Our interest in the Ferrum Hypsos was due to a tip-off from customer who had run into it elsewhere.
Why the Hypsos?
Ferrum Hypsos uses a hybrid power system, a combination of linear and switching designs, to get the advantages from each technique, which is low-ripple and low-noise as well as a fast transient response and high efficiency. It offers a selection of unique features and even accounts for future software improvements.
Simple and Stylish
Housed in a minimalistic sleek black unit with hardly any hardware user controls, only a display screen and one knob; the device is mainly software controlled and is as impressive in its design as in its performance.
The Hypsos is compatible with a vast array of equipment, such as the Apple Remote, and by using pre-configured settings from the list of supported devices or setting parameters manually you can get your system up and running in no time. The HYPSOS is as universal a device as it gets. View Ferrum’s list of compatible models
The Hypsos allows for full customisation of your sound. SST (Sweet Spot Tuning) allows you to fine-tune the output voltage for the best sound; it can even be adjusted on the fly to provide comparison testing. It also has a settings lock to prevent accidental change of the parameters.
Ferrum Audio Hypsos has a cable design called 4T Sensing Design (4TSD), which comprises of two wires delivering the power and two wires providing feedback to ensure a 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.
The Hypsos comes with two DC power cables, a 5.5 x 2.5mm and a 5.5 x 2.1mm DC cord, which connects to most commonly used DC inlets.
