A Look Inside The Nexus RX-8500
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

We decided to disassemble this power supply to see what it looks like inside, how it is designed, and what components are used. Please read our Anatomy of Switching Power Supplies tutorial to understand how a power supply works and to compare this power supply to others.

This page will be an overview, and then in the following pages we will discuss in detail the quality and ratings of the components used. The first thing we notice here is that this power supply uses two transformers. Later we will see how they are connected.
