Rpi PS: Not what I expected

The Teradak U9 linear ps finally arrived. Using the usb out (5v @ 800ma) I was underwhelmed.
I know this is a bit underpowered (the specs call for 2.1 ah I think) but I don't have anything plugged into the Rpi other than the dac. The Rpi does not power the dac and even the 5v signal comes from a battery (via split usb)
Anyway, the Teradak sounds too hifi and a tad mechanical. I prefer the apple iPad 10w power supply.
Who would of thunk it?
I do remember someone doing some research and coming to the conclusion that the Rpi sounded best with a switching ps.
I think I'll try an iFi next.
