Jeff Rowland Power Storage Unit - PSU


Introduction date Q3 in 2013

The Super Capacitor Power Supply offers the advantages of battery power, without the drawbacks. It has two outputs and can power the Corus and the Aeris at the same time.

The PSU is an external Ultracapacitor-based power supply that can be applied to deliver DC to Corus, Aeris, and the upcoming Criterion replacement. It is likely that PSU may yield a great deal of transient authority to applicable devices. In theory, it should be capable of delivering quite a bit of authority, because supercaps are capable of very quick power surges, while NiMH batteries are not.

You can’t apply PSU to any power amps…. Just not enough current for that. It was designed for low current applications only. PSU is absolutely NOT compatible with the now withdrawn Criterion or Capri any other older preamplifier.

Ultracapacitors provide the Aeris DAC and Corus preamp a pure DC power source for expanded soundstage and musical presence.
