RE: Ok

Is that necessarily better?
: It's not about being better. My point is you can't treat 2A@7V from 100VA transformer being more over kill than 6.4A@7V from 45VA transformer. Being over kill or not isn't about current output but transformer size.

I can also order 45VA transformer with 38VA for primary output and 7VA for secondary output. That'll have 3A@12V and 1A@7V. Is that still kill? That's my point of the first discussion.

Emulate whoever you choose!
: I didn't emulate anyone for building Nikola. As I said, all ultra highend digital sources in market will use either switching PSU or linear PSU with toroidal transformer. I haven't seen any $30k equipment or higher using any other transformer but toroidal at that price. Not even once.

Also, Nikola is designed with only one voltage as specialized product. HDPlex is designed with 5-19V and multiple outputs as multi-purposes product.
