    I'd always verify with a voltmeter.....

    I'm sure the actual voltage is somewhere on the label too.

    This is what my friends sbooster showed on the label

    I have a photo of it but I have no idea how to attach the photo to The Message Board here.

    You can upload it to a free image hosting service like imgur.com then copy and paste the link here.

    That's too much trouble you just have to trust me that it said 24 volts on the sticker

    flickr is free and you can copy paste images effortlessly too.

    24volts sounds like that can be a bad mistake plugging it in!!

    I would not recommend purchasing from audio sensibility. I can see making the mistake once but twice in the same week!
  9. Kerwin515
    Yeah. Looks like a real rookie mistake.

    No worries! We believe you.

    Thanks again... just got my RS-20M up and running. The pic providing the location of the voltage adjustment was very helpful. I set it to 13.2v since Mytek/Sbooster had previously said that is a good number to be at.

    The PSU itself does hum a little bit, but it doesn’t seem to be an issue with the music playing at well below 80dB on my speaker system.

    Edit: put the PSU behind the glass door of the cabinet that holds my turntable and CD player, can’t hear any hum now.

    You must have amazing ears!! There is an ever so slight hum but even my "quiet" ventilation fans in my cabinet are more audible to a degree.

    I haven't tried but you can always play with different kinds of wires for the DC voltage feed to the DAC.

    Enjoy your music!! I think the next thing to test is different usb/spdif converters.

    I am definitely sensitive to all sorts of noises like that. It’s worst when it’s incredibly quiet outside, like this morning was, especially with cold and dense air. The hum does quiet way down as the PSU warms up, then the fan in my laptop is more prominent when the Astron is in the audio cabinet and there is some light ambient noise in the neighborhood.

    Very happy with USB for now... maybe eventually something like a Singxer SU-1 but probably have spent enough on stereo/headphone gear for a long time.

    Sbooster helps for sure. It’s now about 90% to the ps audio direct stream for than half the price.

    That's a bold statement!
