Topic: Additional/Replacement Power Supply

I'm a relatively new owner of an RME ADI-2 FS Dac and loving it so far.

Main purpose of the purchase was for using as and Dac and headphone amp for my PC, but since it sounds so great I also want to use it in with my stereo speaker setup in another room.

Initially I was considering just buying another ADI-2, but a more cost effective solution for the time being would be if I had another power supply which I could have set up in the other room. This way all I'd have to do is move the dac and disconnect/connect the inputs. Moving one power supply every time I do this presents issues with accessing power bricks and cable management.

Is it possible to purchase just the ADI-2 power supply from somewhere, or is there a suitable alternative?

Thanks!

Its possible to get a 2nd power supply.

Thanks, I did see on the RME product page that there is the power supply for the ADI-2. I've just not seen anywhere I can actually buy one unfortunately.

Re: Additional/Replacement Power Supply

This article is missing on the RME website, I found it at Thomann under "RME power supplies":
https://www.thomann.de/de/rme_ntcardbus_x.htm

Not sure whether this is an official RME product, maybe a reference is missing in the manual,
that the name of the RME product is: RME NTCARDBUS-X
And then it should be added to the webserver under Products -> Accessories.

You could also use other power supplys according to the specs in the manual:
External switched power supply, lockable connector, DC 12 V 24 W
Power supply 12V DC, 1.0 A or up
Included power supply: external switching PSU, 100 - 240 V AC, 2 A, 24 Watts

No, it's not. Took me 5 seconds to find it. And it's in the manual as well.

Would something like this be ok? https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B07TVG1M1B/.

Sorry I'm based in Japan so this is in Japanese, but seems like this meets the power requirements.

Re: Additional/Replacement Power Supply

Strange Matthias because I could not find it and my last update of manuals is not too long ago (Sept 2019).
