  • Onboard power regulation with adjustable voltage rails
  • Optional input transformer
  • LED-lighted push-buttons

Even though FiveFish does not offer a case specifically for the SC-1, it fits in the FiveFish X-12 case. The total cost for a two-channel unit including the X-12 rack case ($190) and two PSU-cables ($4 ea.) is $523, making the adjusted price/channel $261.50.
