USB power supplies

Postby callen24 » Mon Jan 28, 2019 2:19 pm

It seems a number of products are now powered via USB sockets.
Given our previous experience with power supply supgrades are they AVAILABLE for USB at a reasonable cost because they are widely used?
I was thinking about this after connecting chromecast audio

Jason Stoddard, founder of Schiit, posted about this on Head-fi a few weeks ago as their latest product is powered by a micro USB socket. He said he had tested numerous ones and surprisingly the best he had tested were the ones Apple supply. His comment is in one of the Asides on post 38597 on this page —> https://www.head-fi.org/threads/schiit- ... t-14496840
