Once again FDD/HDD not CF where current consumption at worst case is approximately 10 times lower than on best case scenario for FDD/HDD .
As Meynaf pointed earlier - FDD/HDD are mechanical and they use significantly more power than SSD/CF/SD etc - as such current ripple is way higher and this current ripple will propagate also to Paula and as final effect to audio output.
Hope you see difference between 100mA and 1.0A - formally such thing is called PSRR http://www.analog.com/static/importe...als/MT-043.pdf
- in Amiga voltage reference for DAC is taken directly from power lines
trough very minimalistic low pass filter - in decent audio equipment you have at least dedicated low noise voltage regulator (as people complain for noisy voltage regulators such as LM317) to improve PSRR.
Somehow you trying to convince me that noisy power supply with low quality power distribution, with variable load between 25 and 30% (in peaks) of maximum power supply capabilities and very simplistic circuit used to feed voltage reference source have no impact on audio quality.
