in the spirit of full disclosure, i have been doing my due dilligence on power supplies, and this question was to make my decision between the pedal power 2+ and the dunlop-CAE MC-430 power system.
these being the two clear leaders out of the entire spectrum of pedal power supplies after much research (seriously, spreadsheet and everything....i have a lot of time on the PC at work
), i had to decide which fit my needs best. i run a lot of pedals, so the abundance of outputs on the CAE system appealed to me immediately. however, to fit mxr/dunlop/CAE's product line, a disproportionate ammount of the outs are 18V. well, whats the point of having all those outs if i can only use half of them?
funny thing is, even before making my decision, i graphed out all of the special cables i would have to order for the PP2+ to work and the CAE, and they totalled out at exactly the same. go figure.
so today i made my decision, which was my first instinct to begin with. tonight, i am going to purchase a voodoo labs pedal power 2 plus. all of the supplies i looked at claimed to be the most versatile, blah blah. the pp2+ actually is. so, great work VL!!!
