The Hypsos really did it. More dynamics, better bass performance...
- Morten Mohr & Marius Smolinski, Germany
HYPSOS defines a brand new category of a hifi products. It’s not a simple power supply but an audio component of its own – an equally (or even more) important part of a setup as any other. HYPSOS offers a selection of unique features and even accounts for future software improvements – the device is software controlled with as few hardware dependent elements as possible. The most important features are:
Hybrid Power System
Linear/switching hybrid design to get the advantages from both techniques - low ripple and noise as well as fast transient response and high efficiency.
Distinct user levels
Using pre-configured settings from the list of supported devices or setting custom parameters manually. Wide continuous ouput voltage range of 5-30V with up to 6A of current delivered to the load. HYPSOS is as universal a device as it gets.
Sweet Spot Tuning (SST)
Possibility to fine tune the output voltage for the best sound. The voltage level can be safely adjusted on the fly to allow easy comparison testing.
4T Sensing Design (4TSD)
Ensuring the exact voltage level precisely at the point of the powered device DC input terminal - special cable design and feedback to ensure flat voltage at every moment. This technique eliminates the harmful effects of the cable's resistance effectively improving transient response.
Compatibility with Apple TV remote, Trigger in/out connector; possibility to automate power-up of the devices with standby mode even without dedicated trigger connection.
Extremely safe to use
Automatic Transformer Voltage Adjust (ATVA), Electronic Output Voltage Polarity Switch and overvoltage, current limit and short protection. Settings lock to prevent accidental change of the parameters.
Detailed and revealing yet unfatiguing sound
Makes your current audio setup perform to its potential. Tweak the sound modifying the voltage level on the fly and use the preferred combination of the 4-Terminal Sensing and Spread Spectrum Mode settings.
Check out which products are compatible with Hypsos. Compatibility list
Extensive and easy to update list of compatible devices is flashed right into the device to make the Hypsos set-up experience straight-forward and safe.
Electronically controlled output voltage and DC plug polarisation allows you to power a lot of equipment without the need of purchasing different product or cable versions. Before the output power is applied you are always asked for the confirmation of the parameters set - whether for the device chosen from the list or entered manually.
Sweet Spot Tuning or as we call it SST is a super unique possibility to experiment with a different voltage level supplied to your device. You can adjust the level (in the safe range described by the device's manufacturer) of output voltage on the fly and be sure not to damage your unit.
“The Ferrum HYPSOS, is a game changer, not only as an improvement over the standard power supplies, but as a versatile addition to many DACs. The HYPSOS, really is THE upgrade path to take if you want to hear what your digital front end can produce. “
David Robson, UK.Hifi reviewer at Hifi Pig Magazine.
Unique output cable design: two wires delivering the power and two wires providing the feedback to ensure flat voltage at every moment. This technique eliminates the harmful effects of the cable's resistance effectively improving transient response. The current delivery speed at the powered device's input is significantly improved.
HYPSOS comes with one of the two high quality DC power cables fitted with a 5.5x2.5mm and a 5.5x2.1mm DC plug, to connect to the most commonly used DC inlets. If you need different type of DC plug please contact us.
Did you know that the Ferrum HYPSOS is the only audio power supply device on the market today where you can choose the output voltage settings from an internal list containing many suited devices?
Did you know that the Ferrum HYPSOS is the only device on the market today where you can tune for your devices’ power supply voltage sweet spot?
Did you know that the Ferrum HYPSOS combines the best of two powering worlds by combining the advantages of a linear power supply with the advantages of a switching power supply?
Did you know that the Ferrum HYPSOS will reveal detailed and completely unfatiguing sound?
Did you know that the Ferrum HYPSOS uses 4T Sensing Design to ensure the exact voltage level measured at the devices input terminal? This eliminates the harmful effects of the cable's resistance effectively improving transient response and ripple rejection.
Best kept secret of HYPSOS and the Ferrum Power Link (FPL)
Did you know that the Ferrum HYPSOS has a unique property? When used together with a Ferrum Power Link connected to a Ferrum OOR or ERCO (and any future Ferrum product with the proprietary 4-pin connector) HYPSOS can do even better measurements resulting in making a Ferrum product get the most out of the combination with HYPSOS
