I can’t be alone in suffering the large number of “wall warts” that power Ethernet, hdmi, router, TV box, DAC and numerous other switches that work in and around my Hifi & media kit. They take up multiple main power sockets to feed a few milli-amps to feed each device, their quality is invariably poor and almost certainly mean mains noises are getting through to my expensive equipment. The birds nest of thin cheap leads is another source of exasperation when reconnecting devices.
I decided to look for a power supply that had multiple DC output channels of user variable voltage (or 5v, 9v & 12v fixed options) so that I could improve on the situations described above.
I have, so far, spent more than a few hours googling various phrases & have not found a thing that comes close other than some elaborate (& very expensive) work bench power supplies with more knobs, dials & LCD indicators than the average Christmas tree.
So, this is a plea for help, I am sure I am not the only person with this problem, if you are using such a device, or know of one (that doesn’t necessitate a mortgage), I would love to hear from you.
Hi Paul, I recently purchased a Keces P8, which has dual outputs, so I have one output powering a 9V switch and the other powering my 19V Nucleus. You may specify voltage outputs depending on your needs. I purchased the unit from Keces USA (link here) and it was shipped to me rather quickly from Thailand. Price was $599 including shipping. Couldn’t be happier and not a mortgage killer!
Also, if you’re a masochist, you can read all the posts on this thread! Cheers!
Thanks for your suggestions Slim, the 200Watt LPS is out of stock everywhere it seems, but I’m not in a hurry. Wired for sound is in stock and certainly a possibility. I had hoped for 6-8 outputs purely to reduce the “Wart count” but these devices may be the solution
Rather than buy an expensive solution that may not change anything at all. Experiment by unplugging said devices one at a time and see if it improves your sq. This way you can find out if it’s just one or a combination or they are all fine.
They all function “well” but my head is very unhappy about the ever increasing count of wart style PSUs. My initial aim is to find a reasonably priced PSU that will replace a few warts, if sound quality improves at the same time I’ll be delighted
Props for the HDPlex option. I have 2 of them. They do run warm under load but also come with a great selection of cables too. 12V and 19V plus 2 electable outputs. You could always double up outputs to devices with the same voltage and lower current totals than the output needed. Like I ran one output to 2 FMC for an optical LAN connection/isolated run.
Merely giving it a thumbs up … have it ordered or at least notify when available. Larry has a pretty good setup for advising when stock is coming in…popular I guess in as much as it’s good and not unreasonably priced…
