I've been pleased with the TruTone CS6 on my Nano+ board.  I may try one of their bigger supplies.  That said, I also have not had any issues with the following:

Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2+ (I have three of these)
Voodoo Labs Mondo
Cioks Adam
MXR MC403
BBE Supa Charger

How are you liking that CS6? I've been eyeing that one for a while. There's a lot of versatility there in a tiny package. My board is bigger but I honestly think it would cover all my bases and I really like the form factor.

I opened the P3 distribution box up and there doesn't seem to be a lot going on. Is this any better than a daisy chain?

Itís decoupled at least? Otherwise, Iíd think no, itís not any better.

I picked up the CS12 and am pretty happy with it so far. The only issue Iím experiencing is that the included power cables donít seem to work reliably with lumberg dc jacks. Has anyone else had that issue? Whatíre some better choices for cables if thatís a regular thing here?

If you are using the smallbear jacks (SKU:0611G) like this, they are pretty terrible. I've had all 4 that I ordered go intermittent and then just stop working.

Yeah, those are among the ones Iím using. Sometimes the barrel has to be rotated to work correctly. With an old daisy chain cable, I never had issues with connections (barring the occasional rotation), but with the OneSpot cables, some cannot make a connection at all.
