Tired of low-quality, disturbance sensitive power blocks sold with expensive price? Building up that kind of a system with ground lifted outputs is not so difficult after all. If the isolation is not needed (I’ve never needed), just use one Visual 1-Spot power source with 1700mA of maximum current, and build up a block which just daisy-chains the power to output DC-jacks. Like this:
Fukushima on top. Both have a buffer circuit between input and output jacks. Fukushima is the only buffer in my long guitar effect chain, Tshernobyl belongs to my smaller bass rig. Jacks are placed to match my pedal boards right. Bigger one has a AMZ Super Buffer and 8 daisy-chained, ground lifted DC-outs in different sides of the enclosure with power cutting switch, the smaller one has a Mad Professor Buffer and 4 DC-outs. Neither have a switch for the buffer, as it doesn’t make sense. If you don’t need it, just don’t connect it. Both units’ buffer circuit’s ground wire is connected to the stereo input jack’s 2nd ring, so if the guitar cable is connected, the buffer circuit is offline. Fukushima has another led to indicate if the buffer circuit is engaged or not. Fukushima’s power switch actually works as a output signal muting switch. It cuts the power of the buffer circuit also. Smaller one doesn’t have a separate power switch.
1700mA is grantedly enough to serve any kind of a effect chain, as my guitar effect chain doesn’t even exceed 150mA. 1-spot is very small and has a long power cable. It’s reportedly quite noisy in some circumstances, but I’ve never had such problems. By the way, I couldn’t imagine what would be a better faraday cage than a aluminium enclosure. Tested these in difficult conditions, and both are dead quiet. So this more like replaces your daisy-chain power distribution cable, and gives a change to solder power cables for every single effect pedal with just the right cable length. Neat and durable. Of course, you cannot beat a good solid power sorce with regulated and isolated outputs, but this is worth to try especially if you play mainly at home. This is not replacing real (expensive) power sources, but grantedly is better than a common daisy-chain system.
