3 Amps of musicality
Ranging from 5 to 24 V*, this small package carries a big punch over the full bandwidth with an incredible low noise floor
*20-24V versions are 2.2A max.
Here's where it comes from...
A well designed circuitry, smart PCB design, grade A components, a sturdy aluminium housing and the drive to bring out something special in any sound system make up for a nifty and potent supercapacitor linear power supply with a very small footprint that will find a place in even the smallest of environments.
There is more to it!
It’s not a case of throwing in some premium components and expect instant succes. They need to work in harmony to get an optimal result. It all starts with a clear concept of goals, how to achieve them, and painstaking testing: by measurements and by many hours of listening.
"This rightness was a perfect example of the whole is greater than the sum of its parts."
"I would imagine the Farad Super3 would compete well with power supplies that are three times the cost, so I think it's the best buy for the price and will receive my nomination for the 2022 Stereo Times Most Wanted Component Award."
"The Farad Super3 is clearly a first rate power supply upgrade"
"It's built to a higher standard than most and doesn't take up much space which is also a bonus. The price reflects these factors but seems very reasonable given the sound quality upgrade provided."
Anatomy of your Super3 Power Supply
What makes the Super3 stand out from the others
Hf Pi-filter smoothing section
Low ESR capacitors and Hf common mode choke filtering reduce ripple and Hf noise from mains and rectifiers. In total there are 6 pi-filter sections in a Super3 to reduce Hf noise to a minimum before and after regulation. Low frequency noise (ripple) is fully eliminated by the double regulation and supercapacitors.
AC Inlet, Fuse & Fuse holder
From a Furutech Rhodium AC inlet to a gold plated fuse in a holder with gold plated contacts... Better conductance from point zero onwards leads to better performance.
Super Capacitor Power Bank
Supercaps tuned to the voltage of the power supply provide a capacitance of 1F (1.000.000uF) to 3.3F (3.300.000uF), depending on voltage. This bank acts like a virtual battery, supplying the final low noise regulation with total stable clean input power. All this results in pure dc voltage with the lowest noise floor thinkable over the full bandwidth.
Custom wound transformer
Casted triple shielded mil-spec high-inductance transformer for high supply duty cycle (and low rectification noise) and very low AC leakage current.
Voltage change service
Depending on the initial output voltage from your power supply, we can change the output voltage in our workshop. Since each supply is fully optimized to its specific voltage, both the supercap module and mains transformer need to be replaced for this change.
