    Did a 3v test . Def clipping over 12 o'clock with the A20. Qobuz BBC so Elgar cello conserto -Jean-Guihen Queras. The bass goes deeper, more clear with the 2v setting.

    2V is the green colour lights at start up , correct?
     
  4. greenblured
    No, 2v is blue. 1v is red, 3v is green.

    My manual has the colour coding wrong, it states 1V red, 2V green , 3V blue. My ears tell me your suggestion is right, but I wanted to ask and make sure I m not going crazy!

    The cycle goes; red-blue-green.

    Big improvement for Qutest?

    Uptone LPS 1.2 !

    Chord should make an external power supply for the Qutest with a matching chassis. I’ve read so many posts on this thread about users finding an after-market LPS that makes the Qutest sound better, and I imagine there is some validity in their claims.

    I’m still using the stock wall-wart, and I suppose at some point I might try an alternative; but since tweaking the Qutest is so popular, Chord could make some money.

    Depends on the grid. For me I see no good reason to 'upgrade' the ps. The grid is dead solid with no spikes or outakes ever. Unstable grid- go battery.

    The manual is definitely correct - 1v red, 2v green, 3v blue.

    Thanks for clarifying and sorry if I created confusion.

    So would you say that iPower 5V should be used in combination with AC iPurifier? Have you tried to use them separately? Is this combination distinctly better than stock ps? Thanks)
