated dacs and amps than this at home for my own use and they still use electrolytic caps in the power supply.
its quite easy to spend upwards of 50 dollars on a large low Z electro for high powered amps cheap??
this is where forums like this become dangerous, people read up on some technical details and all of a sudden they are experts
yep as I thought, just looked at your link, its the MOBO, with organic polymer caps, just like this DAP uses in the same positions, they can use these because logic level circuits are low voltage, max 5v and mostly only 1.8 and 3.3v, but the power supply that supplies thejuice for this board you proiudly parade will without a doubt use electrolytic caps
Well I read you as saying w/o them you can't have 'any of the trappings of modern life'. Perhaps I read you in the wrong context, just read what you said and responded w/ examples to the contrary. But yes, here is a view of my powersupply showing two larger electrolytics and pretty much solid caps everywhere else. Thats a 750w power supply. How much juice is this Colorfly supposed to output?
