Are there any power supplies that posters here would NOT recommend due to them emitting high noise levels?

My Alinco DM-330MVE is very noisy on 80m and 160m. Shifting the noise with the control works for 20 minutes or less, and reoccurs. I use mine in ZS with 240VAC.

(My RS-35M was dead quiet on the bands, except for occasional transformer hum. Tightening screws did not help.)

If you use a high amp power supply it becomes more important that you fuse each device separately. This isn't a bad idea anyway.

My Astron 35m just quit. Was starting to hum really loud then nothing. Fuse burned out. Tried another fuse and bang burned it out as well.
So looking into an Astron 20M ..30 amps 25 continuous. Any issues?. 
Flex 6300, Yaesu FT-2900, MFJ Intellituner, and a string of LED lights.

Just ordered a new 35M. The old one will get repaired at a later date.
