Sounds like there is a market for a third-party higher-quality power supply with a premium XLR connector.

was thinking about this.....maybe it is cheaper than paying someone $60/hr bench time to rebuild the PS every decade or so?

and certainly less noise potential in the circuit, too?

Or you could just buy a replacement directly from Moog?

I'm not familiar with the Minimoog reissue, but my Moog Liberation used an XLR plug from a remote power supply. One mistake was using the shell as ground because that connection isn't entirely reliable. Not sure if the Minimoog reissue uses the XLR shell as ground.
