Product Description

The Musical Fidelity V-PSU is a very impressive, robust addition to the V-Series of compact audiophile components. It is a high performance, choke regulated external power supply that will power up to three V-Series components. The V-PSU makes notable improvements to the sonic performance of the V-DAC digital-to-analog converter, V-CAN headphone amp, and V-LP phono preamp. Inside the sleek compact housing of the V-PSU lies a sophisticated DC power supply. The ultra compact high µ core transformer has very low hysteresis. The V-PSU has three completely separate power supplies, each with its own dedicated transformer winding, for powering up to three V-Series components. As a result, crosstalk between PSUs is virtually zero. Musical Fidelity has taken care of every detail so that the B+ from the V-PSU is very high quality. The low ESR high capacity power supply caps are complemented by milspec 'blue' PTCs. The whole system is tuned for optimally matched output impedance and power supply current capacity. In short the V-PSU gives a real sonic boost to any of the Musical Fidelity V-Series products. You don't know what you're missing until you try one, and you won't believe the sonic heights that V-Series components can reach with the V-PSU.

The good:

1) Same build quality, finish & size as other components in Musical Fidelity (MF) V-Series.
2) Adds an On / Off function to the V-DAC. Can keep it turned off when not being used.
3) Can power up to 3 MF V-series components at the same time.
4) Detachable / upgradeable Power Chord (PC).
5) 'Made in Taiwan' just like the V-DAC. Taiwan is known for making many hi-fi products. Usher Audio is one amongst them.
6) External PSU is an advantage in terms of Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) / Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) free performance.
7) Can be used in 110V - 220V. There are 2 fuse holders inside the V-PSU, one for 110V & the other for 220V operation. Putting the fuse in the right holder does the trick.

The bad:

1) Very basic / cheap Power Chord (PC) & 1.3 mm jacks for such an expensive PSU.
2) The plastic used for the figure 8 power socket in the V-PSU feels delicate & flimsy.
3) It's strange that this product is not listed on MF's website.

Background:

It all started with me wanting to improve the sound on my Zone 2 speakers consisting of a pair of Mordaunt Short 902i bookshelf speakers & also to do more justice to my library of imported (made in E.U.) CD collection. After much thought, search & research, I decided to buy a Digital to Analogue Converter (DAC) instead of a dedicated CD player. This decision was also influenced by the fact that I had started ripping my CDs in WAV (Waveform Audio File Format) & storing them in a LaCie LaCinema Classic Multimedia Player LaCie LaCinema Classic 1 TB USB 2.0 Multimedia Portable External Hard Drive 301864KUA.

Verified Purchase
I gave this a 4 star rating because it's rather expensive for what it is, and that it uses a C7/C8 IEC connector/inlet combo rather than the standard grounded C13/C14 or C15/C16 IEC connector/inlet combo (of which the cable can be upgraded more easily). I use this unit with my Musical Fidelity V-DAC. With the extra juice that it provides, the V-DAC is allowed to reach its potential. It's most noticeable in the lower frequencies where the standard wall wart would almost limit the DAC's ability to extend deep and with weight. This really should have been included with the V-DAC at a higher price point. It's most definitely worth it. Unfortunately, the V-PSU is no longer produced, so if you're on the market for one, jump on what you can find.
