    Default PSU advice

    I'm currently using a R-Pi with Moode into an HRT Music Streamer II+ DAC via a Chord Silver Plus USB cable. The Pi is powered with an iFi iPower PSU and this also powers the DAC.
    Now looking at an improved method of powering the DAC. I briefly owned an Aqvox PSU but passed this on recently as I thought I was going to have a change of direction, but have decided not to.
    My thoughts are-

    Aqvox PSU.
    Another iFi iPower with a conduit cable from Audiophonics.
    Anker battery with the Audiophonics cable (this could power Pi and DAC)

    Any pointers greatly appreciated!

    Ive got a aquvox in shed. Used it well to power my beresford usb to spdif and was well pleased with it. Cant find a use for it these days but they are good. Not tried the ifi... i do also have an anker battery that i use with my headphone system sometimes. Its good too, but they do run out eventually.
