Electro-Harmonix is entering the power supply market with a new product! But even if the product specifications of the MOP-D10 read really well, the price makes me a bit hesitant, as it is pushing the best part of $270!
Electro-Harmonix MOP-D10 power supply
The abbreviation MOP-D10 probably stands for “ Multi Output Power (Supply)” and “ D C” with “10” outputs. The brick has a sturdy metal housing, and features an analogue circuit based on transformers that should help provide particularly low-noise. The power supply unit is also located inside, so that you only have to connect an IEC connector. You can set the voltage to 115 or 230 V, and can therefore use it worldwide. A very handy option, if your gigs have you travelling all over.
The 10 outputs are divided as follows:
- 4 x 100 mA @ 9 V
- 2 x 250 mA @ 9 V
- 2 x 300 mA @ 9 V
- 2 x 400 mA @ 9 V
The MOP-D10 will work with all of EHX’s own pedals (with some older exceptions), and any others that have 9V with negative centre power requirements. You should also take care that your own, possibly digital, effects pedals should not need more than 400 mA of juice. In addition, all outputs are isolated from one another, and should not cause any hum or noise affecting your effects.
On paper, it is a good quality power supply. But I really do think the pricing is very high for what you’re getting and that maybe it should be closer to $200 or just under. The world of power supplies for effects pedals is already pretty crowded, and with all that competition, this new MOP-D10 may get lost at this price point I feel.
I have no doubt that the quality will be very good and that the unit will do its job. However, I can buy a Harley Benton PowerPlant ISO-10AC Pro* for a lot less and it has very similar specifications to this new EHX model.
RRP – USD 269.50
