Yes, the fuse drawer is accessible (integrated into the IEC).  Feel free to try your favorite aftermarket fuse.  I use Synergistc Blue in my Signature Rendu SEoptical.

Did I read it correctly, it’s 315ma 250v. I have a Audio Magic Fuse that I’m not using but I think it’s 2amps.

Would be nice to know the specs just to keep an eye out. Also, any basic guidelines on the AC cord? I'm happy with what I've got, a shortened Naim stock cable cry'o'd with Wattgate plug. Think I'm done for now, but there's always next year and they're fun to build...

 

Other Oyaide soldered to the end of the Neotech cable and some more sparkle. Anyone using those dc screw barrels for DIY are doing themselves a dis-service. But man, soldering (or worse re-soldering ones for the n-th time) Oyaide plugs and one soon realizes what a bargain Ghent is. Those Oyaides are pretty sturdy though, so easily re-usable if you want to roll some different cables.

The fuse spec for the power supply is 315 mA, 250 V, type "T" (slow blow, AKA time delay).  Do not use a fuse of any different specification (this specific  is for US voltage units only).  The sizes 5 x 20 mm.

The power supply continues to sound very good. Just no-brainer if you're in the market and it fits your need good like all of Sonore's products imo. Piano is particularly great (listening to Straight No Chaser as I write). Good times. Thank you!

I received my PS yesterday using it to power the oR instead of the SGC PS I was using as the LPS 1.2 didn't work.

 

Thank you to all at Sonore: The magic is back that was lost when I was powering the oR with the SCG PS.

 

Though it is still in the breaking in stage:

The instruments that play in the lower registers come through with power and are taught, well defined.

The sound, as in a saxophone, on Ike Quebec's Blue & Sentimental. is sweet as you could want it, when it should be. You can watch him move around on the stage as he plays.

There is very clear rand real separation between sound sources on the sound stage.

The sound stage is in front of and behind the speakers on cuts where it was, presumably recorded that way. There is very good depth.

Mass voices are well separated and distinct. Female soloists with beautiful voices are...beautiful.

You can hear the singer's intent; right now listening to "A case of you" by Diana Krall. My wife says she is not listening to the music, she is experiencing it. 

You can follow quiet instruments in the background mix.

A number of instruments, hand drums, a Leslie, cymbals sound real. I used to manage rock groups in the 60's and we always had B-3's with Leslies. This is what they sound like live.

 

The set-up: 

The pre-amp (MP-1) and power amps (MA-1 )are Atma-Sphere. 

Power, interconnects and Cables are Analysis-Plus Silver Apex.

2960 switch to (Blue Jeans data cables) Sonic Transport to oM to OR with Sonore and upTone power supplies, ghent dc-cables with Wire world Platinum USB between oR and Yiggi DAC, Speakers are Maggies with REL Gibraltar Sub. So YMMV, but I'm very happy. Never satisfied :-) I'm looking forward to the SQ when the oR and the PS are broken in.

Sitting here listening to the very good recording of Thelonious Monk Live at the Jazz Workshop with probably about 100 hours now on the UltraSupply. All I can say, is that the mythical disappearing HiFi has finally arrived (disappeared?) in my living room. Nothing short of wonderful. Complete chain in signature.

Yesterday I was here alone and walked into the house from outside. I immediately got my shackles up because there was s strange voice in the living room. Of course it was just Roon Radio playing some strange Bulgarian female vocal solo. But it was so real and lifelike it totally caught me off guard!

@barrows what is the weight and dimensions of this power supply?

Off the top of my head and estimating, it is about 6"x 6" x 2" and around 3-4 lbs.  The chassis is aluminum, most of the weight comes from the 30 VA transformer.

No, but I doubt that Jesus would like to actually name any competitors' products here.

Popping back in to say that after 200-300 hours the UltraSupply really comes into it's own. Bass bloom is mostly gone (what's left is my room and gear sometimes not handling how deep it goes now), and it sounds really natural. Not even considering any more the need to upgrade my microRendu 1.4. I wouldn't hesitate getting a second Ultra if need be. Thankfully I really don't NEED anything at the moment and the sound is glorious, plus at this point spending on the amp or speakers would bring more than power supplies down the streaming line.. And I received it in a week (compared to months or years for a supply I really wouldn't think is that much better). 

 

Any plans on offering different voltages? 5V for the oM might be nice.

A 5 volt version is/will be available for the opticalModule.  There might be a little bit of a wait for these, as PC boards are in production.  The design is a bit different than that of the 7 volt version, although they share the same case and external look.  These supplies use the same discrete voltage regulator, with a different design to optimize for the different voltage.  The price will be similar to that of the 7 volt version, as the costs are very close. 

I do not expect that these will be fully available until after Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, as we are very busy prepping for that.

tempted to get the PSU after reading the good feedback, but found out the shipping cost to Sydney is US$198.56 which is 1/3 off the unit price. I gave up idea to get it to AU  now.

 

A comparable option  is to buy a Sbooster BOTW P&P ECO 5-6V MK II Power Supply Upgrade  https://www.audiodestination.co.uk with 20% off  GST deduction (from UK  to outside EU) with only £40.00 postage
