Today I did built my first Supercap psu, materials ordered at Bballas and followed his instructions.

 

It replaces a DIYINHK 0.8uV ultra low noise psu which feeds an Allo.com Kali reclocker on my Raspberry Pi.

 

Normally I use an Ian Canada FIFI II reclocker / isolator / DualXO board, all fed with seperate 0.8uV psu's.

This sounds better than the Allo.com Kali reclocker, probably because the Kali reclocker doesn't have an isolationboard between FIFO and XO-reclock stage.

For the moment the Ian's Canada FIFO II set is at Ian's home because I had some troubles with it, that is why I have Allo.com Kali reclocker for the time being.

 

As said, today I replaced the 0.8uV psu with the supercap powersupply, and, just started listening.

 

In one word: A M A Z I N G

 

It exceeds soundquality from Ian's Canada FIFO II kit, fed by 0.8uV ultra low noise psu's!

I notice improvements at all facets!

 

Here's my test setup:

 

 

 

Many thanks to Bballas for pointing me in this direction! For me this will be a gamechanger, now thinking on building a new dac, completely fed by supercap psu's.

 

 

Cheers to all, and keep up the good work! :beerchug:

 

Regards,

Alex

Hahahahahaha, first things first Balazs :wink_face: which means, listening A LOT :D

 

Yesterday evening listened again, after 2 days of burn-in time I really was very pleased, or, maybe say, shocked about it's sonic performance!

It definitely performs M U C H better than the Ian FIFO II kit, powered by 2 R-Cores, 2 EMI/RFI filters and 2 HQ LT3042 psu's!!!!!!

 

I was used to the Ian's FIFO kit-sound, which was overwhelming good, but this takes it to another level, again :bigsmile_face:

The easiness of which it plays the deepest basses and the enormous tightness of it, and all of that with such a power reserve, it's almost alien.

Voices again gives me gooseflesh, all the details never heard before, in a musical matter, soundstage width, depth and highth, precision, it's lifelike.

I dare ANY analog set to compete with it, any day, any hour.......

 

I can't imagine how it will sound next saturday when it has completely burned-in, and, how will Ian's FIFO II kit perform when powered by this beauty???

 

For sure I will solder a few other ones and let them burn-in so they are ready for use when Ian's FIFO II kit again arrives at my doorstep :bigsmile_face:

 

 

Cheers  :beerchug:

 

P.s. Balazs, you were absolutely right when saying this is the best you've ever heard, in my opinion it is too!!! Thanks again for this great opportunity!!!!

30mA only per DA-M1 and maybe a few hundred mA's for outputstage....

Not sure what you meant with your post...

 

Supercaps / Ultracaps is about SQ and not about delivering lots of Amps.
