12v power supplies

I'm looking for good quality 12v power supplies to use with a class D amp. I need a barrel type connector (5.5mm outer, 2.1mm inner). The power supply that came with the amp is mediocre, it works fine with bluetooth, but introduces some noise at higher volumes when using the analog input.

I know iFi makes a very good power supply and I'm going to get one of those for another application, but it's entirely too expensive to use with a low-power amp - I just need something that is "good", not crazy audiophile grade.

Are you SURE that you need 12-VDC....most Class-D Mini-Amps are using 19-VDC....and some at 24-VDC Max Limit for the "chip" found inside:

You should tell us which Class-D Mini-Amp you want to use....if PS is not included with the order, Amazon listing should at least provide a PS recommendation....
