    Been in a couple of days and my SEG is sounding superb!

    Anker battery arriving Monday for the Chromecast and that's me done!

    Had Stan fettle my SEG last week, very quick turnaround. Unfortunately I can’t comment on any improvements right now as I’m suffering with a head cold
    Stay tuned, I hope to post my impressions when it’s abated.

    A few questions for Stan:

    Is the Supercap upgrade still available?
    Will it make any difference if the SEG is just used as a DAC?
    Will it work normally on 12v until I get a 15v PSU?

    Thanks

    It's still available.
    It is designed to improve the DAC and the pre-amp.
    You need a 15V power supply from the word go. I have a couple of UK plug 15V power supplies that will do for a while till you get a decent 15V linear PSU. Only available to AoS members due to limited stock. It's not listed on my site.
    But the 15V PSU I have should be replaced with a linear one ASAP if you want to hear the upgrade at its best.

    Default Very happy with the supercap upgrade!

    Stan upgraded my SEG last week and I'm happy to say that yes, it makes a real and significant improvement, top to bottom. Accuracy and articulation is very apparent. Strings, horns, percussion, deep bass, voices, sound effects ... all definitely improved. I'm lucky to have two SEGs so I could easily compare the pre-updated version with the new SuperCAP update and I"m convinced that this is the New Beast for anyone who has the 15v power supply! I've now sent my second SEG back to Stan to be upgraded as well.

    Thanks all, I'll go ahead with the upgrade. I've got one of the 15v SMPS already so I'll be okay until the new PSU turns up.

    Stan, can you please PM me the cost, method of payment (presumably PayPal) and delivery address? I'll need it posting back as well. Ta.

    I am a bit snowed under with mods right now. So it will have to be next week at the earliest before I can tackle yours I reckon.

    No worries, just let me know when you're ready.

    I've noticed the Beresford craze on here so I wanted to ask a few questions if I may?

    1. What are the range of Beresford DACs and how much do they sell for new?
    2. Stan do you sell them?
    3. Why does the Beresford site, or any other site, not have prices on it?
    4. Is it likely to sound better in my HiFi than my Chord Mojo?

    Cheers
