Question Hypex UcD best upgrade ?

hi

I have 1 SMPS 400, 2 UcD 180hg amps

what would make the biggest difference in sound quality?

- second SMPS400 ? 80 EUR
or
- two HxR regulators ? 60 EUR

thanks

Buying some nice new music for the money would sound best :-)

I'm with vacuphile on this - treat yourself to some good music!

No experience with HxR, but have 2 x UcD 180HG with 1 x SMPS 400 too, and like the sound a lot.

Or Grimm LS1!

The OP is torn between 60-80 EUR upgrades...
