Regarding the Power Supply issue… You need to check out TheGigRig (www.thegigrig.com)
As you may already know, the issue with these units is the start up current draw – it's particularly high since it has to run a diagnostic which temporarily flashes the entire LCD display – there's your culprit… operating current is much lower.
I have all four eventide stomps, plus four Roland expression pedals mounted on a PT-2 with all the power supply mounted underneath.
Just ONE GigRig Generator is needed, then a distributor (which is just a punchdown block to distribute the wiring), and each Eventide stomp needs an Even-Flo adaptor. I have just one IEC cable coming out to my board, very tidy…
