RE: Also, the guys who design these devices are pretty smart

I think his point is a little more subtle, maybe. There has to be a cost/benefit review before undertaking costly improvements, like adding a $100+ power supply to a $50 hock-shop headphone amp. (I don't have a huge junkbox any more that I can pull parts from.)

I have no doubt that an outboard high-current DC power supply would bring a sonic improvement, but the ultimate performance level it can achieve under the best of circumstances is probably not going to be worth the cost.

I think that a **cost-appropriate** level of improvement might be to use nice fat transformer and some nice fat wire, hardwired in, like I was thinking originally.
