Ferrum Hypsos Linear / Switching hybrid power supply

All it takes is a revolution

You only get one chance to make a first impression. With this idea in mind, parent company HEM set out to conquer the world with Ferrum, a new brand, into which they distilled twenty years’ worth of experience of designing and manufacturing audio electronics. The building block of any great audio system is the power supply, so Ferrum first turned to the lowly power supply and made it better.

Ferrum’s First Born

HYPSOS is a hybrid power system which combines the best features of both linear and switching power supplies. HYPSOS offers selectable power output allowing it to power a wide variety of devices, with a simple turn of a knob. This software-based operation is unique to HYPSOS and an industry first! Easy to use, HYPSOS also has an ingenious combination of existing power sensing techniques another distinctive feature. Adding a HYPSOS to any component will reveal previously obscured musical information with unrivalled detail. HYPSOS brings any component up to its utmost potential.

Does your device run on DC? Hypsos can help!

Whether connected to a preamplifier, a D/A converter, an outboard phono preamp, even a turntable or a network switch, HYPSOS will deliver a positive impact to any device. 

High quality DC power cords 

HYPSOS comes with your choice of a high quality DC power cable fitted with a 5.5x2.5mm or a 5.5x2.1mm DC plug. These are the most commonly used DC inlets. Other DC plugs sizes available by special request.

HYPSOS defines a new category of hifi products. This is not just a simple power supply but an audio component in its own right - an equally important device as any other component in the audio system. HYPSOS offers a selection of unique features and even has the ability to receive software updates for future compatibility.

 

Feature Highlights

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 output 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.

Advanced Automation

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.
