I wouldn't say expert, far from it,...
I had better have the cables back if it makes you want to work you should relax.The earth bats are running lights in my shed.The Peltier diodes do and are still be used by a couple of Uni's and on the Space Station on the back of the solar panels. ) Look out for the review on the new power cord in the new year. And the other electronic stuff we are doing, it going to be fun year for me making new things, LDR Pot done just waiting for PCB,s
Had a chance to try this today.Changing psus was a faf, but yielded interesting preluminary results.I did the comparisons sighted, the pluggings and unpluggings were too fiddly and risky to entrust to any member of my family. I'd like to repeat blind in future with a more trusty pair of hands to help.In short the NVA's psu seemed significantly better. The switching Asus psu sounded less sparkly, vibrant and real. The NVA psu just cut a sharp edge around all the sounds - better dynamics and imaging. Just more "NVA" really.The difference between the 2 psus was more than I had consciously expected, given that it was only the mother board's psu that was being changed (the sound card was powered by the NVA psu throughout). But what do I know about computer audio. I feel more listening investigation is required, but so far, so good. :-)

I think branching out beyond cabling will work very well for you Col, you have a lot to offer the industry.It must be contagious, as John Westlake has finished his tenure working for IAG/Audiolab in China and is setting up independently as LakeWest - continuing what he did with Audiolab and also making some amps (which he reckons will be quite unique).Are we seeing a reconnaissance of the British HiFi industry? (maybe this post should be a thread on its own?)
