  1. This is true - the PSU for motherboard/CPU/SSD is still important. But the PSU for the USB Card is equally important. Best regards, Marcin Ostapowicz JPLAY & JCAT Founder
  2. Many of our customers asked for a more affordable linear power supply than the OPTIMO 3 DUO, the best power supply in our portfolio so far. And this is what we intend to deliver with the Initio 3. Fundamentally based on the OPTIMO 3 DUO design, we carefully optimized cost to preserve as much performance of the bigger brother as possible. We are finalizing mechanical design and preparing for the launch. The first batch of the Initio 3 will be produced in January 2021. KEY DESIGN FEATURES: TRULY LINEAR POWER SUPPLY The Initio 3 will be a truly linear power s
  3. Good to hear! It will sound a lot better when it goes through burn-in :) Regards, Marcin
  4. There will be one model with some options that will affect the price. I will announce the price when the product is ready. Best regards, Marcin Ostapowicz JPLAY & JCAT Founder
  5. Full ATX and ATX 2.0 compliant without any DC-DC converters?
  6. It's not an ATX power supply as far as I know.
  7. 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.
  8. The AUX connectors are planned for external devices such as external drives, CD rippers, network switches etc. It doesn't make sense to use AUX for powering computer components, because for that you can use ATX outputs - it's the same quality in this case
  9. 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.
  10. The 5V in the OPTIMO ATX is shared with ATX lines. The quality is exceptional, but slightly below optimo for that purpose. What is possible for 3A, is not for 23A in terms of noise level. Low-current devices will benefit from Optimo 3 Duo. That said, I think the OPTIMO ATX will be an attractive all-in-one package..
  11. You did not say you're using a fiber optic converter. Yes, there was one report before. I do not see what can we change in the design of the XE card to improve the compatibility with monoprice fiber optic converter. If you're not satisfied with a product, you can return it for a refund.

  12. Which PSU are you using with the card? Does the card detect a memory stick when the system doesn't output the sound? Regards, Marcin
  13. Only 2 pins in the LP4 molex are connected: 5V and GND (RED and BLACK wires) Thank you for the report! It will keep improving up to 250 hour mark. Enjoy :) Best regards, Marcin Ostapowicz JPLAY & JCAT Founder
  14. Boxes with USB Cards XE are here :) We will be busy today preparing packages for you guys. Please check your email accounts for tracking numbers. I will post a message when the packages are picked up by UPS. Best regards, Marcin
  15. The cards are still in customs agency They should release the packages today as I was contacted yesterday by UPS customs agent about translation. They usually release shipments afterwards. Regards, Marcin
