Congratulations!

 

What voltage/current are the 4 rails? And what will you be powering?

 

Do let us know how it sounds after it’s settled in.

 

Thanks. 2 rails are 5-15v (3A each) and the other 2 are 9-19v (3 and 6A).  Just got an email from Paul this is the first Streacom FC9 chassis he built. He built an FC10 before. He has to use the chassis because the transformer mass is just too big for the specs I specified with the standard case.

 

I will be powering the entire chain from router, switch, NUC server, NUC Roon, SOtM regen, split cables, etc up to DAC together with 2 units of SR4-12 and a unit of SR4-19. Transparency, details, and instrument separation is what I am after for the type of music I listen to (instrumental) so PH power supply is very important for my set-up.

It looks like the voltage/current are written on the Jaeger connectors if you zoom in. 

Nice Streacom chassis. Much better looking than the previous models I have seen.

Congratulations! Let us know how it sounds. 

 

It's a Streacom FC9. I'm surprised how compact it is. Perfect for my desktop set-up.

Awesome.

 

You will be doing some of the same tradeoffs I have, which is deciding where to allocate SR7 rails (and what current), and where to use SR4's. I've formed some opinions, but I don't want to bias your observations. Please do keep us posted on your listening results, and what allocations you like best.

 

These may be OT for this thread - which is about the build calendar - so feel free to post on the novel thread.

I'll post this to the other thread.

Wasn't it supposed all SR7 3A rails get replaced by 6A regulators ?

Sure it will not allows you to drain 6A due to transformer core and windings will limit max power you can get. But just wanted to know if this update has been implemented in your build.

Only the output device to the ones used in the 6A modules were upgraded on the 3A rails.  The rails are still classified as 3A continuous standard unless a 6A rail is specified.

SR 7 multirail with three separate rails  that can be set for any voltage from 3.3 v to 8.3 v is looking for new home.

 

Limited uses for those voltages.  I'm sure that's why it hasn't sold already.

I just received word from Paul that he delivered the remaining July build SR-4 orders at the post office today. The PHD guy is ill so Paul completed the process for him. Mine is in this remainder of this batch it and I also received a tracking number.

 

Remaining details; SR4S-12 ordered April 2nd, funds arrived at PHD at April 5th, build originally planned for the July batch. Shipped today August 15th.
