requires a sharp analytical mind? Sure, there may be some compromises on parts cost, in order to meet a price point for marketing the item. And if you want to "upgrade" the parts quality, go for it.
You want to cast me in the anti-tweaker role. I won't play that part. I wrote elsewhere that a completely discrete outboard supply would be the no-holds-barred way to go, if one is so inclined. For those who are put off by such notions, because they lack skill, knowledge, or experience, the product probably has been well thought out to begin with, if the company building it is reputable, like Schiit or iFi.
Yo Lew, my sharp analytical mind doesn't understand the relevance of your question. I think swapping in better sounding parts makes things sound better. "The only thing he did was change the transformer. We went from a 100mA transformer to a 10A transformer"exactly the same voltage, the circuit was drawing no more current"and the DIFFERENCE was just STAGGERING. To this day it's one of the biggest differences I've ever heard." I kinda like this quote from the Paul McGowan link posted by 1973shovel. Pure hyperbolicness I guess. Why even bother trying to make one's system sound just a tini wini bit better? T456

.. in fact it's possible to completely screw up a power supply by fitting expensive high-performance components, in much the same way you can mess up the handling of a car by fitting expensive alloy wheels and low profile tires.
