Thank you for the answer.

Ipower is 9v/1.5A
allo shanti is 5.2V/3A and/or 5.2V/1.2A (shanti has 2 outputs)

Ipower works great, but maybe is an upgrade possible with an even cleaner psu (shanti, ifi elite or another).

If you say shanti works, then I will testet it.

Im happy with the iusb 3.0. Its really bring the sound to be almost how I dream to be.

oh no I am sorry. it won't work. iusb 3.0 needs 9v psu. your Shanti is 5.2v so won't work.

if you want to upgrade your power supply to iusb3.0, you can try this

I am using it and it is way better than ipower

That's affirmative, iUSB3.0 requires a PSU that outputs 9V. Thanks!

I'm not sure about other PSUs, but iPower Elite even instead of iPower X makes quite the difference on iUSB3.0.

Are there any noticeable sound differences between the nano iUSB3.0 and micro iUSB3.0?

Both products affect sound is the same way, but the difference is in which one does more in the sense of audible changes and that's micro iUSB3.0. Hope this helps, thanks!

How would you compare iPowerX and iPower Elite? Both have the same noise floor according to specs.

iPower Elite has even better components and higher power supply capacitance, so it should make a noticeable change. Hope this helps, thanks!
