Marantz DPS-1

Rarest of all Music Link series, the DPS-1 is an external "digital power supply" for the DAC-1 / DMA-1 (aka SC-22 and MA-22).
It was built by Yoshida Denpa on Marantz specs' and was a Japan-only item.

It provides four terminals for low-power and four others for high-power components ; enough to hook four DMA-1, one DAC-1, one PH-1 and one CD-23 (although the latter didn't exist when the DPS-1 was launched and the latter didn't exist anymore when the 23 was...) with one low-power terminal left for... a sadly never developed Music Link tuner ?

The AC input is cleaned up with early versions of the CCNE, Marantz' AC "noise killer" circuit.

The DPS-1 seems to have sold very poorly and it was very quickly dropped from the catalogs...

A real DPS-1 here (with a red "on line" light).
