Do I need two power supplies for the Sanskrit 10th MKII? If I am not using USB audio in.

Hi,

Slightly confused and nothing is clear.

After some research I discovered the SMSL Sanskrit 10th MKII worked noticebaly better if you added an aux power supply, and IMO, it is noticeable.

So using USB in and an aux power supply - but what if only using optical in? As in I don't have a USB audio connection to the device

I am not using the USB in, so, I am confused, in general.

EDIT: Actually can someone recommend a power supply because I have no idea what I'm doing... Currently it's plugged into a USB wall outlet - no idea if this is appropriate. It doesn't matter how many times I read the manual note (and it has been many) I simply don't understand it.

If you're not using the USB function, plug the usb power into the "usb aux" port. I believe it's the one on top.

Yes a regular wall outlet is fine. I read somewhere that a 5v charger is recommended. I think mine is 2 amps, 5 volts. Likely any wall charger would work.
