DigiTech has introduced the HardWire V-10 Power Block 10-Pedal Isolated Power Supply, a pedalboard power supply with 10 fully isolated outputs that deliver dependable, noise-free power for effects pedals.
The HardWire V-10 Power Block’s isolated, high-current outputs and a shielded low-stray-field toroidal transformer eliminate hum and noise that can be caused by ground loops and interference.
Four 9-volt outputs are provided, along with two pairs of 9V/12V merge-able outputs for power-hungry digital pedals, and two outputs with variable voltage from 5 to 12 volts.
The HardWire V-10 Power Block is built road-tough with a heavy-grade aircraft aluminum chassis that allows for maximum heat dissipation.
The V-10 measures 7.5 x 3.5 x 2.2 inches, and mounts perfectly under Pedaltrain pedalboards. It utilizes standard 2.1 x 5.5mm barrel jack connectors and delivers 1200mA total DC current.
The V-10’s front-panel LEDs provide ready indication of output jack status. It is supplied with 17 DC power cables from 18 to 30 inches, including 2.1mm and 2.5mm barrel plugs with positive (+) and negative (-) centers, 3.5mm phone plugs and 9V battery clip.
“A guitarist’s pedalboard is only as good as its power supply,” says Scott Klimt, marketing manager for DigiTech. “We designed the V-10 Power Block to be the best power supply on the market and give musicians the best sound and performance from all of their effects pedals, night after night.”
The DigiTech HardWire V-10 Power Block carries a six-year warranty and is available in October 2012 with a suggested retail price of $299.95.
