    I would love everyone to contribute their thoughts, opinions and advice regarding building the ultimate PC transport device: e.g.
    transport fanless cases, (or not!)
    transport/i2s ocxo clocks,
    transport USB/EAN/COAX/OPTICAL/i2s/XLR (etc.)
    transport LPSU/SMPS
    transport mainboard ocxo clock,
    transport CPU/memory/SSD/HDD requirement,

    ... please help me (& others) to build their own personal transport for music audiophiles everywhere - many thanks!

    hi... what cost silence (i.e. reduced ripple)?

    the HDPLEX 400W ATX Linear Power Supply (ATX) has a rated mV of 3 - 5,

    my seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium 650 Watt MPSU (ATX) has a rated mV of 10 and below,

    the HD PLEX costs around £422 more than my Prime Ultra (smps); is the reduction of around 5mV worth the extra £422? ...would it even be noticeable in a blind audio/sound test? great is the difference between 5 and 10 mV of ripple noise?

    many thanks in advance for all opinions offered!
