The last communication I received told me that despatch had been brought forward from 10th December to 22nd October, but so far... nothing.

There is of course a reasonably sensible and elegant solution to the external PSU issue. But it would probably require some kind of legislation, like the EU have just enacted in the smartphone market.

That is to mandate a USB C Power Delivery socket on everything, that requires external power. Universal, There are already multi-output high power chargers out there, and I could well imagine some of the more niche MI companies coming up with power distribution blocks for stage or studio use.

And you can get some nice robust woven sheath USB C cables that seem a lot more gig-ready than a lot of the bell wire efforts outs there with some synths (I’m looking at you Roland)

They do keep updating the power delivery specs, which means you have to make sure you use a cable rated for the power delivery required.

"USB Power Delivery offers the following features:
Increased power levels from existing USB standards up to 240W.
New 28V, 36V, and 48V fixed voltages enable up to 140W, 180W and 240W power levels, respectively.
An adjustable voltage supply mode allows the device being powered an ability to request intermediate voltages between 15V and up to the maximum available fixed voltage of the charger."

The big problem with using USBC for power delivery on audio equipment is that the connectors simply aren’t robust enough for a gigging environment.

I'm sure Neutrik could engineer a solution to that (if they haven't already).

Ah - they have
