The Teddy12/2 power supply can be used to replace the small AC plug-in power adaptor that comes with many audio equipment, routers, streamers etc, and provides significant improvement in sound quality.
The design is based on the experience gained with the TeddyCap family of power supplies for Naim Audio equipment, and uses the same technology.
- Uptone EtherRegen.
- Many professional computer-interface cards, such as Merging Anubis, RME ADI-2Pro, UAD Apollo Twin etc.
- Many routers and switches, such as Netgear, Linksys, etc.
- Many DACs, such as RME ADI-2FS, Chord 2Qute/Hugo etc.
- Streaming products, such as Melco N100/S100.
In general, you’ll experience more clarity, tighter bass, more detail, better dynamics, natural voices, better soundstage etc.
The small power supply which is provided with most types of equipment is based on a technology called Switch Mode. Using this technology it is possible to create small, efficient, and low cost power supplies. Unfortunately due to their method of operation (high frequency capacitor charging), these power supplies are also very noisy, causing degradation in sound quality. As an alternative, several after market power supplies exist which are usually based on Linear Regulators. These regulators provides an improvement over the original power supply but as can be seen on the graph below are still limited in their performance.
The Teddy12/2 power supply is based on a superior regulator called SuperTeddyReg and provides a significant improvement over linear regulators.
The Teddy12/2 power supply is equipped with a high quality cable made of silver plated PTFE insulated wires. The cable capacitance is around 13pF/ft, and its resistance is also very low, around 10 milliohm/ft.
