Default External PCI Box for LynxTwo

I have long intend to transfer my LynxTwo-A into the external PCI Expansion Box, but instead of using stock SM PSU, I want to build High-Quality linear PSU (with extremely low ripple), to achieve of these two main objectives - to get rid of EMI interference and to give a clean supply.
How much, do you think, it can improve the sound (and the measurements) of my LynxTwo-A ?

Your opinions will be greatly appreciated,

Hi there.

There are Fibre PCI(-e) extensions (as well as Fibre-USB-(3.0)).

Only this way you'll decouple 100% from the PC.

Inmate Ackcheng is using one of those Adnaco devices.

He seems to be quite happy with it. He also applied a separate PS to the extension board.

The nice thing about it is that you theoretically don't have to put a PC inside your audio room anymore. You just run a fibre to your remote server.
That you might consider if you think it's too expensive,
