I believe they ship worldwide everywhere where FedEx ships. At least it was with FedEx both times I had ordered from them.

Regarding the cable I ordered my second unit with Level 2 DC cable. Later on compared it to Audio Sensibility Signature Silver DC which was recommended by some users here on AS.

I found the Audio Sensibility Signature Silver DC allowing slightly more micro-dynamic sound on snare hits and clearly less grainy sound overall vs the Level 2.

 

I did the comparison JCAT USB XE as source component, powered with Farad 3.

@Savolax Thank you for the information! Very helpful! 
I’m looking to power a Mytek Brooklyn DAC+ at 12V. 
Overall, it seems like most members of AS are very satisfied with Farad’s performance over most other power supplies. 
My other option I’ve been considering is the Uptone Audio JS-2  (7A / 10A Max), which does have more Amps vs. Farad. 
I have read some reviews on AS that state the larger power of the JS-2 is a good pairing with the Mytek Brooklyn DAC+. 
Any opinions or thoughts between the two for my needs?

I have no experience on Mytek Brooklyn DAC so can't say to go one way sound wise. Although I think a DAC might not require that much of current capability but then again I am not familiar with the unit. Both PSU's probably are good choices to go with if current demands are met even with Farad3.

 

One thing to consider though is that if you were on a tight budget and might want to maximize your investment, JS-2's dual AND adjustable output voltage is a no-brainer here I think.

Economic area is another. You probably know better how this goes in the US but if I were to order something from the US to Finland(such as JS-2) it is practically impossible avoid additional customs and value added taxes. Even ordered from the UK dealer (now after Brexit) I think there would be double VAT included on it's price as the product is entering the UK economic area.

 

Farad3 is fixed to one certain voltage you choose and is a single rail unit only.

 

Sean Jacobs power supplies are highly regarded ones and would be also one option to consider especially now that there is a US dealer. I believe the price range goes a bit higher though with their DC3 power supply but you might want to check on that. @Nenon on the forum is affiliated with.

I just asked Sean Jacobs if he is willing to build a demo DC3 LPS for the Mytek Brooklyn DAC+ for the US market. It would be nice to have one floating around for people to listen to.

How about Paul Hynes SR4T ?

I think some even find this better than the Farad. And you can have different voltages. 
https://www.paulhynesdesign.com

Prices increases in 5 days. 

I know this is a highly regarded power supply, I’ve heard he has ling build times and not easily or quickly obtained ? 
My power supply I’ve been using for my DAC fried up on me after a power outage last week, so I’m looking for something sooner than later.

Thanks for the feedback! 
I’m in the US , so JS-2 has no additional fees or VAT, etc for me.
