Jesus,
What devices do I use this power supply with?

Jesus,

19 V. is right for a lot of laptops and smaller computers with external PSs.
This looks way cool, and is a sorely needed product at the price!

I have been testing it with various audio devices around house. I currently have it hooked up to a SOtM Mini Server that is indirectly powering a SOtM headphone DAC/AMP. However, it could easily power a Intel based music server and external NAS or USB drive.

Is this unit only19V and 12V, or can the 12V be changed to another value?

FYI - heard back from vendor.   Outputs cannot be changed.

Picked up 2 of these from Jesus...

I am running an Intel i5 NUC + DSpeaker 8033S on one, and External USB HDD on the other.

A very nice improvement in sound quality - more than I expected.   Smoother, larger, stronger are the words that come to mind.   A very worthwhile investment for the audio rig.

Hey guys, I'm just jumping in on this (although I've been using an Asus VivoPC for a while now as a playback source with JRiver MC 20 and Windows 8.1).  I'm trying to think of low cost ways to improve performance.  I've been reading a bit about LPSU's and they seem to be good bang for the buck.

I have a couple of questions to get started ...

1. Does an LPSU benefit anything with a wall wart OR does it have to be a power brick type?

2. The Asus VivoPC VM40 comes with a power brick rated @ 65 watts and 19v, does it look like the Sonore may work for my application?

You would plug this directly into the wall and the unit can handle those power requirements.

Thanks for the advice and input!

I've got one of these powering a C.A.P.S. v3 server currently, and it's an incredible value at that price.  It's built like a brick as well. 
Being the tweaker that I am, I will be making some larger awg DC cable for this baby soon.. :thumb:

Since it can power 2 devices do you plug anything else into it?  I was thinking that I would plug both my Asus Vivo PC and WD My Cloud NAS into it.

Jesus,

How does the sound out of the Mini Server compare between the battery and this HD-Plex Linear Power Supply?  Thanks.

Jesus, do you offer a customer satisfaction trial period?

I have owned one these for about a week and I love it.  It powers my music server, external hard drive, and schiit USB wyrd USB conditioner.  So it allowed me to remove three cheap switching power supplies from my system.  Well built but the front led is piercingly bright. 8)

Eliminating all those cheap switching power supplies from my system has worked wonders.  The sound is much much smoother now.  If you have a music server this is a no brainer.  Really high quality for small amount of money.
