PSU1-Enigma Micro-Signal Power Supply

PSU1-Enigma

Meant for the Accession MC, the PSU1-Enigma also powers the Majestic Pre/DAC to new heights

Stating the obvious, what you hear from any amplifier or preamp is because current flows from a power supply and then back to it. Basic understanding sees that It leaves by one terminal and returns to another.

Actually, it leaves from its origin somewhere in the power supply and has to get back there. Signal current, no matter how well it is treated by the phono stage, must negotiate the inner workings of the power supply and return to its origin. Knowing that origin and how it gets back to it is crucial in understanding how best the micro-signal current involved with moving coil, returns to its origin with the least possible disturbance.

The Enigma solution was to lower the dissipation factor, improving dielectric absorption (similar to PTFE and polypropylene) for greater frequency stability such that all frequencies of signal current are treated more equally. And additionally: fine tuning its Kelvin paths and giving it a new DC cord and lockable outlet.

The result is greater clarity when using the Accession MC phono stage, in fact it's like getting the improvement the standard issue Accession MC provides, all over again.

Dropping dissipation factor also increased ripple current handling by 35%, and when tried with the more current hungry Majestic Pre/DAC, a significant improvement to the solidity of the sound was evident. The PSU1-Enigma "without DC cord" option is available for the Majestic Pre/DAC in the purchasing panel to your right.

Dealers as well as early adopters of the PSU1-Enigma have found subjective improvements with our other products too. Although we're not advertising which here, it's well worth trying a PSU1-Enigma through our loaner program or with the help of your HiFi System Components dealer.

If you recently bought an Accession MC with standard PSU1 we can offer you a trade-up deal: please write "Dear John, ..." on our contact form and ask him how.

... just try adding the Enigma PSU to it instead of the normal PSU and then you WILL hear what the Accession C is really capable of

...the MC version, especially with the Enigma 1 PSU lifts MC performance yet again, and if you only ever use MCs then this is definitely the way to go!

PSU1 - 24V DC Power Supply

phono preamp

The PSU1 will give you a sonic improvement over the basic 24V DC power supply

... the benefit it [the PSU1] brings to the already strong performance is immediate. The low noise floor drops away even further and the very slight leanness to the midrange is reduced, helping thinner recordings sound a little fuller without any detrimental effect on the speed and musical agility with complex bass routines. The same slightly dark character of this phono stage partnered with the van den Hul cartridge is retained, which may or may not appeal, but helps to lend it an urgency that is extremely appealing to my ears.
-Hi-Fi Choice Recommended Review of the Revelation C phono amp

My Audion Silver Knight pre has a superb valve phono stage, but only one, I needed two. Enter a 'White Knight' in the form of Graham Slee. He happily supplied two of his GramAmp2 phono stages. These are wonderful devices for beer money and my experience with them made me consider them capable of showing up front-end differences even at the high-end. I was right... Graham even included the optional bigger [PSU1] power supplies, which managed to lift the performance, particularly the sense of scale and openness, to a point where at times they were a match for the Audion stage...
