Thx!
Hi!

The SMS-200 UltraNeo is available in a range of input voltages: 6.5V-8.5V, 9V, and 12V. So, you can order it so it will work with a whole range of 3rd party linear power supplies.

I ordered a 12V so that I could use the 12V side of my Keces P3 LPS (it will power two devices via separate outputs) to power that if I wanted, and the 5V/7V/9V side for something like a Sonore Optical Module or 9V for an EtherREGEN, etc.

I really like it a LOT. Its an outstanding unit. And, you can get with a 50 Ohm coax input for an external clock if you want to go "all in". If you have the budget you can get the Special Edition with trick caps and the like.

It has performed absolutely flawlessly in the 10 months or so I've had it. A notable jump over the Sonore microRendu. Outstanding Roon endpoint; I'm listening to it out now as I write this.

Hans Beekhuzen is of the view its only surpassed by the Aries G2 at ~4X the price.

Highest possible reco from me.

+1 I have it with the 12v power supply and clock input.

Plus I have an etherregen coming to go optical and take everything to the next level.

Great stuff, it finally equals spinning a disc.

Yeah, it does.

Just wait 'til you get the EtherREGEN...

You will find going optical reduces the noise floor even further.

And...no leakage current to cause phase noise!
