The Walrus Audio Aetos is an 8-output, isolated power supply, utilizing an internal custom-wound toroidal transformer to provide the highest noise filtering and cleanest power, giving artists the purest sound in their signal chain. The Aetos is housed in a solid die cast aluminum enclosure and is 4.7”long x 3.7” wide x 1.2” height and will fit under most standard pedal boards including the PT-2 from Pedaltrain. It has 8 total, 9vdc outputs: 6 outputs are 100mA and 2 outputs are high current outputs (250mA). The 250mA outputs are for higher current drawing pedals like Line 6 – 4 series modelers, the Boss Twin Series Pedals and many digital modulation pedals on the market. It comes with a detachable 120V AC Power cord and also has a 120VAC complimentary power output which are UL approved. This unit comes with 8 individual – 2.1mm barrel black power cables and 2 black-to-red (Line 6) power cables.
The case is a textured steel blue color and boasts the sketch of the Aetos (Eagle) in a muted sky blue color.
Clean Isolated Power
The Aetos is designed around a custom-wound toroidal transformer, providing isolation to each of the 8 regulated output channels. The alternatives to multi-output isolated power supplies are individual wall-warts and daisy chains. Wall-warts, which do offer isolation, often lack filtering that is necessary for audio applications and they take up an enormous amount of space. The daisy chain power supplies, while being cheap in price, often have grounding issues as a result of having multiple pedals pulling different currents from the power source creating ground loops and magnetic field issues. The noise is increasingly evident if you are powering higher current modulation effects or more than a few pedals. The advantages of isolated power supplies are well known but to put it simply – having each pedal in your chain have its own isolated power channels prevents leakage of ground loops or the magnetic field of one pedal from going onto the channel of another. If you’ve ever experienced hum or buzzing coming from your chain, it’s most likely these ground looping issues. Isolated power – also known as ‘Clean Power’ – is the best choice for players serious about their sound!
