Default Need a 12vdc 2.5a linear power supply

Hello everyone, I have a piece of stereo equipment that uses an external power supply. the spec on it says output 12v dc and 2.5 amps. it's a cheapo little switching power supply. i'd like to replace it with a linear transformer type.

all the off-the-shelf 12vdc linear transformer type supplies i can find only go up to about 1.5 amps max. larger than 1.5 amps, and they all seem to be switching.

does anyone know of a source for something like this? i see plenty of aftermarket hifi linear transformer power supplies (for example, as an upgrade to logitech squeezebox) but they all seem to be made for 5v or 9v output, i dont see any with 12v output.

any ideas are appreciated. i'm not savvy enough to build this myself. thank you

I would put a request in at the vendors bazaar on diyaudio.com and ask someone within the US to build you a linear power supply.

or you could wait here, or make another thread entitled "please make me a linear 12v psu"

I'm sure there are plenty of people out there with nothing but transformers sitting on their shelves who could build you one for some cash.

diyaudio is against your rights. I do not have the right to be forgotten and after asking the issue has been ignored, therefore I'm leaving (peacefully) for this reason. I stand up for my rights. So long and thanks for all the Fish
