As you can tell, I'm really pleased with this PSU, because it powers two hungry 9VAC devices simultaneously while still giving me seven 9/12VDC and 9VDC SAG connections. Comes with every possible power adapter as well.
This PSU really sovled some problems for me. The 1.3 version number refers to the actual amp output @ 9VAC: 1300mA, or 1.3 amps. This is more than the 1.0 amsp stated in the manual, and enough to run the M13 with the included cable. As it turns out, it's also enough to run a 9VAC Rocktron All Access MIDI controller simultaneously, provided you make a custom cable wth a second, daisy chained 2.5MM center negative connector. And this still leaves all of the available 9/12VDC and 9VDC SAG connections, as well as the courtesy 120VAC connection. That's a lot of value!
Seems well made. Documentation is decent. No complaints so far, but I've only used this for a month or so. Being a little conservative here.
It's one of the very few units that will power a Line6 M13. That it will do that AND power everything else I need is really more than I had hoped I could find in one box, given the AC and DC requirements of my setup. Very satisfied with this PSU.

Well, it halfway worked

Only 3 of the 7 outputs were correctly working. Three were dead and one put out 12v instead of 9 no matter what position the dipswitches were in.

      Does a great job powering my 5 pedals, including a Boss DD20 that needs 200 mV. Fits nicely under my Gator BAK board.

      Works great. Using it to power 5 pedals for now. Only downside is that it comes with only 6 wires to power 6 pedals instead of 7. I dont know why they did that.

            Comments about Modtone MT-POWP 9V AC Power Plant Power Supply:

            An affordable power supply that does what I need it too, just a little disappointed they include 6 normal power cables instead of 7 to power your pedals. You do have the optional battery power cable, but it's a little inconvenient. Solid product, I have it mounted under my Pedaltrain Novo 18, had to make a hole in one of the brackets because the 1300 mA AC output was preventing the bracket from going on properly. Other than that, love this thing to bits and eliminated the noise I would get from daisy chaining my pedals!

                This quieted down a noisy pedalboard with a cheap supply. Seems to be of very high rugged quality with some power scaling options. Is perfect for my board which houses 7 pedals. I would be willing to put this next to a more expensive supply suspecting similar perfomance.

                Comments about Modtone MT-POWP 9V AC Power Plant Power Supply:

                Good unit. Biggest problem is 12vdc setting dosent have the amperage to push my TC-helicon G-XT. It requires 3.0ma, unit only offers 1.3 I suspect this may be a problem with other 12vdc units. the upside is the 12vac out on the front. I just plugged my Tc's transformer in there and .. Good to go. Unit seems to be nice and quiet even with my hot rodded Wah pedal.

                I have done two pedal board builds with these. Each board is hum free. Will work in pedal-train JR BUT takes mods if you want access to the outlet and dip switches. Has proved very versatile. I use the AC wall outlet for my 12V 400ma Nova drive. Two 9v's for my 18Volt compressor. 12Volt for the uni-Vibe. So far so good

                Doesn't fit under pedal train pro without force

                from Charlotte, NC

                Comments about Modtone MT-POWP 9V AC Power Plant Power Supply:

                The brackets that come with the pedal train pro block the 9VAC out. It is also a VERY tight squeeze to fit between the bars under the board. Theres a video showing it being mounted under a PT Jr, so I figured it'd fit under the Pro no problem. I made it work but I had to cut a piece off one of the brackets to expose the 9VAC out and really smush it in there. So it does kinda fit with some modification and a strong arm. That said, this unit has lots of great features for a power supply. Wish it came with voltage and current doubler cables, but they can easily be made or bought elsewhere.

                I compared the features and versitility of all the professional power supply solutions and this one is the winner. Built with heavy guage metal like Radial and also includes a courtesy AC outlet. This unit made my whole pedal board wisper quiet and I now feel very secure that my pedals will work correctly at every gig.
