Spendy - at least compared to the Chinese stuff on eBay - but wort it IMO for a hand-made device made locally by a highly experienced engineer, and thoroughly nice bloke too It has switchable grounding options, and variable output too, so has 'future-proofing' flexibility.

    Anyone in a similar situation who has gone this route?
    As coincidence would have it I have just replaced my ipower with a LDA LPS today.

    Initial impressions are that it is much quieter than the Ipower which in turn was quieter than the stock wall plug.

    Definitively,worth the money in my book....

    I'm sure there's a review going about that coolers the iFi PSU to much costlier linear ones and the iFi comes out pretty good.

    It might have been on Hans Beekhuyzens YouTube channel but I can't remember.

    Good value and definitely better than the SMPS with a more detailed sound but not as good as the LDA LPS...

    Thanks for the reply. I bought a cheap Chinese linear supply as a proof of concept compared to the standard wall plug and was very impressed for the money. I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable having it on 24/7 but that's probably an unwarranted concern. I've spoken to Paul and ordered a supply but I'm waiting for the enclosure before hooking everything up.
