Can we see some photo how it looks inside the PowerStation?
Great work, iFi friends. Looking forward to getting one in my office!
We should have something available soon.
I spy three MOVs (Metal Oxide Varistor), is the Power Station's surge protection sacrificial? I first learned about MOVs here: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-surge-protector/
iFi kindly sent me a unit and I have to say it's impressive. It's huge! And heavy, too. As far as build quality is concerned, this is really top notch. I haven't been able to test its noise-cancelling ability yet, but I should be able to provide you with some feedback on that in a few days, as soon as I return home and I lay my hands on my gear again.
I always thought those were supposed to be detrimental to audio?
Edit- although I learned that the PS Audio power units have them, so maybe not?
Has anyone seen any reviews on these yet or they too new. Doesn't seem to be much info out there as yet
I'm a fan of the iFi stuff, really love my Raspberry Pi Power adapter and nano USB box. Magic stuff so really interested to see how good these are.
As usual, it depends.
Something should afloat soon.
My video review is going live Friday (those reading this after Friday AM, it will just play here):
Ulala, getting jiggy!
A few shots and some shallow initial impressions:
I have only spent an afternoon in my home using the iFi Powerstation with my humble set up, i had initial doubts about the technical esoteric wizardry of it all. But color me impressed so far.
A few sonic aberrations which were distinct to my ears whilst playing music before - seem to have been addressed through the use of the iFi PowerStation.
But i still want to learn more about this device.
More to come...
2). *a bit garbled.
Still early days. My home system is a fairly basic but decent Onkyo.
With the iFi PowerStation: initial impressions -
Before with a standard power strip: it is like the difference between a low powered basic dap - when you have to turn up the volume a lot to get ‘everything’ but it is not satisfying, not powered enough. And the resolution is falsely there,
If at all.
Even with the volume turned up bits of music would still be recessed or smeared somewhat.
With the iFi PowerStation...a parallel could be that the hone system is akin to a decent dap with oodles of power and better internal shielding etc. I am probably using 1/4 less volume and hearing more intricacies of the music. It is Like the benefits of a totl dap and totl IEMs.
Less volume, more music, lower floor noise, more resolution.
It is like a choke point has been fixed in my system.
I don't know about such improvements to sound, I haven't been able to hear any. What I could hear, though, was a bit of reduction in the background noise. My system is plagued by noise for some reason. Well, the PowerStation takes some away. It's now so quiet that I can only hear it when there's nothing playing using super-sensitive IEMs. Even if I can't hear any other improvements, the reduction of noise alone is impressive in itself.
