I’ve been reading good reports on various fora of using a 240 to 12V AC transformer from Maplin as a relacement power supply for the Dacmagic. It’s a 36VA tranny in a plastic case with a captive 2 core mains cable and a selection of pluggable DC plugs. It’s Maplin part number L54BR. It costs £15.
I’ve picked up one locally so reports of some listening results very soon.
The 225VA transformer has been terminated with a suitable mains lead and power in plug for the Cambridge. It”s been plugged in and blown a one and a two amp fuse with its switch on surge so it’s running with a 3amp fuse. This by the way is not the way to do something for long-term use. This is just…
A 225VA 12V toroid has arrived today for the “does a larger transformer improve the Cambridge DacMagic trial”.
Hope to add the necessary connections to do the first listening tests tomorrow – more then.
