I did some testing with a few psu units. Here they are ranked according to quietness.

1. Voodoo Lab ISO5/4x4 - no noise whatsoever.
2. Godlyke Powerall and Vitoos DC8 - minimal noise
3. Vitoos Power adapter - minimal noise but more than godlyke and dc8
4. Generic 9V adapter - very very noisy compared to Vitoos and Godlyke.

You really have to invest in a good power supply unit. Vitoos is tough to beat for its price and features.

These are noiseless
- BBE supa charger
- Voodoo Labs 4x4

I also have 2 1spot units. 1 is noiseless while the other has some noise especially with pedals that require high current.




doh!!!

Power supply is one thing you shouldn't skimp on for obvious reason. Get something that is tried and tested from Voodoo Lab, BBE, Cioks, or T-Rex.

i had a voodoo lab pedal plus 2 before,

binenta ko din, at naisip ko that time na bka meron sa pinas na mas murang power supply at kayang i-provide yung need ng pedals ko,

from there, bumili ako ng Cabalen PSU e dumating sakin e 220v, nahirapan ako kaya pnadala ko ulit sa pinas. then Kenzu nman, so far ngamit ko yung
Kenzu with the locally made pedals din na sinubukan ko. (i was at the brink of quitting being a guitarist non) kaya nagdecide ako ng mga affordable pedals
from philippines. nung umabot ako sa point na, ginanahan ulit ako mag gitara and started GASsing again. nagkaroon naman ako ng takot na using a
locally made na PSU (don't get me wrong, hindi sa dinedegrade ko yung pnasadya ko) e bka sa future it could harm my pedals, nung nag start na ko mkarinig
ng kakaibang ingay, so ayun nag decide na ko na mag voodoo lab ulit. ayaw ko magsisi na later on. kaya ayun 2 months before bumili ako let ng voodoo lab.
and i'll keep it na. kasi mas ok na yung subok na at kilala tlga. hehe

Tama ka dito sir. Nakgamit nako ng kenzu psu at ang tagal bago ko nareceived ung PSU na pinagawa ko..Frankly,i wasnt satisfied sa mga materials na ginamit.(Well i guess for a 2k price thats what i got). A week after binenta ko din nakakatakot eh. Binenta ko nalang 900p para makabuy ng iba. Then i bought Cabalen PSU. I checked ung laman sa loob and not so good. So far ito pa din ang gamit ko no choice. Honestly may hiss akong nadidinig at parang may priniprito...laging umaangal sakin ung PA pag nasa out gig ako...buti nlng kumpadre ko. Now ipon nalang ako ng mas reliable na PSU. Experience ko lang naman po ito sa nabili ko at share ko lang. I never want po na makasira ng reputation ng mga local sellers natin. Anyway instead po na negatibo ang reaction, pede pa naman po nating iimprove ang mga gawang pinoy.

Cheers!

Haven't tried the Mooer. Between OneSpot and Vitoos, I'd go OneSpot.

Pero instead of the OneSpot, I'd go for the Godlyke Powerall. It's quieter than the 1Spot and Vitoos.

Ralph, naka try na ako ng Mooer, Vitoos, Godlyke, and Visual Sound na daisy chain. Believe it or not, they have their differences. Yung Mooer, as I remember, iba ever so slightly yung sukat ng mismong barrel ng plug. Kasya naman sya sa usual pedals, pero compared sa VS, Godlyke, Vitoos... parang mas tama ang sukat nung iba. Same with the Mooer patch cables, yung sukat nila ay parang pang Mooer and not much for other pedals. :p

With regards to Vitoos naman, may instance na parang nahirapan magkasya yung plug nya sa wah pedal ko. Ok yung size ng barrel, pero yung mismong shape and size nung angled housing niya got in the way dun sa butas ng wah pedal ko.

Eventually, I settled with Godlyke and VS na daisy chain (I still have both), kasi mas friendly over a variety of pedals yung shape and size nila.

As for noise issues and whatnot, I can hardly tell if there's any difference.

try mo yung strymon Ojai. cheaper than a VoodooLabs 4x4, small footprint and can provide 5 isolated 9v, 500mA output. pero last time i heard may reliability issues yung Ojai.
doh!!!
