    Default Anyone recommend a 5V 2A linear DC cabled PSU please?

    Rejigging and trying to clean up my Network setup for streaming playback.
    Have the newer Virgin Superhub 4, and want to power it from balanced mains.
    I dont want to put the cheapo noisy switch mode supply in there though, so looking for reccy's for a 5V 2A linear.

    Nothing too extravagant, maybe under a hundred.

    Remember powering my old T-Amp back in the day with a Chinese Ebay special that was very good, don't remember much about it though.

    Think you had one as well...?

    Cheers Chaps.
    Enjoying hifi 'n stuff...

    Hi Gaz,

    I reckon Duncan (tubehunter) would build you a bespoke one for less than a ton, and it would be way better than any mass-produced commercial shit. He did one for my RPi (can't remember the electrical requirements), and it made a notable improvement to SQ

    What’s cheap is cheap, no such thing as a free lunch. Lesson learnt over nearly 72 years. Try for a s/h SBooster, really good linear power supply.
