RE: MacMini vs Bryston BDP-1 Compared

"I was mistaken, it seems to only have a Paul Hynes upgraded PS."

And I'm not sure that he actually hooked it up. In one post he mentioned that he was waiting for it.

In any case, I would question the benefit of a higher quality (possibly linear) outboard power supply for the Mac Mini. Whatever clean DC from a linear (non switching) power supply you feed into the Mac Mini goes through a number of internal switching regulators anyway to create the various voltage levels required within the little box.

It amuses me that some folks buy into the hype of high quality outboard linear power supplies to feed a device that's just going turn it back into a bunch switching noise using switching regulator modules inside the box.... not to mention all the other switching noise inherent in high speed digital circuits (as found in any Mac or PC).
