Sorry if I was unclear in my previous post. I didn't use full Paul Hynes SR supplies. I ordered shunt regulators PH designed for the Buffalo I/V stage (I believe it was Legato II).

 

I opened up the Shanti to direct-solder DIY Type-C cables to the PCB and upgrade the IEC socket, but didn't really take notes of the specific parts used.  

 

The stock cables and connectors are alright, but the mod is inexpensive and brings significant sonic improvement.

What were the differences that you heard between the stock shanti and your mods?

I still remember being impressed by the Digione sig using its stock adapter and iFi iPower.

 

Now that I have listened to the player powered by the Shanti, the old configuration sounds broken. It’s simply not on the same level.

Thanks

Hello- having an issue with the Shanti and DigiOne Signature.

 

I am currently powering the DigiOne with the supplied wall-wart for the dirty side and using the 1A Shanti output for the clean side.  When I try to use the Shanti 3A output for the DigiOne dirty side, the RPi reboots over and over.  I gather from others here that the Shanti should be able to power both sides of the DigiOne.  How can I diagnose what is happening here?  I am using RopieeeXL on the DigiOne.

 

Thanks!

Hi There. having an issue withe the Shanti powering my Digione and Boss player.

 

SHANTI is unable to power up my Allo Digione [Non Sig model] or my boss player. I am using the 5V3A side, Shanti is turned on [red LEDs inside are on], the green light flashes 3 times, red LED stays off then shuts off and repeats on both models. When I switch back to my old PSU [Allo $15 5V3A] they power up and operate normally.  Is anyone else having this issue? Wondering if I am missing something simple.

Hi

 

  Can you check if the voltage on the back of Shanti is 230V or 110 ? (if its correct for your region)

Ah, that was the problem!  Can’t believe I never checked it but yes, it was selected for 230. Works perfectly now, thanks for the help!

Hi Shhquiet

 

  Can you place check that your Shanti also has the right voltage selected on the back of the box ? (230 in EU and 110 in US/Canada)

Rookie mistake on my part. Changed it to 115v for my region and now works great! Thanks for the quick reply!

My Shanti , after a couple of weeks use , its transformer started to hum, gradually more, so after 2 weeks, i shut it down. 

It is the only device in my set-up with a transformer that hums.

Top bad, i used itcto power my qutest, and before it started to hum, i was quite happy.

Hi Alex,

 

OT, but there is a new one, S512.

Hi Matt, 

 

Thank you for the info. Looks like Sparkler made a nice workaround to make their DAC compatible with multiple types of inputs.

 

It would probably work great with sources that have a high quality i2s output (can't say that about the RPi), take their S507 for instance. However, I'd much rather have the conversion unit built with proper power delivery and ample space inside the DAC compared to say, a small adapter on the digital cable.

 

Maybe I'm too quick to judge, but I don't think this would be a sonic improvement in my setup with Digione Sig+Audiophile Pi.
