Linn CD12/Ikemi Rescue Kit
The Teddy7/2 power supply can be used to replace the small AC plug-in power adaptor that comes with many audio equipment, streamers etc, and provides significant improvement in sound quality.
The design is based on the experience gained with the TeddyCap family of power supplies for Naim Audio equipment, and uses the same technology.
The CD-12 Rescue kit is aimed at replacing the internal power supply (“Brilliant”) of Linn CD players, such as Genki, Ikemi and CD-12.
This rescue kit is targeted for self-installation by a tech professional, and includes the following components:
- External power supply, based on TeddyXPS.
- Quick-connect adapter for installation inside the CD-Player.
The external power supply brings the Linn CD players
The small power supply which is provided with most types of equipment is based on a technology called Switch Mode. Using this technology it is possible to create small, efficient, and low cost power supplies. Unfortunately due to their method of operation (high frequency capacitor charging), these power supplies are also very noisy, causing degradation in sound quality. As an alternative, several after market power supplies exist which are usually based on Linear Regulators. These regulators provides an improvement over the original power supply but as can be seen on the graph below are still limited in their performance.
The Teddy7/2 power supply is based on a superior regulator called SuperTeddyReg and provides a significant improvement over linear regulators.
The following graph shows the noise level measurements of the original wall wart power supply (red line), an alternative power supply based on a Liner Regulator (blue line), and the Teddy7/2 power supply (black line). The brown line is a zero Volt reference which is actually the measurement equipment internal noise. As can be seen the Teddy7/2 power supply noise level is very close to the zero Volt reference.
