A new product by Sbooster.

High quality power supply with a Micro USB connector for the Pi and Pi 2.

This can provide a maximum of 3 amps at 5 volts which is much more current than similarly priced power supplies.

Extremely low power consumption as it uses a latest design regulator and also extremely low noise.
Much more efficient that most other non SMPS power supplies.

Also includes a selection of different sized power tips so you can use the power supply with other devices that need the same voltage range.

This power supply can output 5 or 6 volts DC, switch selectable to work with a wide range of devices.

Available with gold or silver colour top plate, they both look great and are heavy with a high quality case and feel.

A top quality product and there is a lot more to come in this range of power supplies.

Forum members send me a message for a slight discount for a limited period only as the price is already keen for a such a high quality product.

They are very good indeed Jo :)

If the regen is an uptone Regen http://uptoneaudio.com/products/usb-regen
Then yes, set the PSU to 6V and it will be perfect and very low power consumption when compared with older less efficient designs of PSU.

Hi Mark, I noticed that you got a 12V version of the power supply as well. Would that be suitable for use with my Caiman MKII DAC and Capella headphone amp as well? Have you got one in stock that you can try out?

Thanks

I use a 12 volt version with a Capella headphone amp and a pair of Oppo headphones, sounds great.
I will start a new thread about the 12 volt as they are for a different range of devices.

I have a few 5 Volt in stock for the Pi and other devices.

probably the lowest measured noise PSU available and less than 200.

Includes a few different power tips to fit other devices that also use 5V.

I can't help thinking that a near-200 PSU for a 25 Pi is way out of kilter. About time someone came up with a good linear PSU at a cost more in line with the Pi ecosystem? I'm no expert on what it takes to build a linear PSU, so perhaps that's not economically possible, and, if so, I think I will stick to using a battery pack (eg the Anker) for the more acceptable and in-keeping price of around 40

Alternative wording: I'm afraid my cheapskate tendencies over-rule my audiophile tendencies on this issue :-)

That's where your 'very' wrong, me hearty! Arrr!

If your a true cheapskate then simply stick with what you have and don't buy one, I suppose!
