There is a new interesting unit out there: Ecoflow Delta and it has a like brother Ecoflow R600. Somebody might try them for audio...


Romy, I have a Delta here, but do not use it for audio.  Would be easy enough to plug one DSET into it to give it a go though...see what happens.

Ecoflow Delta
Dragged the Delta inside today and plugged a single DSET into it.  Startup went ok but I was a little worried when the second stage caps started filling and Delta momentarily spiked at over 2kW draw.  Once the amp was fully started draw settled at 330w and the display indicated about 3 hours of power for the amplifier.  
Major drawback of these battery banks is the fan noise from the inverter producing the AC...too loud for a listening room.  Other than that it all worked for a few hours until the batteries ran out of puff.  Sound was ok, not saying any better or worse, I was otherwise occupied.  It should be put in another room if someone decides to go this way, and if you have a system that needs less juice to operate.  May be ok for source components, but I have not tried.

PurePower update?
Since my PP unit was never returned from service by Purepower 9 years ago and I was promised Gold+ unit - they seem to have disappeared again.
Any update what is going on with Damian or Richard at Purepower? Their record of non-responsiveness seems to be exceptional.
Regards, Kishore

I would be interested too...
...in learning what is the reliability of the current production PurePower units. I'm considering investing in PP+1500 to power:

- A clone of Romy's phono (choke input filters)
- Headphone amp (180W)
- CD
- DAC (choke input)
- Sansui TU-X1



Cheers,

The PP in 2020
Kishore, I do not really know what is going on with them. Last time I dealt with them it 2 year back. The display on one of my units went down and I reputed to them. They told me that is was faulty and sent me a replacement. I was not able to replace it and just plugged the new Display board siting outside of the unit. Other than this my 3000+ unit works flawlessly and I never removed it from my system over the years. I have another 2000 unit that was perfect, I do not use it and keep as a backup, in case my main unit goes doe and I am not sure if I will be able to get my 3000+ fixed and to sound in the way how it sound now. The battery that 2000 unit are gone but I have no motivations to replace them. 
 
From what you said and from what I head from a few other people who emailed me directly the way how PP conducts customer support was not changed. The way how I see it: it is what it is and it is fine. The reputation they make with the support they provide has a direct correlation with amount of units they sell. They clearly do not want to seal mode then they do and no one should blame then for it. In my view they have a spectacular product if it was in the hands of some people with more mature marketing awareness (or perhaps more money) then a PP unit would be sitting in each listening room. I am not kidding.  BTW, I gave in past to PP some folks who could pushed zillions of them to audio community but PP treated them with the same ridicules promise and misled expectations. My guys just did not wanted to be invalid in any relationship with PP anymore. I intentionally did not want to be involved in the relationship between PP and my guys and I wanted the chips to fall where they might.  They did, unfortunately. 
  
I do not know what objectives behind PP. They are a family and they might keep the entire PP project on the side to pay mortgages or to entertain children unit they go a better jobs. I did not see in them these draconian corporate objectives: we want more. They are quite laid back folks and perhaps that slow dripping operation through the pain of customers is what they wiling to have. Can somebody to blame them? I do not think so. The sad part is that they unknowingly (or better to say accidently) have a spectacular product. 
  
Anyhow, regarding the updates. I was told that they have a few minor but I am not sending my good unit to them. They introduced a rare-earth batter pack, which might be good or now. For sure it will give more buttery time, something that I do not care and for sure it will change the sound of the unit and most likely they changed not only the battery but the PS for charging. I do not have stamina now to go for evaluation of that neodymium buttery pack and it is hard to estimate if it make any difference in positive direction.

All understandable, but
...the problem starts outside North America - eventual shipping a faulty unit there and back, paying each time the cargo (20-40kg), customs, taxes, can be quite costly.

Romy, reading the beginning of the thread there seemed to be a problem with choke input PS. Is that solved? Does your EAR834 version works off PP?



Cheers,
