Default ALLO BOSS DAC 1.2 Performance

Has anyone used the new Boss DAC 1.2 from ALLO?

How does it compare to (1) earlier Boss DAC (2) Piano 2.1 + Kali ?

It surpasses the old versions. I've used both.

I use the Boss 1.2 with the Isolator.. It's a very nice combo.

Looking for a nice PSU for them both now.

What is meant by isolator?

I have the older boss dac. I am using it with an IFI 5V power adapter. The result is improved quality of sound as compared to the use of Allo adapter.

What does isolation between boards (RPI & boss dac) do?

If I am feeding RPi and Dac with separate low noise DC sources, will an isolator help?

I switch from the HifiBerry DAC+ Pro to the Allo Boss1.2 and the boss 1.2 sound much better but why a isolator? I removed the jumper on the Allo Boss 1.2 and powered both. Is't that the same as an isolator?

Is removing the jumper on the Allo Boss 1.2 not the same?


JUMPER ON:
1> Feed power ONLY to the BOSS >> it will feed the RPI
2> feed power to the ONLY RPI >> it will feed the BOSS
**JUMPER OFF:**
Feed power to the BOSS and the RPI individually.
