DDX320 coils

DDX320 coils

Hi,



Currently considering a DDX320 amp - but can I ask what type of output coils are fitted. Ebay page shows toroidal while Hifimediy site shows different - which are current?



Can anybody comment on using this amp with a linear power supply rather than SMPS? Would sound quality suffer?



Thanks for any input,



Dave
Hi, the new version has shielded coils like on hifimediy.com
A good quality linear PSU will also work good.

I'm running a Connex SMPS 32V turned down to 28V. It sounds pretty clean and dynamic.

I prefer Connex over Meanwell SPMPs. It's IMO a clear step up.

Not sure if a linear PS would improve the performance of the DDX320.
Thanks both for the feedback there. I might give linear a try - I remember playing with PSU's for Charlize and a few yrs ago and linear with one of those fancy pants Bybee Music Rails sounded amazing. :)
