JCAT launches no compromise ultra-low noise PSU and Xtreme edition USB Audio card


OPTIMO 3 DUO: No compromise ultra-low noise dual-output linear power supply. Designed to partner JCAT USB & NET Cards, as well as any other component requiring up to 3A load, the OPTIMO 3 DUO will drastically improve every aspect of sound. Features two independent galvanically isolated DC outputs, each capable of delivery up to 3A to load. In contrast to many so called 'linear power supplies' on the market, the OPTIMO 3 DUO does not use any switching power supplies. 12x State-of-the-art LT3045 ultra low noise linear voltage regulators (6x per output) are used. The result is perfectly clean DC voltage with noise level below measuring range (< 2uV). Bespoke massive low induction 100VA transformer with magnetic and electrical shielding, sealed with epoxy resin guarantees noiseless operation and spectacular dynamics. 

The OPTIMO 3 DUO incorporates supreme quality audio grade capacitors. Internal wiring is made of high-purity OCC copper. The enclosure and the layout of the PSU is optimized for lowest possible mechanical noise. All these enhancements, developed through intensive listening tests, significantly raise performance. For pure voltage transmission the OPTIMO 3 DUO comes with high quality sockets from Furutech and Neutrik. Two high quality 1.2m PC-OCC 0.7mm² double shielded DC cables with 5.5mm x 2.1mm DC barrel plugs (2.5 plugs available on special request) are included which guarantee superb connection. For best customer experience the PSU incorporates these protection features: short circuit protection, current limit and thermal overload protection, transient overvoltage protection. Manufactured in EU with either 115/230V input. The price is 1500EUR and includes free worldwide express delivery. Available at jcat.eu
