I've used the FF UC since their beta program and did think the interface got quite warm after a while.

For this very reason it sits on top of my stack of stuff and has an empty DVD cover underneath it to further facilitate a little more heat dissipation.

The power supply is a little KTEC brick.

The one to get is the NT-RME-2 powersupply.
Input: 100 - 240V~ 50/60 Hz, 2A, for Fireface UCX, Fireface UC, QuadMic, Babyface, ADI-2, ADI-4DD.

There's a version that's lockable, whatever that means, which is for the MADIface XT, QuadMic II, Babyface Pro and ADI-2 Pro.

Nothing on power supplies for any other products, at least at a casual glance.

I had the FF800 for over 10 years and almost never turned it off except once or twice. Went away for the weekend once and turned it off - it never turned back on. Managed to replace the power supply and got a few more years out of it and then it died when the mains power went off and back on again - couldn't get a replacement power supply. Now have the FF802, fingers crossed it lasts for 10 years or more but now all my gear is attached to a battery backup system (just in case).

Perhaps there's a market in offering an upgrade service for RME units with these PSU's.
