You are right that the wall wart is not a kiss of death. However, Meridian could have made the chassis slightly bigger to accommodate a regulated PSU and charge like $300 - $500 more in lieu of $1250 for a dedicate unit. Noise floor would not have been a problem given that they perform a proper shielding. By doing so they will not short change their design and win lot more customers by doing so (Bryston BHA-1 anyone?). Don't you a feel bit curious on how much better a "Prime" will sound with a much better PSU? I hope you don't, b/c it will cost you more than a grand to find out. To think of it, a DIY PSU such as the Sigma 22 maybe able to accomplish the same task for considerably much less money.
