@Marcin_gps with your Duo LPS being a competitive price point. Are you expecting your new ATX to be of similar price? or what commercial price point you trying to hit?

I am not trying to hit any price. With the level of quality and reliability we are are going to provide, we can't compete in terms of pricing. 

 

This is a pioneer product which does not have a competition. 

 

For now I can say that it will be more expensive than the OPTIMO 3 DUO. 

 

But it will deliver the sound that is not just a little bit better from today's solutions. 

 

More details to come...

so... for those of us with PCs similar to the CAPS server Chris built, is this even remotely enough to power it?

What's strange is the above specification says capable of 23amps, but then same it's capable of 95w TDP. (At 12v is circa 8amps. So maybe the it's not a continuous 23amps, maybe @Marcin_gps can confirm?

 

I currently use 10a LPS, (12v) & run my i9 9900k @5.0ghz with HQPlayer (128DSD) and HDPlex case. 

 

If JCAT is capable of continuous 23A then i9 10900k should work with ease, but will need good cooling, only passive case I know that can do that is Turemetal UP10. If using a CAPS watercooler or fans then it should work.

Optimo ATX nominal continuous output current will be 23A on each of main rails (12, 5 and 3.3V). The capability to support 95W processor platforms comes from Intel recomendations for power supplies.

 TDP has nothing to do with actaual power consumption of processor. It stands for Thermal Design Power it is more theoretical term describing the chip ability to generate heat.

I’m using today an atx power supply to feed a server only (not player) and the impact of this atx is huge. Depending on the price not sure it would makes sense to me to invest. Perhaps more designed for people having a player/server based PC. Time and budget will tell 🙂


at this point of time, waiting for the netcard XE 🙂

 

anyway this is a really good move forward for audiophiles people. Congrats @Marcin_gps

Which ATX PSU are you using now?

I am trying to understand where to place this power supply in terms of quality.  Is the aim to match or improve the Optimo 3 with regard to the 5v lines that, for example, feed the Jcat usb and net cards?  I read that it will beat all competition, does that include your own Optimo 3 (which is not comparable in terms of functionality of course)?

As a fan of the Ansuz feets and isolators, will they retro fit on this case, can the feets be replaced or are they already some fancy on? Thx

You will be able to use the Ansuz feets. There will be a small rubber type isolators included.

 

I personally use foQ footers under my components with good results.

Like I wrote in the USB XE thread, the Optimo 3 Duo will perform better if used with low-powered components.  The 5V AUX output is shared with ATX lines, so it's still a good idea to use the Optimo 3 Duo for the cards for best  performance.

 

The quality is exceptional, but slightly below optimo for that purpose. It is simply not possible to achieve that kind of low-noise at 23A. 

 

That said, I think the OPTIMO ATX will be an attractive all-in-one package.

Marcin what will make your new ATX LPS so special it will beat all competition? 

 

This is world's first truly linear ATX power supply.  Other power supplies on the market are hybrid switching type power supplies with some linear regulation - it's not the same. 

 

Quality backed up by real world performance, not just marketing slogans. 

 

Reliability - the power supplies are built to last.

 

Safety: CE compliance proven in documentation and lab tests.

Thanks for the information. Will have a closer look to « competition » designs.
