I use a line conditioner because the only separate I own that has a external wall wart is the Graham Slee Novo.

if you upgrade to the Musical Fidelity M series you won't have to worry about it.

I think 150,- euro is a bit expensive for that PSU, it does come in handy when you carry more V-series products from them.
I probably will get the Phono stage from them though becuase that other hand seems to be a bargain again like this DAC.

Dunno what i want for headphone in the future though, i dont need an expensive headphone because i will only use it for gaming at night so an expensive headphone amp would be useless for me.
I might get a good pre-amp with a headphone out as a solution though.

So the PSU needs to able to handle 3 device's with ease so i am future ready for what i want.

A laboratory PSU or a quality linear PSU seems like a better option to me, you can hook up anything to it really and they look of very high quality aswell.
Or am i mistaken and is the Musical Fidelity an alot better PSU then a 100 to 150 euro Lab PSU ?

Odd, I am having a lot of trouble finding linear wall power supplies from the European suppliers... It may due to some draconian efficiency rules or something.

I'd be tempted to build my own at this point.

Musical Fidelity just launched the M1 SDAC

http://www.musicalfidelity.com/m1sdac/

it's a integrated DAC, Headphone Amplifier and Pre-Amplifier. I wish it had balanced outputs like the M1 DAC but it supports Bluetooth aptX and the headphone amplifier can output 2 watts and it has a low output impedance.

you can pair it with the M1VINL or M1PWR

The M1DAC allready cost 599,- euro here
It doesnt have Phono inputs so i still need to get that frown.gif

I prolly dont even want to know what the price is of the M1SDAC lol

With the V-DAC II (279,- euro) + the V-PSU (150,- euro) + the Phono stage (160,-) i will have to spend 589,- total.
10,- cheaper then the M1DAC but i will have my Phono connection then smile.gif
Might even become cheaper if i can find out if a Lab PSU is just as good or maybe better then the V-PSU

The headphone amp will be a cheap one or i might get a monitor controller to controll volume, inputs and headphone.
Could also just run it on the onboard soundcard since its only for gaming at night.

I like getting it in small parts like this, i cant fork out lots of money at once but i can spread over time wich is why i have choosen this path.

a lab grade PSU is the wrong tool for the job. I won't give you the validation your seeking. V-PSU II is all you need.

I'm late to the party, but I'll throw in my 2 cents anyway. I use a Dragonfly DAC, it's USB powered. I bought a separate USB power supply (Aqvox, 98 euros) and there was a noticeable difference in SQ, as the reviews said there would be.

As an aside, have you tried JPlay?

No, good linear laboratory PSUs are very high quality. The last thing you want when you are designing a circuit is noise coming from your PSU and screwing things up. The advantage Musical Fidelity would have is (maybe) its size and it coming with the connectors you need.

Pretty much any regulated linear supply is going to be awesomely quiet. Switchers can be quiet, too, but it takes a ton of work to get them that way.
