I think they use 80V caps, the same ones as in the B500S, for the B200S they actually to big, and they failed in the B500S because 80V was tight since the power supply was 80V. They put out an eco for this.

Yes just a small 12V adapter.

Just finished my rack, added some pedals to it and installed the fans on the back and also a Harting connector plate.(which is going to my pedal board).
Left it on for 4 hours, the MP-1 and MP-2 didn't even got warm, they felt the same as they where off. Works like a charm, happy with it.

Looking very cool MJMP (pardon the pun LoL)  So what do you do with the pedals, I see they are on a sliding shelf, do you set them and then turn them on/off with the midi patchbay thingy?  And have you taken out the front mounted 1 RU small fans, now you have the 3 RU fans from the back.  I'm assuming it blows air onto the MP-2 and MP-1 3TM.

I have 5 pedals and a 1 spot power supply on the shelf for the rest a tc hyper gravity compressor which goes to the MP-2 (which I only use for cleans) and sits in 1 loop with the MP-2 so it's always on for cleans. Then a MXR phase 90 in loop 1 and a tc vicious vibe in loop 2, so before the preamps which I can switch in and out via a CC knob on my midi pedal (or via a preset). Loop 3 is the MP-1 and loop 4 is the MP-2, loop 5 is the MQ-1, loop 6 the digitizer, loop 7 has the eventide H9 pedal and loop 8 the strymon big sky (an amazing reverb pedal). The 2FX is in the loop of the MP-1 and is just used for flanging. The midi pedal is a sort of upgraded version of the MXC with the quad switches build in and some small changes and add ons. And one cable going to the rack.

Yes I took out the 1U fans since I didn't need them anymore. The 3U is much better for cooling and more quiet. They blow air over the MP-1 and MP-2 and a bit over the G force.

Hey MJMP,

     That's a pretty tight looking rig, and from what I can see, pretty versatile too. Love it! :thumb-up:

So spotted this as a possible addition mounted at the top on the rear rack rails https://www.macarac.com.au/products/sanus-ecosystem-1u-ultra-quiet-fan-panel

That's what I was thinking, also only takes 1RU on the back as I have to be able to get to the midi in on the MP-2 and the B200s outs.
