    I'd like to know wich adapter should I choose; I only use boss pedals. I've read in reviews that the psa-120s doesn't last and I don't really know anything about the psa-120t. So wich should I choose?

    The "S" is their new switch-mode supply, I'd be surprised if it's been out long enough to have reliable reviews. The "T" is their traditional transformer supply, people have been using them for decades. Personally I have had mixed results with switch-mode supplies, but they work great for many people.

    Bumping this zombie thread to see if there have been any more current (ha! no pun intended) experiences with the PSA-120S, especially in applications where it would replace a PSA-120T.

    The PSA-120T from my PSM-5 just died, and while I'm tempted to use this opportunity to get a more advanced, comprehensive loop bypass switcher, I wouldn't mind having a fully functional PSM-5 in the interim.

    Anyone successfully used the newer PSA-120S with ~10-20 year old BOSS pedals?

    Thanks.

    I've had two for a few years, they work great with old Boss pedals.
    I rehoused one into a Hammond box because the cable frayed at the base of the wall wart, which happens to any power supply.
