While I generally try to take audiophile tweaks with a grain of salt, I do find it pretty easy to buy in to the argument behind good power supplies. As such, my curiosity is always peaked when I see a product to replace the wall-wart of the SBT.
Most of the ones I have seen have been rather piecemeal affairswith the stock unit made for other purposes, and other voltagesbut then modified to work with the Squeezebox units; and that makes them pricey to boot. So I have to say I am VERY intrigued by the (new?) CI VDC-SB. One, CI (Channel Island) is a name I know and trust, two it appears the unit was made specifically for the Squeezebox (I assume, based on the SB in the model name); and three, at $259, it's about half to a third or the price of some other units I have seen. I mean seriously, what kind of nonsense is it to spend 3 times the price of the SBT transport, on an external PSU.
Soanyone had a chance to check it out yet? Let me get one before we all make a run on them!
