  1. This is my LPS prototype for second choke I have used regular inductor for speaker crossover. I had 1.8mH on hand which fits and simulates very well.
  2. component on the TAIKO, next to Mundorf Mlytic is not a choke. It is most probably a Mundorf EVO foil capacitor mounted into wooden holder, made from panzerholz. Guys, do yourself a favor and learn how to use free tool called PSU Designer. It's easy, widely available and it will allow you to simulate the basic performance of your power supply. You can try different values, different schematics etc. If someone wants to use LC type of filtering for whatever reason, the basic formula to calculate choke inductance is: L = V (dc) / I (mA) For example, if you have 3
  3. I made some comparisons between CLC and CLCLC filtering using PSU Designer and have to confirm that CLCLC provides much better voltage ripple smoothing and filtering. Better in terms of numbers of course. 1,68mV on the output of CLC filter and 70nV after CLCLC filter. Not sure how it influence the sound, but math wise - CLCLC is 24x times less ripple. Hmmm....

  6. I am also burning in a simple PSU recently: Toroidy 300VA transformer with 17VAC output --> shottky bridge --> 33.000uf Epcos Sikorel *B41550 --> Hammond 195G10 choke (5mH, 10A) --> 100.000uf Epcos Sikorel B41550 this is the unregulated part and then is a PCB board with 10A LT1083 voltage regulator board with additional 66.000uf Mlytic at the input, pair of original LT1083 high current regulators followed by Elna Silmic 1000uf on the output. Currently under burn in period. It already makes amazing difference in low frequency response, bass
  7. Few days have passed and I am still impressed. I confirm my initial observations and actually we need to rely on them as in the meantime I made several other changes (as usual) and I am unable to track changes in Ultra OCXO performance :D Life is to short to wait for burn in to finish ;]
  8. Of course. With pleasure. Will let you know after few days. Maybe I will again swap back to ocxo to double check my impressions.
  9. Well, in this case I misunderstood what you've wrote few pages back under "Solution A". Talking about emotions and sound is never easy. Windows 10 Pro AFAIK is installed on my PC.
  10. O.K, Few words of initial observation. First of all I am kind of guy who hates spending money on audio :) I do so quite often in the pursuit of high musical experience, but I cannot say that my observations are usually in line with others. I don't care if a component costs 1EUR or 1kEUR, I try to stay neutral and judge the product mainly with price / performance ratio. My roots are around DIY, so to put you in my shoes for a while: A week or two ago I replaced ELNA cap on HDplex PSU with Mundorf Mlytic and even after 200hours of burn in I cannot say they are definite
  11. I am replacing OCXO with Ultra OCXO on my usb card. OCXO is for sale, drop me PM if interested. Ultra already installed and working. Didn't listened yet, but will make some brief listening within an hour or so.

  14. I also listen on Harbeth although mine are tuned to sound slightly as studio monitor
  15. @Topk thanks for the info. I just want to add that I begun my interest in PC audio 10y ago, playing that time with Audiophileo, Sonicweld Diverter, good USB cables etc. Finally, I was able to dig deep into music presentation and unleash all the details, but the sound was never "musical" or should I say - free of issues caused by poor clock/power/vibration performance. User experience was even worse (one PC as source, second as server, playing music files using command line (WTF!?). I moved to CD players and started to build a CD collection, I had flagship Ayon, Son
