I'm making music server with components:
AUDIOPHONICS PI-SPC II Power Management module
ALLO KALI Reclocker
AUDIOPHONICS DAC I-Sabre ES9038Q2M KALI EDITION
for the building process power supply regulated SMPS
I feed power management module with 5.8V max from SMPS on 5V rail, set voltage on power management 5.2V connected only to reclocker. System is stable and power module is cold. When I connect to 12 V rail and adjust voltage to 10.3V power module is hot even with sink 7x8 cm. For that reason I decide to leave it on 5V rail.
By specification power module should work in range 7-12V!
Is it OK to leave it on 5.8 V or it must be min. 7V??? Sorry maybe it is stupid question but I have minor knowledge about electronics.
