I would like to get any feedback from people who have compared the following power supply's

CIA VDC•SB
Paul Hynes SR1-5
Bolder Ultimate

I am mainly looking for feedback for people who have compared all 3 or at least 2 out of the 3. From my reading I am leaning towards the SR1-5 but that is not based on listening. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

I can't give you a comparative answer, but I own the CIA. Compared to the (crap) stock PS, the sound is greatly improved. Much fuller sound.

Any experience from anyone with the Paul Hynes PS? Gotta believe someone has done a comparison. Thanks.

Taking into consideration that the power supplies you mentioned actually cost more than a Squeezebox, you might have a hard time getting unbiased opinions. If I just dropped that kind of cash on a replacement power supply, I think I might "hear" a difference too!
