-Livingroom-'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" made his taff for the price!"

Harley Benton Power Plant
I use it for 5 years and it still holds up! Therefore robust. I like the price and the ability to have multiple voltages available. I do not like the fact that the case is not an isolated case and that of adding effects in a loop (for example) the buzz can make themselves welcome!

I previously used the special power supplies (one per foot) and garlands (that drop quickly on tour) and short ... we decide to make this investment, and even if I changed recently for Modtone, I do not regret this purchase!

efabric's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Done its job"

Harley Benton Power Plant
I had a breakdown over it a few weeks ago. It was enough to change a small fuse going again nickel. Warning, there is a single internal voltage regulator for all power supplies. Some pedals can alone put your PSU knees, or create noise associated with regulator overstretched. Know before you connect it all your digital multi-effects (noise digital to analog masses connected masses) and big greedy pedals (moogerfooger in my case).
If in doubt, take her little brother just five outputs: The five outputs each have a dedicated controller.

efabric's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Swiss Army Knife"

Harley Benton Power Plant
I am using for nine years.
C'tait my first guitar amp. I pass the lamps since. See anything in sound and dynamics. I bought it on the Internet here based on the videos.
The prampli is not exceptional. It is difficult to keep a clean high volume sound. Crunch sounds are drafts and the distortions very aggressive. As against the DI gave me a good sound for bass. The effects loop includes a speaker simulation (top section) that can not be bypassed, except back into the amp with a jack / RCA cable.
In the end I use as a power amp for my studio monitors (without even a volume knob) on entering the line between cinch (10db).
We must take it as a backup amp in case of failure. It is perfect for a: small and robust. It does not heat.
This amp has all the same few problems. A ground loop doing a background buzz. We can break the ground loop in dvissant Jack sockets (instrument and headphone) in faade. I isolated from mine with fittings attached! Since there is still a "hiss" very low, but nothing to do with the ground loop buzz.
There was also a continued reminder of the problems that I have not had the level of the internal voltage regulator. There is a resistance or diode weld the inside to avoid the. I did a long time ago without any disassemble and I have not had trouble since.

CautionHot's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good and bad"

Harley Benton Power Plant
8 outputs 9v delivering a max of 500mA, a 12V output AC and DC .. On paper it is for € 40 but Fame (and other brands) are as good or better with isolated outputs.

The interior is a transformer, a diode bridge, a capacitor and a voltage regulator. Then a small zener and led to ON. 7809 voltage regulator slammed on my own, I changed without difficulty but be handyman in case of problems. Otherwise it is a relatively quiet PSU so the Q / A is good

RawDeltaBlues's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" This is an 'alim ..."

Harley Benton Power Plant
I feed my Fuzz without output transformer, overkill and ageless, my T-rex that sends better 12V and 9, and my Chinese delay preamp 'my' Mississippi Drum Machine "ridge-house. It sometimes sounds like a mass when it does not have its own electrical outlet or questionable facilities (like garages, cellars bar etc ...) but then it just plug with no earth cable. Apart from that, it works very well, and has a switch for the price of 2 rechargeable ...
It has eight 9V outputs a 12V DC and 12V AC, 500mA developing each (enough to power 99.9 100 pedals market). Every son provided for powering all types of pedals except those intended to work only with batteries, but a trip to the electronics store, once (2 actually) soldering iron and is made .. .
And 10 outputs are isolated ...

NikoLP's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Fine"

Harley Benton Power Plant
I use it for 2 years and I do not have to complain this time.
It feeds 6 pedals now and has provided in the past eight.
I have not encountered any problems of buzz due to the mass, which can be read by location.
Manufacturing point of view, it's solid. It has two 12V outputs if necessary.
I would do this purchase. I would still try other power supply on my config to see the difference, and actually estimate the value for money.
For those who are not convinced, I think it can also act as an emergency power supply in case.
I recommend it for those who have a lot of pedals that are tired of batteries, which do not have the scholarship Rothschild.

voxy33's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Although, complete, if it works"

Harley Benton Power Plant
I had two ...
The first carefree, I sold due to pass on multi effect after a few years of use ...
The recommended ironing on pedals 2nd, he burnt a few uses on stage that made noise in my amp, as if I had a loose connection at the jack ... I suspect the rest of my config but this case ... and yet it is he who messing. It could be easily repaired by someone who knew but if I had it repaired it will not have been worth it ... notice, it was under warranty, I had planned to return to service if so nothing serious, but I had no time to wait for a return ..

Mixed view, therefore, it is, without breath, without buzz, fairly complete ... if the model works. If it is to really live quickly, I saw my reservations émettrai experience. But if I take a power supply like this in the future, I really hesitate to put more money to get the 100% reliable.

oldtant's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent product!"

Harley Benton Power Plant
I use it for almost 2 months, quite intensely.
I also use Eagletone PS 12, for longer, same features, same price, I do not know if you can still find it?
Alim very practical, max 500mA, slightly less than the Eagletone, 750 mA, but enough for me!
Little space for my Pedalboards.
Quality / price quite correct, for 38 €, nothing to say!
I would do the same choice without hesitation if I needed it!

Jumikael's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" For the price is very good"

Harley Benton Power Plant
it's been a good year and a half that I use, I had to bcp alim 'different, and quality (t-rex, 1spot, Cioks).
Excellent value for money: lots of cables (including more than Cioks cables are a real scam), an earth, the power supply cable is detachable (unlike Cioks and t-rex that I 'had had) ...

I feed:
- Amp Pignose
- Two fuzz
- EHX pulsar
- An original SansAmp
- A reverb type malekko spring chicken

No buzz, no worries. Less than the 1spot which is not grounded buzzer was my Pignose amp.
I expect a delay, I'll have to see if the 500 mA of sufficient time, with the amp more.

Negative point: it is heavy and it is ugly: /

Marty62100's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Efficient and cheap! it's .. uh no ..."

Harley Benton Power Plant
I put 8 which is very good.

Very good? :

saw the price: 38th!
Given the outputs: 8 outputs and 2 9v 12v
Given the range of connection that comes with.
(Cables for power supply, extension, tip mini jack (1 per cons), reversing polarity ect ..)
Given the strength of something
Given the service

I feed my effects in front of the amp with. No particular buzz, no problem.

Negative points:

Common mass. The outputs are not isolated from each other. Hence the interest in me having to feed my effects facade. I have not tried but facade + loop: risk of hum ... damage.

500mA max for 9v only. A bit short. Well it works eh!
But let's say that one spot, certainly not the same kind, delivers 1.7 Amp! (The y 'what to do! (Chipotons a little)

Very explicit instructions. Food is still important and when we see that the forum itself, some have come to cut their cables! While inverters are provided!

Too bad this is not specified in it .. It would have avoided tinkering ...
So ultimately, an aesthetic product.
(On the beautiful blue that recall the morning was not .. er .. I'm rambling)

Convenient, cheap, effective. Relatively complete.
(Be careful though if you need food and facade and loop.)
