    I'm curious to know which is more reliable and which is more capable of producing better, quieter power.

    I'm looking to buy a power supply in the next few days! I just want to make sure I have something that's great quality and will last.

    tele> keeley katana> TU3> comp nova> TS9> Rat> Corona> Trelicopter> soundblox 2 Reverb> Mustang IV

    Any opinions would be really appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Biggest benefit to the pedal power is the isolated inputs. The dc brink doesn't have this. It's what you pay the extra coin for in the PP.

    From the Manual http://www.voodoolab.com/manuals/pedal_power_2plus_manual.pdf

    SAG Output
    Outputs 7 and 8 permit you to adjust or SAG the voltage from
    9V down to about 4V. To enable this feature you must set the
    corresponding switch away from NORMAL. This allows you to
    simulate worn batteries. This is mostly useful for transistor-based
    fuzz and distortion circuits, as modern opamp designs are minimally
    affected by variations in supply voltage. It is not recommended
    for digital pedals.

    Yes, if you have the switches on the back all set to normal they just all act as 9V regulated. Your Source Audio needs to go in either output 5 or 6 but the rest can go in any.
