I should add, I've been using Uptone JS 2 to power a variety of devices for years, no problems whatsoever. Uptone makes quality products.

I know Alex Crespi at Uptone Audio quite well and have his LPS 1.2 which works just fine. I have had connectivity problems with my Micro-Rendu device which actually Alex helped me sort out when I was at wit's end, in an extremely patient manner, I might add.
If the LPS devices offers no sonic benefit, it could be because your system is not revealing enough to hear the benefit. If you have a problem with his gear, give him a call -- he will answer, and I am sure he will help you sort it out. He is a tip top guy in my book, among the many OEM people in the business that I have the pleasure to interact with, like Don Sachs and Clayton Shaw, two examples that quickly come to my mind. Alex clearly does have supply chain problems just like everybody else.
This thread is nothing to do with Alex. I believe he works hard like the rest of Americans. He cares about his company and wants to maintain a good reputation.
This is about a product that was sold to be paired with the Rendu, but has design issues.
As a network engineer it is amusing that how men believe they hear an improvement in a layer 2 device like the Regen affecting sound quality.
Per Alex the LPS will be dropped.
BTW/ - If you do own a LPS-1.2 and it’s working don’t turn it off and leave it off for a week
or more it may not work when you plug it back in.
Uptone literally sold thousands and thousands of both LPS variants. There is bound to be a small % of failures like with any other product.
The comments you see on the web about failure are sometimes indicative of how many units are out there - rather than if the product itself was failing at a higher than usual rate.
