I'm curently using the MF DAC to power my CD Player - would I notice any sonic improvements by adding a Musical Fidelity Triple X-170 PSU to power the CD player instead of taking the power from the DAC? Been offered one at a good price but can't really test it out - just wondered if any one has any experience with this?

Like a Cyrus PSXR, adding a separate power supply unit is said to enhance the sound, but in my opinion, not by very much. I have listened to a Cyrus system with and without the PSXR, and I would say, to my ears at least, that the sonic improvements measured between 5-10%.

You have to have a listen yourself to determine if this is worth the added outlay in monetary terms.

I don't think it worth worry about. DAC V8 is top of the bargain list at the moment, the price they are selling at in the last few weeks (certain dealers) is hard to beat on sound per pound preformance!

Thaiman, how about a picture of you rather than that muppet Elvis? Then if I bump into you in Sainsburys I will say hello.
