O2 AMP + ODAC - Page 155

post #2311 of 5248

Get the bigger one as per agdr's post. As hekeli said Headnhifi sells a 240v version with a 15v 500ma output. I dont know off hand where to source a larger one, but worth searching for anyway.

What about 1200mA? Would that do the job or can I not go over 1000mA?

You cash go over that, it still will work, but there may be no advantage to anything over 1000mA.

I'm only posting that because the shop is only 12miles away and I can't see a 1000mA version.

Cool, thanks. I'll wait though and see how I like the sound of the supplied supply first. I may not hear anything wrong.

Thats a DC supply, you need an AC.

You do not need a variable power supply, but since it can be setup to provide 12V, IMO it should work. The plug needs to be able to fit its receptacle on the amp, but I see it comes with an assortment of plugs.

I just installed this on my computer as a dedicated audio device hub:

I seem to notice a boost in quality coming from my ODAC in detail and dynamics, I'm not sure why, it could be my brain telling me stupid things again. I was having some issues with the ODAC and my motherboard's USB ports (major distortion after leaving it plugged in for a few hours, fixed by unplugging and replugging) and I think it may have been fixed with this hub, though it hasn't been long enough to confirm).

Oops. I made a mistake. This is the first.time I came across a AC/AC power supply. Sorry!

Yes that should work, though the fact they say "linear" in the description doesn't make any sense but that was probably just Maplin.  As long as it is an AC output it will be fine.

12v is too low, you ideally want 14v or higher, in the above unit the 15v output would be ideal.
