    I'm building up a new pedalboard, and I need a power supply that has the juice to power my Line6 G50 wireless receiver (regular 9v DC, but it has a 300 mA draw, which is too much for the ModTone power supply I have on another board) as well as an AC tap to power my Voodoo Labs Pedal switcher. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    What else will be on the board? How many mA will you need?

    You could use a burkley Flatliner + the pro rectifier

    The Cioks AC10 would give you

    1 AC 800ma section at 9,12 or 16volts
    1 DC 600ma section at 9,12 or 15volts (this section could be converted to another 800ma AC section if needed)
    2 DC 200ma sections at 9 or 12 volts
    2 DC 100ma sections at 9 volts

    Pedalgear Juicebox is probably the finest quality PSU made. That would fit the bill.

    There's nothing super current-intensive on there, besides the wireless receiver:

    Dunlop wah
    tuner
    ISP noise gate
    solidgoldfx Nitro boost

    The one potential curveball is that in addition to that stuff, I also like to run an Xotic EP Boost at 18v, but for that I can use two 9v taps jumpered together. But there aren't any mA-thirsty digital effects on there.

    Brian of Pedalshark beat me to it. AC10. Of course, Brian would know, he's an authorized Cioks dealer. Contact him for your Cioks needs, he also has all the new Cioks cables.

    There are Cioks cables now?

    He probably meant the cables that connect the pedals to the PSU, not guitar/patch/speaker cables.

    Do you think the AC8 would work for this setup, as well?

    and PS: I'm curious to know the marketing decision behind the Cioks P*ssy Power!

    The AC8 won't work in your needs. Based on the info you provided, the wireless unit needing 9V @ 300mA, the AAC8 doesn't have a high output tap to power it. The DC taps on the AC8 are only rated at 100mA each.
