These days I use switchers for all but AC. I've replaced the transformers
in my drives too. But for the 16/116 probably every modern, single voltage
piece will be more reliable than the original one :-) To be more on the
safe side you might want to build some protection in inside the computer
itself. What I did for my 64 (actually for heat reasons rather than over
voltage protection) are adjustable digital VRs just before the analogue
ones. Digital are set only slightly above the minimal ratings of the
analogue ones which makes them emit less heat but should incidentally also
provide a crude form of protection. At least minimise the SPOF effect.
