The power unit for the V6 is NOT just some "Wall Wart" or "Adapter". It is actually a linear, regulated 12V Power Supply. I just purchased an Elpac WM060-1950-760 12V linear regulated 12V PSU from Allied. The PSU started at $32, and the total purchase with handling and shipping charges came to $42. Another way to get a decent 12V power supply is by using a battery pack (9 AA NiMH in series varies between 10.5 - 12V). Good quality batteries which will actually keep charging years from now go about $10 for 4 (or $20-ish for 9), PLUS a charger - the least expensive one I've found that is actually convenient to use is about $23. PLUS, you've got to buy the battery holders and build the battery pack. (Battery Pack & Charger: $50-ish).
Can a 12V "Wall Wart" be had somewhere for less than $18? Probably, but the noise and internal-resistance-induced voltage variations about the target voltage (ripple) will be an impediment to the sound that the amp can produce.
On every single Go-Vibe thread, there are always "sticker shock" posts about the cost of a decent quality linear, regulated PSU (as though it were just a power adapter to run something not needing good quality power). But, between the cost of a decent unit itself PLUS handling charges on small orders PLUS shipping, attempts to come up with units less expensive than Norm suggests or supplies end up NOT being less expensive by much (if at all) AND delivering less quality power.
Anyone who can come up with a decent quality (low-enough-for-audio noise and ripple) PSU with low cost handling, shipping charges (and a order time of less than a few months and no requirement of a minimum order of 50 units, etc.) would be doing the audio community a great service. I've seen the wish expressed many times. I've yet to see the "great find" that fulfills it. Whoever makes this find will be remembered and appreciated by many, including me.
