Great little power supply
BasGef, 24.06.2020
Purchased this power supply specifically because it fits under my (flat!) Pedaltrain metro. Does what it should do.

Despite its small form factor, it is a solid power supply that's easily able to power 7-8 pedals of which two are the smaller Strymon boxes. The power supply is very quiet. I could not detect any hum or interference from any pedals being placed immediately on top of the unit, and the isolated outputs work well as long as you carefully match the pedals you put on the same outlet.

This brings me to my one real complaint: It's great that Cioks provides various cables, but I was a little disappointed that only one splitter cable (for two pedals) was provided. Considering the output capabilities of the power supply, at least two of these splitter cables would have been nice; I had to order extra.

Installing the unit underneath the board is quite easy if you have a drill and some DIY experience. Cioks provides a drilling template with the unit. However, be very careful that the right template is included! My v1.2 power supply came with the installation template for v1.1.

Silent and steady
08.02.2017
If you're not like me a technical wizard, you first have to know this:
I first ordered a Coiks Schizophrenic link, great little box and it it did everything as promised. But if you're like me in a very quiet room,you heara little hum. Annoying but no point whatsoever if you play next to a drumkit.
Anyway i wasn't that happy and contacted Coiks via Facebook. I got a reply the next day and was told this is normal for the Coiks Schizophrenic link, it has a UI core based transformers. And advised to return the set an buy a toroidal based one found in the professional range like the DC5 Link. Great advice !!!

The DC5 link is a very strong little box/ brick. The cables could use a little more IKEA-like manual but it really explains itself. I've connected a Fulltone Deja-Vibe 18V, Fulltone Fat-boost 12V, Mxr FET--driver 9V and a Boss RC-3 9V 300mA to it and it works fine.

It isn't a supply to power lots of pedals but it's sufficient for me. The cables ain't that long but long enough for a pedal board and you can get extensions for it.

All in all i'm very pleased, i considered long to buy a more expensive power-supply but don't regret it at all, Should have done it sooner.

Ciocks are geniuses!
James K., 23.04.2018
I spent a long time researching which power supply was the right one for me, i then came across some videos online of bands using this power supply and the owner of the company showing how easy they were to use and install to your pedalboard.
I bought the Ciocks DC5 and had it mounted to my Pedalboard in under 5 Minutes using only a drill, 5mm drillbit, and the included M4 Bolts and allen key.
I checked the DC5 was set to the correct voltage for my country (220-240V) and then used the 5 standard black and white cables to attach my 5 pedals, tuner(9v), fuzz(18v), 2 overdrive pedals(9v) and a compressor(9v). The DC5 was able to power all the pedals with ease (I only had to switch the 3rd output to the 18v selection).
I then plugged in my instrument to the pedals and switched on the amp, the first thing I noticed, SILENCE!, the DC5 is totally silent, I could not hear any hum, also as I was previously using batteries to power my pedals I noticed a much stronger signal and a better sound from the pedals in general due to them now being supplied with clean, regulated, isolated power.
There is no negative to this power supply, apart from perhaps if you are using more than 5 pedals you may need to start using daisy chain cables (one comes with the DC5 which can power 2 pedals from the 1 output) and a full selection of cables can be found on Thomann.
I will use this powersupply exclusively going forward and if anything happens to it (unlikely because its built like a tank) then I will definitley be purchasing another DC5.
