The more power the better I think.
8 sockets to be occupied.
8 amps in 2 active speakers . (2 power cords) 600w each =1200w ( 800 VA)
Extreme from Taiko ( 400 VA)
Totaldac 24 that is 8 boxes solution (one powercord) ( total of around 250VA)
Totaldac Drivers 2 boxes ( 2 power cords) ( 100 VA)
2 external power supplys for USB and Eter Regen ( 2 powe cords) (150 VA)
So total trafos used is 1700 VA
Actually Kris, 'the more power the better' is not the case based on the research I've done. I was advised by a transformer maker that running a smaller transformer at 70% - 80% of its capacity will sound better. 213Cobra was advised something similar by the maker of his Hovland transformer. Perhaps Paul at ZAxis has a view on this?
