1  Ultimate Audio Playback / Playback Tweaks and Source related subjects / Re: SUAOKI G500 Portable Power Station 500Wh with a Lithium battery bank on: January 08, 2019, 07:37:24 pm
Hello,

the SUAOKI G500 dropped in yesterday.
The NOS1 is connected to the unit and the SQ improved a lot, more resolution and details. Never heard such a SQ in my room.

The power consumption of the NOS1 is 17W and with the usable battery load of 450Wh the operating time of the station is more than 25h before reloading.

The price is € 359,99 on Ebay Germany.

The SUAOKI G500 should improve the SQ via the NOS1 & Audio PC.

Dartzeels preamp is working with an own similar battery powered solution and that sound is amazing.

Hi Peter,

Thank you, very interesting.

So is the conclusion justified that the benefits of a lpsu over a good fanless switching psu is not necessarily obvious? Of course depending on the pc processor, etc.?


Stanley

Hi,

my only logical explanation from what I'm hearing here is that the "HDPLEX 400W Hi-Fi DC-ATX Converter" seems to have a major impact.

Two years ago I used a laptop and replaced  the SPSU with a LPSU, and the SQ  enhanced obviously, and that is not happening now.

Hi,
following test results with

1.   HDPLEX 400W Hi-Fi DC-ATX Converter + HDPLEX 300W AC-DC
1A. The power consumption of the XXH PC (with a Xeon CPU) is appr. 60 Watts during normal operation.  72 Watts with a „heavy load“ during converting/storing files in „Unattended mode“ into RAM
1B. The surface temperature of both components was appr. 40°C
1C. The improvement of the SQ was very audible compared to the original assembly with the (cooling fan) "Bequiet" PSU

The ambient temperature during the tests/comparison was 26°C

2.   HDPLEX 400W Hi-Fi DC-ATX Converter + 160 Watt HDPlex LPSU
2A. The power consumption of the XXH PC (with a Xeon CPU) is now  appr. 79 Watts during normal operation.  91 Watts at the worst case.
2B. The surface temperature of the HDPLEX 400W Hi-Fi DC-ATX Converter was appr. 40°C,  and  at the 160 Watt HDPlex LPSU appr. 45°C
2C. The difference of the SQ between 1) and 2) is  very subtle, and I can’t say in what direction and it needs more listening.

Conclusion:
The 200watt HDPlex LPSU should work with the HDPLEX 400W Hi-Fi DC-ATX Converter and the components under item 1) are a bargain and should satisfy the owners of the first XXH PC with a XEON CPU.

After looking at the site I think Peter's right, that's why i asked if it replaced that Seasonic PS, cause that's the one I have.


Hi,

Peter is right. That "HDPLEX 300W AC-DC" is a switching unit.
The former PSU is a "Be quiet" brand with a fan.

The power comsumption of the first "XXH PC" is well under 60 Watts. I will start  "power consumption" tests with variuos operation conditions and will connect
a "160 Watt HDPlex LPSU" to the PC and compare the SQ during the day.

The combination with the "HDPLEX 300W AC-DC" presents a superior SQ to the former PSU at present.

Please accept my apologies for the false infomation concerning ..... !

Thanks Joachim! Did this replace a Seasonic fanless  400w PS?

Hi,

yes, it replaces the original PSU installed. The present operating temperatures of the both components are well below 50° C, and stable.
This combination may not be that sophisticated as Peters design shown above, but a LPSU (tested with my laptop two years ago) is an abolute must for an audiophile SQ. The outcome is amazing.

Hi,

bought this - HDPLEX 400W Hi-Fi DC-ATX Converter+HDPLEX 300W AC-DC combo at
https://www.hdplex.com/hdplex-400w-hi-fi-dc-atx-power-supply-16v-24v-wide-range-voltage-input.html

and the SQ improves ..... .  Happy Happy Happy Happy

Hello Peter,

Bloody hell, this is the ultimate music replay component now.  Happy Happy Happy

Lots of more unheard details, and  the music from „ Weather Report“ is unbelievable now.

The upgrade to the NOS1 G3 is a masterpiece and „an absolute must have it“.

Good job ! Peter -> thanx

- I always get error at attachment. Is this also normal?


Hi,

had the same problem with the music root.

By selecting the music folder a new window opens and you have to confirm the root at the OK button at the bottom of the openend window.
