If anyone has ever thought about upgrading their Squeezebox power supply to a Linear Power Supply, then I have one for sale. If you have a decent Hi-Fi then you will get a much clearer/fuller sound from your Squeezebox.
(See: http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/equipment/0206/midmonth/bolder_modified_slimdevices_squeezebox.htm)

I built my own linear PSU a few months ago and have been extremely pleased with the results. I used a Power One HB5-3 (5V, 3A) PSU with over voltage protection and voltage sensing.

I bought two of these PSU's and have just completed my 'Mark II' PSU, so my Mark I is now for sale - you can see it at:

www.jrobb.plus.com/LinearPSU-5V3A

This is a serious piece of kit and weighs about 2kg. It will come with a standard mains lead and it has been internally fused at 250mA (as recommended). It is fully tested - has been running my Squeezebox3 for the last 4 months. It is wired to run at 240v, but is adjustable.

I am looking for 50 + 10 p&p - 60 to the UK. The first buyer who responds to my email address (just click on my username at the top of this post) will secure the PSU. UK only buyers, please. This is a bargain - to buy the parts only at RS Electronics costs around 80.

Cheers...

I made a post some time ago looking for linear powersupplies, but forgot I made the post and ended up deleting any replies. Can you suggest any that may be available in Canada? Or if I need to custom build one?

Nice pictures - that will help me build my PSU now that I have a
PowerOne supply.

Hope you sell yours.

Robin,

I have to give credit to another user called 'Heuer' who posted similar pictures in the 'Audiophiles Forum'. He also listed the necessary components as part numbers from RS Electronics.

Good luck with the project - It's very satisfying once you have completed the box.

Jon

PS The PSU is now SOLD.
