External power supply options

Mytek Liberty DAC (also Brooklyn DAC and ADC) is equipped with an input for external 12VDC power supply. An improvement in sound quality (particularly in the deeper bass and soundstage) can be seen when using a larger power supply. To see the effect, the power supply must be substantially larger (5 to 10 times) than the internal 30W power supply.
