I just bought an Exasound E20 and i'm very happy with it, it sound great in my setup, but I want to change the 12v power supply with a better one.
I can't build it by myself, so what power supply do you advise for me?
It's the same version that I own.
I've already seen the Teddy Pardo's power supply, but I'm searching something more affordable.
I would also be interested in specific comments on the improvements over the stock wall ps unit.

I've bought the Teddy
There is some improvements but not so noticeable .
There are other solution that cost less with the same results like the Zetagi FT146
I feel Teddy Pardo is a great investment for e20, but this is only part of the equation..
I have a very resolving system and i knew right away TP made a very positive improvement on e20 in terms of soundstage depth and bass weight, but I didn't stop there.
This incremental improvement becomes much more apparent and audible as you invest additional $$ to clean out AC line noises.
Personally I am in very old building with a terrible power grid, so I now have 6 PS Audio Noise Harvesters, couple of very high quality power cords attached to the Synergistic Research
Tesla Plex SE AC receptacle -> Blue Circle Audio PLC Thingee -> Pangea AC-14XL -> Teddy Pardo -> e20.
As well, battery powered ifi iusb feeding clean usb power to the e20 made it sing like no other DAC I've ever tried (sans Chord Hugo).
I also tried many different interconnects from my e20 to monoblocks and settled in with the amazing High Fidelity CT-1E ( I used to own CT-1U - $4900 ICs, but reluctantly sold them due to unforeseen financial reasons)
