Hatsubai's review"Noisy"

Dunlop DC10 DC-BRICK
People have been looking for alternatives to the Voodoo Lab power supply for quite awhile. However, none of them have really come close to what Voodoo offers at their price point. Dunlop decided to try their hand at it, but I really think they dropped the ball on this thing. The DC Brick is meant to power your pedals, and it does exactly that. However, it has one major flaw, and that’s that each of the sources are not isolated. In the Voodoo Lab version, all of the inputs are isolated, so you get clean and pure power. With this one, it can induce a lot of noisy. In fact, it’s nothing but a glorified One-Spot, to be honest.

The pedal itself is nice and compact, so there’s no real issues when it comes to how much space it takes up. It also comes with all of the cables you need, so no issues there. It powers up the pedals fine, just like other power management systems out there, and it’s cheap. Those are about the only good things you can say about this thing. If you’re in the market for a solid power supply, just get the Voodoo Lab model. You’ll be much happier, it’ll be quieter, and it can do more. I find that the Voodoo one is much more versatile. If you ever get offered one of these, politely decline. If you can’t afford the Voodoo one, just get a One-Spot and start daisy chaining until you can afford to buy the Voodoo one. If you got a lot of money and space, you can look into the new CAE power supply. That’s an amazing one, but it costs quite a bit of money. Skrydstrup can also build you a real solid one, but that’s only for those guys over in Europe, as his prices are a bit out of hand for those of us here in North America.

The Dunlop DC brick is great for a simple board or as a secondary supply when your main supply runs out of juice. It provides seven 9 volt outputs and three 18 volt outputs with enough current to run standard stomp boxes. They include a variety of cables that work with standard boss style jacks as well as cables for 1/8" inputs (dod) and a cable that can be hooked to a battery snap in case you have an old pedal with no power jack on it. All the cables except the 1/8" are right angle which is great for keeping your board tidy. The newer models also use an offset wall wart that saves a little space over the traditional style.The main thing you must consider is that the Dunlop is only filtered and does not have isolated power outputs. What that means is that it's basically a boxed up daisy chain with a separate section for the 18 volt outputs. Daisy chaining is exactly what it sounds like; one long chain of plugs all hooked to one output. This allows the pedals grounds to be connected to each other and that can lead to ground loops and other problems that add noise to your signal.If you have any pedals that do not like being daisy chained, like old fuzz boxes, or if you use an effects loop you are better off getting something with isolated outs like the voodoo labs pedal power.

I used the brick for a few years and kept my effects loop pedals on their own dedicated power supplies. This worked for the most part but was not the quietest or cleanest setup. If you run just a few pedals in front of your amp and need some 18 volt outputs give the Brick a shot.

Dunlop DC10 DC-BRICK
The MXR DC Brick DCB10 is a box for powering up your pedals. As you can probably tell, it is designed for those who have a lot of pedals that they need powered up at once. It can power up to ten pedals at once - 7 nine volt pedals, and three 18 volt pedals. It comes with an 18 volt power supply that is the only thing you will need to plug into the wall. It isn't rack mountable in anyway as it is in the form of a box.

Using the MXR DC Brick DCB10 is incredibly simple. Users shouldn't have a problem hooking up their pedals to this, as it is just about as self explanatory as it gets. Simply plug your pedals into the DCB10, according to the proper voltage and you're good to go. A manual isn't necessary to set this up at all...

The MXR DC Brick DCB10 doesn't actually make any sound of its own, which is a very good thing when it comes to power supplies like this as you definitely don't want it to add any of its own noise! I have found the unit to be quite clean and as long as you have hooked up your pedals to the proper voltage and all that, you should be fine in terms of any extraneous noise.

My only complaint about the MXR DC Brick DCB10 is the price. While it isn't exorbitantly expensive, when compared to some of the other multi-pedal power supplies like those made by Boss and Visual Sound, this does seem a bit costly. However, it does have the ability to power up more pedals than those do, but I wouldn't say that it is worth the price difference. The other feature you get with the DCB10 over the other ones is that it has the built in ability to power pedals of different voltages. If you need a device to power up your pedal board, absolutely consider the MXR DC Brick DCB10, but don't forget to also check out the Visual Sound One Spot and daisy chain, as well as the Boss daisy chain.

Dunlop DC10 DC-BRICK
No opinion on this diet but for those who do not want to crack their savings plan in a power read on.
After complete information on the Big John Ciok, Power over Voodoo Vibe, the full tank T-Rex, DC brick and other Dunlop Power Brick Artec, I bought a Harley Benton powerplant (Thomann mark).
I just got it and judge for yourself:
-8 9v outputs
-2 Outputs 12V DC 1AC + 1
-A Light switch
-A Blue LED indicator to say that it works
-A Removable plug type PC industry with earth
-And ... All connection cables !!!!
All for 39 euros Thomann !!!
I plugged in and everything is nickel, no background noise, blast or otherwise.
Well, as we said in ERAM, it would be crazy to spend more !!!
39 euros is hardly more than a UNIQUE Power Ibanez or Dunlop !!!
For life, is to wait, I can not say anything for now but frankly j'vois when the price of Voodoo, I tell myself that some do not care their pockets!
