    Do you mean using an IFI as an energizing suppy for the UpTone LPS 1.2,
    or using the LT3045 regulator devices as used inside the LPS 1.2 ?

    I have built a very nice semi-DIY LPSU for my digital audio using various regulator modules, to get hi end performance on the cheap.

    The other question is what voltage and current do you need ?
    Analog: modded Yamaha PX-2, Denon DL-103r, MFA Magus preamp, Mogami/Vampire/DIY cables
    Digital: Firewire ext. HDD, modded Mac Mini server, Intona/Regen/Curious USB chain, (3x)ultralow noise LPSUs
    2-channel: Benchmark DAC2 HGC, Crown XLS2500, Acoustat Spectra 3300, (2x)Velodyne 12" servo subs
    Other: OPPO BDP-103, DIY and Nordost Blue Heaven cables, all speakers and gear floated on DIY rollerblocks

    1) the same principle would seem to be at work in optical s/pdif connections.

    2) SFP optical network input of the type used in some lumin network players would seem to be the future.
    1) Yes: Toslink would be free of signal noise, but in typical implementations it introduces more jitter due to conversion, because the clock is embedded inside the SPDIF signal (synchronous). With optical conversion of Ethernet, it is not sensitive to jitter because the network player will use its own clock (asynchronous).

    thanks -- fortunately my dac will switch over to its internal clock, given a source signal of sufficient quality. so, in my case optical s/pdif is a good way eliminate upstream electrical noise in the signal... but, only up to 96kHz.

    converting the parts of a LAN serving an audio system to fiber with routers/switches having SFP ports which then connect to components having SPF inputs or (less optimally) media converters would seem to be the future.

    again, my knowledge is limited here.

    Re: GigaFoil v4 Inline Ethernet Filter

    I have a J cat Net Card Femto to a local router to the AQVOX SE Switch. This is connected to the GigaFoil V4 that I recieved yesterday. I can tell you the GigaFoil made a bigger difference than the AQVOX switch. This thing has transformed my digital. I am thrilled. I have not tried changing the power supply to the Gigafoil as I love the sound the way it is. I am using the best Wireworld through out. I even ordered Sablon cables and received them yesterday, thinking the brightness I was getting was do to the Wireworld. I have no desire to even try the Sablon. Jeff

    Why not try the Sablon since you have them?

    My hunch is a new linear power supply will do you right!

    Hi Jeff,

    Upgrade the power supply. The stock one isn’t very good. Even the $50 IFI power supply makes a substantial improvement. The Keces P3 will make even more of an improvement but costs more.

    Thank you Jeff for the info. Have you compared Gigafoil alone in the chain vs. Gigafoil + AQVOX SE in the chain?

    I think the question a few of us wondering is if Gigafoil further improves a system that already has AQVOX SE.

    Re: GigaFoil v4 Inline Ethernet Filter

    I already told you that I have the aqvox and when I added the foil to the mix the sound improved. I think what your saying is can you go right from router to foil with same effects?

    Ken what would be better for the foil Keces or Sbooster?

    Jeff,

    I’ve not done a direct comparison. I know people that own the Keces P3 and the SBooster MkII. I’ve been told that both are excellent and significantly better than the IFI that I own.
