Default KiwiSDR power supply

I expect to receive my KiwiSDR tomorrow and I am trying to figure out how I am going to power it. Their website warns against using switching power supplies because of the potential for interference but the cost of a linear supply (approximately $50 or so) goes against my intuitions as a ham. Does anyone have any recommendations based on your experiences with this receiver?

Thanks and 73

With all your toys a good Astron will do you proud. I use a 50a for the big stuff and a 20a for the accessories. No spurious signals into receivers. Both loaf at the current drawn, run cool. Go for it.

I do have toys and I have several 12V supplies but this thing needs a clean 5V supply. Any suggestions?
