I'm going to buy a 2nd hand Mini and I'm debating between these 2 power supplies by iFi:

iPower
iPower X

The 'X' model is €50 more expensive than 'standard'. The question is if I would notice a difference in sound between one and the other, whether using the internal DAC or an external one.

I don't need a more expensive Ultra Low Noise Linear PSU because my Hi-Fi gear is modest (and I don't want to pay more).
On the other hand, I already know that the recommended voltage is 15V, right?

Thanks in advance

Don't bother .... Get the Mini with whatever Power Supply it comes with.
It is one of the many bogus audiophile myths.
