Made a clear and audible difference in my chain. Though I don't use it anymore, as I got a LPS custom built with CRC filtering for the transport board.Any users feeb back for Allo Shanthi LPS. Does it make a major difference in Audio quality compared to standard dc converter.
planning to use with allo usb bridgeIt depends, based on the thing it provides power to.
Example if we attach to raspberrypi which by itself creates noise, then the improvement is not significant.
another example if we use it for a digital - to - digital convertor, then improvement is significant. e.f. ifi convertor.
another example if use in allo signature versions, to power the clean side, improvement is significant. the reason is clean side is mainly used for digital - to - digital conversion and not powering the rpi.
another example if we attach to an external dac which is basic, then it can provide improvement.
As Kannan mentioned, you can first try with a different power source and hear the variations. e.g. try with another mobile charger, try with a mobile power bank , try with mobile power from mobile micro usb, etc. If possible can try with batteries aswell... but 1.5 V and 3 batteries would give 4.5 volts.planning to use with allo usb bridge
I have seen that which is an SMPS. Some have said that shanthi would be better.Allo introduced another low noise power supply "Nirvana", which is quite cheaper compared to Shanti. Its having only one output at 2.85A/5V, in case it help you, is available on Fabtolab.

Trying to power the Allo usb bridge. Looking at getting cleaner sound, better instrument separation.What are you trying to power? What are you hearing?
What difference are you expecting to hear?
Allo themselves claim that Nirvana comes close to Shanti-LPS at a fraction of cost.
Worth checking out.
Well ...Trying to power the Allo usb bridge. Looking at getting cleaner sound, better instrument separation.
I am using the stock PS. There has been good improvement compared with the laptop. Wondering how much more improvement we would get with the LPS.Well ...
I have the Digione (non signature with stock PS), cousin of USBridge. The sound is clean and separation is surprisingly good.
Get the stock PS and try it out. If you feel the DAC is not giving you the above then try out the LPS or low-noise SMPS.
Have punched it through 3 chains (downstream). No gremlins.
That's odd. The USBridge Signature has a type-C socket for power.Cant use a micro usb to power it. Can use only a pin to power it.
I doubt if replacing PS of laptop will make a difference.Does using an Allo Shanti make any difference but replacing the power cable/adaptor for the laptop?
