PLiXir Elite BDC Dual-Output Power Supply

 

The Elite BDC (Balanced Direct Current) Power Supply by PLiXiR benefits from two stages of regulation- an open-loop first-stage and a closed-loop feedback second stage. This means that the Elite BDC can scrub noise out of your power source, helping your hifi setup sing.

 

What PLiXiR say

 

The PLiXiR Elite Dual Output version is designed to power two devices with the SAME Voltage, and the sum of output current (amps) for the two devices does not exceed the limit of the PLiXiR power supply. This is an elegant and cost effective way to power two equipment with one PLiXiR power supply. The performance is vastly superior to the popular Y-splitter cable method. Both output on the power supply shares the same source and have the same performance.

The PLiXiR Elite BDC balanced DC power supply is designed to reduce all the noise types present in a DC power supply. Upon deep studies, it is apparent that traditional DC power supply circuit cannot eliminate them all.  These include Ground loop current and diode rectification/pollution noise.

PLiXiR's ground-up approach begins with a balanced AC power design, along with a two-stage voltage regulation consisting of an open-loop first-stage pre-regulator and a closed-loop feedback second stage. Their unique balanced AC power circuit effectively removes ground loop noise and reduces the diode noise. 

The first stage pre-regulation filters the bulk of the noise, specifically the high-frequency noise, and the heat from the second stage voltage regulator. The 2 stage regulation design as a "gate" to prevent the downstream noise from crossing back to the AC power hands.

 

True balanced power can only be attained if every component along the chain is purpose-built for such transmission. Mating Plixir’s Signature Balanced Power Cable with Plixir’s Balanced AC Conditioners and Balanced DC linear power supplies, we now have a total system and solution for balanced power transmission – the world’s first fully Balanced Power Delivery system.

The new Plixir Signature BPC is custom-designed from the ground up for balanced power delivery and transmission to your Hifi equipment. When used in conjunction with the Elite and Elementa BAC Balanced Power Conditioners, noise is rejected throughout the whole chain, right up to your equipment.

 

The Problem

 

DC Power Supplies are traditionally SMPS-based (switched-mode power supply) due to cost reasons: SMPS are cheaper, lighter to ship and accept a wide range of mains AC voltage.

Aftermarket linear DC power supplies aim to replace these for improved performance, but 99% of conventional linear DC power supplies on the market suffer flaws:

  • Isolation of noise from the load to the mains AC is often not considered. This can potentially pollute the AC mains and from there, your equipment too.
  • Traditional diode bridge noise injection to the signal ground is not taken into account at all. The higher the current delivered by the DC power supply, the bigger amount of noise will be injected to the system ground.

 

Designed to Provide Excellent Noise Specs and Safety

 

3-Stage Power Supply

PLiXiR’s range of DC power supplies, besides delivering excellent noise specs and safety, have considered the above points for their designs. Some of their unique design aspects include:

  • A two-stage voltage regulation design consisting of a very low-noise, open-loop design, discrete transistor, class-A driver, pre-regulator first stage, and a closed-loop feedback regulator second stage. The first stage filters the bulk of the noise and takes away the heat from the second stage voltage regulator. The two-stage regulation acts as a “gate” to prevent the downstream noise from travelling back to the AC power mains. It eliminates all types of noise downstream to your equipment and prevents pollution upstream to the AC mains. PLiXiR like to call this method the brawn and the brain methoud. The pre-regulation stage (the brawn) handles most of these issues and isolates the actual regulator state (the brain) from these ill artefacts. Free of these influences, the actual voltage regulator will be able to perform optimally in terms of noise, slew rate and output impedance- under all rated load conditions.
  • For the Elite Balanced DC power supply, PLiXiR further improved their performance with a Balanced design. With this design, there are no signal ground noise injections by rectifier diodes, and it allows the elimination of ground-loop problems. Switching noise contributions are from AC-DC rectification diodes are also reduced by half compared to conventional design. The downside is that the customised transformer will need to be doubled in size compared to a conventional design size to deliver the same power. The weight and size of the linear power supply will increase. We feel the benefits more than outweigh the issues involved.

About PLiXiR Products

PLiXiR power products are James Soh’s take on effective power solutions. Power’s (AC and DC) influences to hifi equipment’s performance are extremely profound and cannot be understated. Your hifi system cannot function without power; it is the blood of your hifi anatomy. Needless to say, variations in the quality of power delivered to your equipment affects them greatly. In many cases, users of simple systems with attention to correct AC power treatment derive musical and enjoyable performances than high end systems that neglected this aspect. It is to address this that James decided to fully focus our efforts to design PLiXiR power products.

PLiXiR power products have to satisfy set targets:

  1. Real, fundamental improvement based on sound engineering principles.
  2. Strictly neutral, natural and pure in tone. The right foundation for your equipment to perform to their potential.
  3. Timeless and reliable long term usage.

From James’s experience, the best engineering solutions to problems are often the simplest. He discovered from research that balanced power delivery fulfils the criteria elegantly on many levels. The trade-off is that good balanced power solutions are heavy and bulky. There are also solutions out there that are quasi-balanced but masquerading as true balanced products. It is thus PLiXiR’s mission to promote the effective use of true balance power into home hifi use.

To our end PLiXiR focuses on designing the best balanced power products in the world, using the best commercially available components. In particular, the PLiXiR Elite range of balanced AC Power products are truly cost no object creations. PLiXiR is also the first company in the world to offer a complete balanced power delivery system including Balanced AC power conditioner, with Balanced Power cables (for end to end balanced power) and Balanced DC power supplies for equipment that needs DC power.

Going forward PLiXiR will introduce more products based on effective balanced power delivery, for all types of systems and applications.
