    I have an Acopian as well. While it does indeed provide clean power I believe the magic sauce in the LPS-1 has mainly to do with how it eliminates leakage loops.

    If you are looking for a way competent LPS...look here....HD-PLEX.com.   Multiple outlets of DC voltage (5-19 volts) ...using XLR connector.

    I use one to power all my digital components....it's built like a Brick Schiit house...
     
    Cheers!

    Does anyone know if these jacks are suitable for a diy add on onto the Singxer SU-1. I will  be making my own back plate.

    Not sure what the EF means.

    Looks like the exact part you need plus a plate....but it seems crazy when the one Kitsune offers is less than $30....not worth the time to re-invent their addition...unless you kinda wanta DIY anyway...which I can appreciate as well...

    I got the Kitsune kit this weekend and installed it without any issues.  Its much nicer than my DIY solution.  
     
    After reading about the benefits of a star quad wiring configuration though, I may mod this mod and see if it makes a difference.  Man does it ever end!

    I ordered that same kit.  I will be ordering my Uptone ISO Regen with an LPS-1 power supply.  I plan to power BOTH the SU-1 and ISO Regen with the LPS.  
     
    I only wish that Kitsune had used a threaded DC socket so that I could use a "locking" connector.  I'd like to have the option of "screwing" my DC barrels together.    ....kinda like this.

    Hello,
     
    and thank you for your interest.
    The changes are numerous, in a nutshell : EMI filter, more capacitance, better regulation.
    In the end, better sound as said before and I can hear this upgrade even with USB isolator/reclocker (i.e. Intona / Schitt).
     
    The cost is 150 Euros.

    I placed my order for an Uptone ISO Regen and LPS-1.  Looks like a few of us on this thread are going down this (or a similar) path.   
    @Energy I'm looking at you!  I also ordered a few parts to make a custom 5V DC cable to split the LPS-1 output to power the ISO Regen and Singxer.

    I received my Uptone LPS-1 power supply today and installed the Kitsune DC adapter kit.

    I removed the IEC inlet, but chose to leave the OEM power supply in place.

    There's a big hole where the IEC inlet used to be.

    I needed a 3' long DC power cord, so I mocked up one myself. Fits the Kitsune "block off" plate just fine.

    Here's a view of the finished installation.

    Installation was pretty straight forward. However, there are lots of tiny torx and hex fasteners. You've got to have the right tools for this job!

    So how does it sound. Frickin' amazeballs!
    My initial impression with just a few songs is that the bass is improved significantly. More sparkle up top and a seriously "black" background. I'm a happy camper!

    Congrats! I also have been enjoy similar mod (also replaced the LD1086 regulator along with 5 caps on the main board) for the past two weeks with similar impression.

    I'd like to know more about your changes. Got any pix to share?

    I used Belleson SPM17 regulator to replace the stock LD1086, and used Nichicon KA 25V 1000uF to replace the 5 stock caps. Still trying to find out how to attach pictures...:angry:

    [​IMG] Well, after searching how to attach pictures for the past 30 min, I don't think that function is available for me to use. I am going to see if I can send you the pictures via PM...PM sent with pictures...

    @T Bone very happy to hear the LPS-1 helped to improve on the sound coming from the SU-1. It's really hard for me to understand why or how the LPS-1 does it. The star quad dc cable I made further improved things! I'm going to replace the internal SU-1 cable tomorrow as soon as I can find my soldering iron. Things may get ugly with some serious cursing given my less than adequate soldering skills!

    I am posting these pix for @elan120 - you can see his upgraded caps and the changed voltage regulator chip

    Hey T-Bone,

    Where do get all your "shorting caps" from???....never have seen them for BNC and Clock inputs...Another effort to clean the signals...no?
