Default SilentSwitcher - mains-free +/-15V and 6.5/5/3.3V power

Well, I did it! My SilentSwitcher is now live at Kickstarter!
Looking forward to getting this on the road!

I saw it in the audioexpress newsfeed! I've been waiting for this so I ordered two! It's a very nice design and the price is good as well.

Wow! I am happy!

I have plenty 15V power supplies, but nothing just like this!
I'm wondering if this is a sign of the future for power supplies in line level stages and reserved myself some for testing :-)

Well I spoke with Joachim Gerhard this weekend at an audio show, he had a phono preamp powered by a prototype SilentSwitcher, he was very enthusiastic!

No hum, no noise, great sound, and very important: no need to design & build 'hi-end' mains power supplies, which may even need a separate box for best performance! Think of the hassle and cost saved.

So in that sense I (obviously ;-) think it is a great new way to power small signal stuff.

Edit: important for small manufacturers: no mains inside the equipment means no certification cost. Another significant savings.

I really love this product. It speeds up my builds tremendoes without loss of performance.
I am critical because for my phono stages i need clean power.
This is miles away from older designs that had trouble.
I had never thought that i use a switcher one day but now it has happened.

I also just saw it on the AudioXpress newsletter. I signed up for a pair. I will try them on a phono stage and Bruno Putsey Balanced Preamp.
