I did looked at the power supplies on the SGC site. The only one I saw for the i7 sonictransporter was the 200W version, which seems like overkill for only one device. Do you know of any other options?

Check with Andrew at SGC to find out what he recommends for minimum power needs.
I use the HDPlex 100W unit, which is no longer made. I have no issues running the i7 unit out of the 19V output. I am also using two other power outputs, simultaneously.
The advantage of a multiple output LPS is that once you realize the upside from it with one unit, it makes sense to power your other computer related peripherals from it. The extra spend on the higher Wattage units with multiple outputs is worth considering.
If you want to be a stickler, then a single output LPS would be the way to go. Downsides are that it gets expensive if you want to power more than one unit and means more power cables to the extra LPS units you have, as well as the extra rack space.
The 200W unit that SGC sells is the HDPlex 200. There are other options for a LPS if you want to save a bit. I have found HDPlex very responsive as a company. They swapped out a unit for me. Andrew is terrific with customer support as well.
There are higher performing units out there, but they come at much higher costs.
@david_ten 200W PS on the way. Andrew assured me the unit came with a cord compatible with my Liberty DAC. I was about to buy the Sbooster PS for the Liberty. Boy, am I happy I waited.
Still waiting for the sonicTransporter to ship. Once I get everything setup, I'll reach out to via PM.
Thanks for you help with all of this.
