Musical Fidelity X-24 DAC (1990s) Power Supply Unit PSU - Problem
I have had probelms over several years with a power amp tripping. Eventually yestyerday I think I found the problem - the PSU of my Musical Fidelity X-24 DAC.The replacement one from the manufacturer is £35. But I have heard that OEM PSUs in general are dodgy and surely the new one might go the same way of the old?The back of the unit says it needs: 12v AC 500mACurrently I'm using a Maplin's special: 15V 1A. (230v 50Hz 140mA). That's probably bad I imagine but I don't know.I also have my hifi powered by an extension lead a TACIMA 6 way Mains Conditioner and Radio Frequency Interference Filter (Amazon) - which did seem to help reduce some noise as the power is on the same circuit as the kitchen white goods.I want to spend as little money as possible...I'm now beyond caring too much about the quality of the sound ...just so long as my DAC is NOT damaged and the speakers don't trip. IF a quarter of the audible spectrum is eliminated I'm beyond caring!!!!! I just want a robust interference 'free' solution (for about 3 quid!!!) Simples!
