    Hi there,
    One simple question:
    Has the type of power supply (toroidal or swith mode) an influence on the sound?

    I would imagine that if designed properly, the power supply wouldn't affect the amp's ability to accurately reproduce the signal fed into it.

    I have both (mackie 1400i and a Peavey DPC 1000) and honestly can't hear a lot of difference between them. The noise floor may be a bit higher on the peavey, but nothing you would worry about live.
