Like for instance, a Mac Mini, external hard drive and a DAC? Could a class D amp make it as well?
I was considering the forthcoming Audiolabs MDAC. It will have an exrternal power supply connectd by Mini DIN (9W + Shield so 10 Conductors). The Pin arrangement is 3,4,2 (+ Outer Shield). MDAC:- +15V Analogue 500mA, -15V Analogue -150mA, +15V Digital +150mA. This is John Westlake's latest ESS Sabre32 design. DAC/Pre-amp like the Audiolab 8200CD/CDQ without the CD player.I currently have a Wyred4Sound ST-500. Class D, therefore supposedly efficient.Any concern about voltage fluctuation with these 100AH lead acid batteries?
DaveAre there any problems running a Dodd buffer, switching ps for an amp, ldr vol control, and dac from the same battery?
I am running a Class D Amp, A Dodd Buffer, an Alix music server, and a MF V-Link off my BatteryBUSS fed by a Kinetik HCA1400 SLA battery with NO problems...Ted
Ted...Did the BatteryBUSS eliminate the turn on/turn off DC offset issue? I have to turn the Dodd buffer on before the CDA-224 amp, and turn the buffer off after turning off the amp, or I get a loud pop through my speakers.Mike
There is no substitute for doing the proper turn on/turn off sequence. That is standard procedure for turning on audio gear that does not have DC servos on the outputs.The BatteryBUSS is a battery power management device. Its' functions are to remove sulfation noise from DC, provide a very low output impedance and to give battery power outputs as well as other voltages for different pieces of gear... 5VDC in particular - although other voltages are available.Thumps is thumps edit. I had a thought (ta-daaaaaaa!) - you "might" be able to eliminate the pop by wiring a .01 - .1ufd cap across the on-off switch in the buffer. It's worth a try.Dave
Thanks, DaveI'm new to this stuff (obviously), and have discovered that "with great sound comes great responsibility". I'll run this mod past Gary.Mike
