Benchmark DAC1 USB runs very warm on U.K.Australia etc. mains voltages

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine was concerned about his Benchmark DAC1 USB running at a very warm temperature.

His post and the reply from Benchmark is at the attached link.

I am damn sure that I wouldn't run an 18V regulator with a 31V input without a considerable amount of heatsinking. Not if I wanted a long and reliable working life of the equipment.


(O.K. I have my flame suit on !)







How a Digital Audio file sounds, or a Digital Video file looks, is governed to a large extent by the Power Supply area. All that Identical Checksums gives is the possibility of REGENERATING the file to close to that of the original file.
