    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.

    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.
