    Default One happy Caiman SEG new owner

    What can I say that has not already been said. Finally managed to liberate my package from the Royal Mail depot l yesterday. I plumbed the bad boy in and I was staggered at what Stan's DAC is capable of. I am still trying to pick my jaw up of the floor. I had a full Naim system previously with a ndac and supercap and I can honestly say that it did not reveal what Stan's great DAC is. Now I know why they are keepers. Thank you Stan I can't wait to get a linear power supply and see what that does.....

    I would be interested in which linear supply you get, thinking of getting one myself.

    If you fancy seeing what's possible for a lot less outlay than the Linear Power supply then have a look at this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DC-12300-...AAAOSwlY1ZIoZ8

    It's what I run my SEG on and it's fantastic!

    I use an Anker battery but it switches off after 20 minutes or so, maybe your solution is a good idea. is there a 15v version?

    I haven't seen a 15v version but there are plenty of higher capacity 12v ones. Personally, I've never needed one as this lasts me a good couple of weeks at a time.

    Yep the SEGs a winner isn't it!

    I've been very happy with mine and its competing quite well against a VPI Scout with Ortofon Quintet Bronze Cart!

    I use an older version of this LPS and it works well.

    I couldn't tell you if its any better or worse than anything else but I'm happy with it.

    Wow that is cheap.

    Is it safe?

    They do the job, although some of the designs are a bit dodgy in their design of the ground connection. But I have bought and checked out two of those designs, and they measured OK isolation wise.

    I have similar Chinese Lithium DC 12v battery but with a larger capacity (20,000 mAh), Tony. No safety issues I'm aware of (so far). Charges and discharges without incident. Very cheap [21] way of getting off grid.

    SEG performs way beyond its price tag and you get unrivaled customer service from Mr.Beresford.
