Hands down the JS-2 is my most expensive power supply. It makes the 95th percentile when it comes to expensive toys in terms of cost. Why do I spend so much money on power? Some says “bits are just bits"! For me, this is less of “a fool and his money are soon parted", but more a case of “shut up and take my money".
The JS-2 is that good!
Placed an order immediately after listening to a modified unit at a local audiophile’s place. There was a wait time as only a limited number of JS-2s are made every month. But once it was shipped, it got here quickly - sent via FedEx on Thursday (California, USA) and delivered the following Monday (Perth, Australia).
A more in-depth review will be posted later as I don’t have my primary DAC to audition this. My intention is to run this baby in for a week before I even listen to it.
This is just a quick unboxing for now, a beautiful unit indeed.
If you have a NAS somewhere in your home and it has a wired connection to your primary computer player rig, you may want to try PXE booting. What this means is your operating system for the primary computer player rig is actually stored on the remote NAS, instead of a SSD.
Extremely negative perceptions (and often derogatory remarks) about Audiophiles and their choices are often bandied about on the Internet as “click baits". These discussions always dominate hifi discussions on the net, generate a lot of hits, and likely creating increased revenues (or popularity) for the click-bait providers.
Unfortunately most audiophiles don’t have the insecurity (or time) to mass debate with these people and the negative perceptions simply get reinforced and further reinforced and become public opinion.
