Enjoy and Merry Christmas! :)

 

Quick update.  Took all of 5 mins the replace the Sotm with the XE.    Running it with a Keces P8 LPS via it's 5v 1amp output.

 

Put the Music PC back in the system and it worked a treat immediately.   Played Bruce Springsteen - Letter to You (flac) .

 

Great tone and richness to the voice and a  noticeable heft in the bottom end.

 

@Marcin_gpsis there a burn in period at all.

 

Regards Cazzesman

Hi Cazzesman, 

 

Yes, there is a long burn-in period. I suggest a minimum 48 hours, but the card will improve up to 200-250h

 

Enjoy :)

@Marcin_gps  can you tell me how much current each of the USB Outputs is able to provide?

 

I have a USB bus powered DAC, works fine from my motherboards USB sockets but it powers only intermittently from the JCAT USB XE card.  The power supply I am using with the USB XE card can deliver up to 2.8v.

 

Thanks

Yes sorry 2.8A, earlier typo my mistake.

 

Current requirements for U192ETL are up to 500 mA.

Normal PC USB output should be fine to deliver up to 500 mA, this power requirement is also communicated via USB descriptors to PC/Host.

 

Would be great to work out why USB XE isn’t powering my U192ETL correctly.

Hi @Marcin_gps - Can you explain the grounding configuration of the JCAT USB XE with regards to performance of USB output and how it can affect the attached DAC?  Thanks

The ground is connected to the steel PCIe bracket and then to the enclosure. 

 

Some customers use this or other similar products to 'improve' grounding.
