    'Funny' you should mention that. I was almost going to sell one of my Touches. I even went as far as packing it up. Even though it was in the original box I thought about putting bubble wrap around the unit. But I came to the conclusion that it would have made things worse because there is very little room between the box lid and the touch, so the bubble wrap would be pressing against the screen.

    So, yeah, it's entirely possible.

    Thanks. I may eventually try to open it if it gets too annoying.

    Ultimate Power Supply for your Touch

    Just let you know that the UpTone Audio new LPS-1 power supply will make a quite good improvement to your touch.
    For what you get price is not bad. (And you can keep using your LPS)

    What specific aspects does it improve?

    So you've compared this with the stock power supply? What differences are you're hearing? I would have to see some measurements to back your claim.

    Wow that looks insanely overengineered (or under, get it out the door) -- can there be any more components on that board?!? Isn't this Vinnie Rossi's idea?

    Hope no one minds if I jump into an old thread, but..................

    We get questions about things of this nature, all the time. So, if I may be permitted, let me make this one observation.

    We have noticed, from time to time, there was a 60 Hz spur, in our phase noise measurements. (Measuring and quantifying clocks is one of the main tasks, in the other side of the business.) It would come and go, and we had a hard time nailing down its cause.

    Turns out it was the 5 V wall warts, that we sometimes used to warm up clocks, before sticking them in the main test fixture.

    The reason I point this out it is the same brand, and model, that frequently comes with Squeezebox products.

    Granted, this noise is pretty far down, in the noise. But, it is there, and we could occasionally see its effects.

    Can anyone hear this, on their Squeezebox? I dunno.............maybe, maybe not. But, if we can measure it, the possibility exists that one can hear it.

    For the record, other brands are as bad, or worse. Some models, of the same manufacturer, are better. The SMPS we have looked at seem to be all over the map, and there is no clear-cut good, or bad, brand/model.

    LPS have their own issues.

    The answer is there is no 100% correct answer. And we tossed a small handful, of wall warts, just to be sure.

    Everything

    Sorry. I have not seen your question before now.

    It's hard for me to describe, but in my friends setup the difference was really huge. You have to try for yourself to really believe.

    You will find a lot more about how brilliant the LPS-1 is over at CA.

    I can't tell you who got the idea. The LPS-1 came out first. Yes it's same technology. Vinnie is spending money on having a patent. His PS is more expensive and have higher ratings.

    You can serial connect the LPS-1 for higher voltage, but as a rule not parallel, so you are limited to 1,1 or 1,2 A.
