4ms ROW Power 30Wswitching (see note)12V@1.5A / -12V@.75A / 5V@.5ASome images show an AC external lump for this solution, implying an external and internal linear solution. The user manual specifies a DC external lump, implying a switching solution (needed to derive -12V from +12V). Dealer photos show a DC wall wart, so presumed switching type.Compact and relatively good current rating. Comes as a small euro module.
Needs an external 15-20V power brick, so it’s not wired to AC directly

Synthrotek Deluxe Powerswitching12V @ 2.0A | -12V @ 1.5A | 5V @ 1.5AYou can choose between the standard and the more expensive (but better) Mean Well power brick. Took measurements from Deluxe Power module powering a Synthrotek Noise Filtering Distribution Board. Measured 103 mV peak to peak and 3.42 mV RMS noise on +12 VDC for lightly loaded system. -12V was worse, measuring 89.6 mV and 8.59 mV RMS noise. Measured with 1:1 probes and 20 MHz scope BW limit. Changing the location of the measurements on the power distribution board had little effect, it had this noise level everywhere.Comes in various configuarations, seems like the upgraded version of the older 5A PSU.$139 (without brick)http://store.synthrotek.com/Deluxe-Power-Module_c_72.html

Tip Top Audio Zeus Studio Busboardhybrid, switching input, linear output12V @ 1.3A, -12V @ 800 mA, 5V @ 300 mAOutput regulation spec of +/-12V: +/-0.05% Linear discrete design. +5V not specified, may be switching. Shielded switcher, Tiptop Audio DC800 encapsulated switcher. Three 3 terminal linear regulators seen on the board. Believe that the +12V is from a linear regulator from the +15VDC input, and the onboard switcher provides -15VDC to linear regulator for -12 VDC, and also +5VDC from the switcher. Possibly the switcher provides an intermediate voltage (~+8VDC) to linear regulate down to +5VDC.Large power supply and distribution board, 14 20 pin unshrouded headers, 2 Analogue Solutions DIP style sockets.$217.00 with Zeus Access power control panelhttp://www.tiptopaudio.com/zeussb.php

Tip Top µZeus switching12V, -12V, 5V – 2000mA total | -12V can be either 0.4A or 0.5A depending on the jumper position The switching regulator needs to have a minimum load of 100mA (out of 500mA) at any given time. There is a jumper do disable this, if you have more than 4 modules.
very small and compact. delivers 5V, comes in form as a small module.
needs an external 15V power brick, so it’s not wired to AC directly. I’ve heard several complaints about this PSU from people, things ranging from noise to burned modules. I’m not sure if it’s the PSU or the user not using it properly, but I thought I’d mention it.

TRACOPOWER – TXL 035-1212D switching12V: 3A, -12V: 1.5AI had a bunch of problems with this one, so I can't really recommend it. Even with a load higher than 300mA all digital modules would glitch out from time to time.No 5V, compact and apparently decent quality, plugs directly to the mains. Has an annoying minimum required load for regulation of 300mA and ripple and noise is slightly higher than the Meanwell. 44,80€http://www.tracopower.com/fileadmin/medien/dokumente/pdf/datasheets/txl.pdf

Trogotronic m1510A – 20A (all channels combined)No info on how much current you get for each voltage. The system seems to need two bricks (one for +/-12V and one for +5V).
