I'm not sure a power conditioner that works on one would be cost effective, compared to just replacing with a linear? How much does that cost?
You are missing the point. Batteries done right sound better IME. I build very high current low impedance linear supplies, too. It is all about getting the best sound, not being in one camp or the other.Prices are all on my Circle. This is getting too far off topic from the SMPS question, methinks.Once again: problems with SMPS are: They feed noise back into power lines They are radio transmitters They may or may not provide 'clean' power to the deviceTo each, his own.
So noise, hash amplified in the high frequency range.... thats it?
It reminds me of those super tweeters you put on top of your speakers. On their own typically not audible but when added to an amplified source they blend in. With out reinventing it the only thing you can use is a good quality, long usb cord. Along with the Mac Mini plugged in (outside and away) from the system. In a different room even. Then run it off mpod from an ipad.
In order for any power conditioner to work with a Mac Mini at all, the cheapest mod possible might be shortening the AC cable to a knub. A problem however if you look at many specs on certain conditioners is that they concentrate more on the mhz range, than the khz range.
That's the problem with most "conditioners". Even 100K is way too high to be really effective.
What do you mean exactly? Like power conditioners need to affect a lower range?
Sorry, but in my mind it seemed like you split on thought into two, expressed as sentances. In my mind most conditioners don't filter low enough, so to say "too high" is an expression that maybe brought something with it I didn't get.
Have you tried a USB transformer, or power splitter? But you'd be right in an interesting way. Rarely do you hear artifacts and noises in playback, but the effects of the noise on the music itself are readily obvious the minute you plug your gear into something that reduces it. Maybe they're more audible, maybe they are not, what's clear is when they're gone it's crazy how much it can be like thinking coffee doesn't get much than Starbucks, and then having a pour over that's $5 at some local place that get special beans from Kenya...
