I have several Harley Benton Powerplant Jr units and have found them to be quiet and reliable. Each output only provides 120 mA though so you would maybe need a couple of them. In fact, the new Harley Benton ISO-2 would probably be a better choice and it's only €68.

Some of you are just posting "here's what I have get that". While I'm pleased that you have a power supply that you enjoy, my opening post has already outlined which ones are available to me.

I don't know your precise circumstances but thought that Thomann would be a good option for someone in Norway. If you're genuinely restricted to the models listed in your initial post I think I would go for the Decibel 11 Hot Stone SMD or the T-Rex FuelTank Chameleon. The Mooer Macro Power might be good too, as at least some of the outputs seem to be isolated.

Agreed. Sorry I misread the "only have these available" bit and thought you were just suggesting things you'd found.

Apologies on my phrasing in the initial post. Rereading it, it does indeed seem like a "here are some suggestions" list.

RE Thomann: PPD price of > 350 NOK means sales tax, customs, postal service fees, &c. It's just not worth it.

penelope, I for some reason forgot to include the Carl Martin Pro Power in my list. It is substantially (though not extremely) cheaper than the Decibel. Specs &c. here: https://carlmartin.com/pro_power/ -- thoughts? That's what I'm leaning towards at the moment. The FuelTank Chameleon is cheaper still, but has fewer outputs.

I think with your pedals the Chameleon would be plenty but if you're looking for running fewer daisy chains or considering expanding, the Carl Martin would be great.

I think the main feature that distinguishes the Decibel from the other options is that it has a toroidal transformer and that supposedly reduces the chance of interference. I don't think it would be worth paying much extra for that though.

Is it the Pro Power 1 or Pro Power 2 that is available locally? I think I would choose that over the Chameleon (unless there's a significant price difference). However, the Carl Martin units seem to be a bit bigger than the Decibel and the Chameleon, which might be an issue if you want to fit your supply under a Pedaltrain or something.

I guess I'm not convinced that paying extra for that feature, and fewer isolated outputs, isn't all that convincing. But I appreciate the info.

It's the Pro Power 1. The prices are kind of evenly spaced. The Pro Power 1 is one step above the Chameleon, and the Decibel is another (tiny bit bigger) step above that again.

I didn't even consider the sizes.

Decibel: 14.8 x 8.7 x 4.4
Pro Power: 15.2 x 8.6 x 4. 5
Chameleon: 16.0 x 8.0 x 3.8

I probably should take that into consideration, even if I'm not planning to get a pedal board anytime soon. Good point.
