Extreme Power Question:
In the Manual under the appropriately titled "Advice for HiFi OCD" it states: "At a minimum AC power should be capable of delivering 2KW of continuous power..."
So, if for instance, one had Iso Transformer with a capacity of 1500 continuous watts before the Extreme would that transformer be underpowered?
Or is the actual power needed by the Extreme more like 480 watts continuous power?
No that needs to be amended. The Extreme draws around 60 watts of continuous power, it can draw up to 320 watts but that is only very short term, like during the first 30 seconds or so after power on. It can also draw more if you perform realtime upsampling. This comment is meant to indicate that a “limited” AC supply can restrict apparant dynamics and scale of the performance.
