    Maybe I have missed something but for 215 I'd like to see a proper specification with noise figures etc. stated.

    I agree it's a lot of money based on a picture and a few pretty words. I was hoping someone might have some experience of it.

    Can anybody tell me if this psu is a good one? I am normally wary of anything from China...

    Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271922367224

    Don't fancy running with a battery, prefer to keep it powered up with a psu

    I believe that's a knock-off, the real McCoy is made in Singapore as far as I know, at least the one I have is.

    Yes it's more expensive and no I'm not trying to spend your hard earned cash, but take a look at this listing, it's not terribly pricey given the parts list.

    I can also vouch for the seller, he seems to have re-branded as Vinshine Audio and is making an absolutely beautiful looking variant of the well regarded Soekris DAC as well as a higher spec'd 80VA version of that PSU too, but I'm pretty sure he also made the Jays Audio PSUs and wasn't just repackaging some Chinese junk.

    EDIT: I see in the photo of the 80VA version of the PSU it says "Designed in Singapore" on the rear panel, so it appears he doesn't make them in Singapore anymore (maybe he never did?).

    Oh ye of little faith.
    Did you not see the name Longdog Audio mentioned?
    Nick (of Longdog) is obsessive about power supplies, and his are very quiet indeed.

    I use one of these PSUs with my Squeezebox Touch, and it has lifted the performance of my Touch considerably.

    There's a thread somewhere on this forum where a number of PSUs were measured, and this one came out quietest of the bunch, and if I recollect correctly, one of the PSUs measured was a rechargeable battery pack.

    I noticed the Longdog name but the actual unit does not appear to be branded as such and the description seems a bit vague on this matter.

    It's built by Nick, regardless of what's on the case.
