    X1 Power Supply

    I see the X1 power supply is now available as an aftermarket upgrade for my S1.

    What difference should I hear if I was to upgrade to the X1 power supply? Thx.

    I find more bass weight when we tried the X1 PSU on the S1. Bass has better definition as well. Itís definitely worth while. I also like the thicker cable.

    Re: X1 Power Supply

    Before I got the X1 I upgraded my S1 with an X1 power supply. It has been a while since I did that, so I have forgotten any specific details. However, I remember being immediately pleased with the sound after upgrading. While the S1 was certainly better with the X1 power supply, after getting the X1 I am completely satisfied and have no interest in looking for anything else.

    Yes, the X1 PSU upgrade is available for S1 / A1 / T1 / U1 (not U1 MINI).
