  Stack Audio is proud to announce a new linear power supply for the LINK streamer. Designed by audio engineer Gordon Rankin, the LINK PSU is optimised to work specifically with the LINK making it sound better than ever. Why is linear better? Switching mode power supplies produce ‘noise’ which is typically transmitted as a high-frequency waveform that can mask and distort the actual information package (digital signal). This noise is unwanted energy that easily migrates onto parts of the circuit where it’s not wanted. The conscientious designer will filter and regulate the power supply and the data feeds in a product. The LINK has extensive regulation and re-clocking circuits to do just this. Avoiding introducing power supply noise in the first place makes the life easier for the LINK’s circuits which are also working on cleaning the input signal from the source components such as PCs, laptops and local network drives.</p>   When you stop noise entering an audio rendering device like the LINK you tend to experience a more enjoyable and immersive sound. Hi fi enthusiasts will use different phrases to describe the effects they hear but, in simple terms, with less noise or distortion the music is replayed more faithfully   Another benefit is that the LINK PSU is a system-wide upgrade, as the low noise nature of the supply will help keep switching supply distortion from affecting the rest of your system  
  • 100% Made in the UK
  • Provides a cleaner supply to the LINK
  • The LINK requires a number of regulated voltages, each one will have less noise
  • The VBUS (power on the USB line) will be much cleaner resulting in less noise and errors on USB buss
  • Better isolation from the mains
  • Switching supplies have a very small isolation transformer for isolation as well as optical feedback. The LINK PSU provides complete isolation to and from the LINK
  • Less digital switching noise on the rest of your mains
  • Analogue audio equipment will sound better
  • Noticeable difference in the overall sound quality
  • High-quality cables included
  • 18v 2.5amps
  • Comes with a set up manual
