What are the 2 drawbacks of linear power supply?
In summary, the disadvantages of linear power supplies are higher heat loss, a larger size, and being less efficient in comparison to the SMPS. The primary issue attributed to the linear power supply’s inadequacy in high-power applications is its size and weight.
Does a linear power supply make a difference?
The benefits of linear mode power supplies include simplicity, reliability, low noise levels, and low cost. A linear power supply has simple construction and design making them less complex as compared to a switching power supply. The simple design makes it easier to operate and maintain.
Does power supply matter for DAC?
There isn’t really a strong correlation between PSU size/wattage on a DAC and objective quality.
