I'm heading to my home town, Dayton, OH, next week and thought I'd stop by a fairly large electronics surplus store I remember and try to pick up a decent linear power supply for a META42 I'm building. I was wondering some bored individual might look a few specs over and let me know if any they carry would be decent.
There are some decent looking supplies on the web site. Kinda funny though- click on linear power supplies and the first power supply they show on the top of the page looks like a switching supply, not a linear! I think you will do fine if you just pick a well made power supply with the voltage you want. It is kinda handy to get one with a 5 volt output on it too, which can be used to power a portable CD player, at the same time.

The only power supply I would be interested is that Lambda at the top, which as Budgie says could well be a switcher. I would suspect, though, that if it is a switcher it's a high-quality one. I searched at www.lambdapower.com, and it appears that this is not a current product.
All the others I see on that site are either too low in voltage or are just generally strange beasts not particularly well-suited to headphone amps.
