JCAT OPTIMO S ATX 100% LINEAR COMPUTER POWER SUPPLY RELEASED

The JCAT Optimo S ATX is an audiophile power source unit dedicated to quality audio playback from PC-based transports.

JCAT was founded in 2013 by Marcin Ostapowicz, one of the pioneers of the computer audio movement and the creator of JPLAY software.

Inside the JCAT Optimo S ATX Linear Power Supply

JPLAY AND JCAT

Marcin, the JPLAY & JCAT Founder, told us: “The market lacked a genuine audiophile-grade power supply capable of driving high-performance computer-based audio transports. Most of the available solutions were designed with general-purpose usages in mind, such as office work and gaming”.

JCAT OPTIMO S ATX

With the introduction of the JCAT Optimo S ATX, Marcin says that computer HiFi enthusiasts can remove switching or partially linear power source units from their system and have a “truly 100% linear, audiophile-dedicated power source”.

JCAT claims that the Optimo S ATX is the only 100% linear computer-audio dedicated power supply on the market.

TRANSFORMERS

JCAT use custom-designed transformers made exclusively for the JCAT Optimo S ATX. The magnetically and electrically shielded transformers operate with reduced induction in an entirely linear core magnetization characteristic. They are mechanically decoupled from the device housing with high-quality vibration isolators that are used in medical devices.

JCAT OPTIMO S ATX CAPACITORS

Eleven high-end low impedance, 105°C, capacitors per rail (of a total 110mF (110.000 uF) ensure the performance of the JCAT Optimo S ATX.

COMPATIBILITY

The JCAT Optimo S ATX meets rigorous ATX 2.2 norms, so it can be used with any computer motherboard equipped with an ATX connector. There are audiophile-quality cables included for powering the PC motherboard, CPU, drives, and expansion cards (e.g., JCAT USB & NET Cards).
