I agree.  The couple bucks in power section bits is minuscule compared to all of the other parts and the PCB.

thanks gents. i was thinking more in line with putting this in an enclosure with another +/-15v pedal and powering them both from a separate power supply - which, in theory should work if they are connected in parallel i believe.

If you heatsinked the regulators on the Lab Series board (you'll need a tall enough enclosure), you might be able to run the other board off it. Depends on current draw.

Amazing build. If somebody wants to sell his pedal, I'm interested!
