Power Supply for MDAC

    I don't see many aftermarket power supplies for the MDAC, either DIY or commercial products. The only power supply I have seen if from Nick of Longdog Audio.
    Any thoughts?

    I had it, it was a lot better than the stock model.

    I would love to make a DIY attempt, has anyone tried this?

    mr_phil If it isn't broken, try harder

    Yup, mine is a plug in replacement with teddyregs providing +-15v for analog and +15 for digital

    It has 2 separate traffos and keeps analog and digital separate

    It requires no changes to the MDAC. Sound quality; it is better but not by a huge margin. More detail, better control etc etc and I did report on this here in PFM when I did it and we compared a vanilla MDAC PSU against this and against a sovereign modded MDAC with a clear hierarchy. Whether it is worth doing is up to you , mine was built largely from the spares box but I wouldn't pay more than £100 for the impromvent it gave

    Now that's what I was looking for.
    I don't have such a comprehensive spares box, if I was to buy the parts needed what kind of outlay would I be looking at?
    I do have the Sovereign upgrade though, so from the sovereign upgrade does the separate psu only provide a small upgrade?
