I recently set up my Volumio / VIM3L / Tone Board streamer, with some help from your helpful members. I’ve taken a free 30-day trial with TIDAL and I’m really impressed by the sound quality of the TB. I’m currently using the Khadas 24W power adapter, but I’m thinking I could improve this further with separate linear PSUs for the VIM and TB. I’ve read good reviews of the Allo Shanti and have the following queries that I’m hoping someone might help me with.
Firstly, do you agree the Shanti is a good choice for the money?
What’s the best way to connect the 2 boards separately. The Shanti comes with DC 5.5/2.1 jacks, I guess I can use a jack to USB-C adapter to power the VIM3L. What about the Tone Board? do I need a mod to the 40 pin connector (to get to pins 1 and 21 I think?) or can the USB-C be used instead of the power from the VIM?
The Shanti comes with one 1A supply and one 3A supply, which should be used for which board?
