Interesting. I was under the impression that the innards of the
all the digitech
xp-* series were the same with the exception of amount of memory and the
the rom. It's possible to burn a rom of the space stations firmware and
to work on some of the other models. Although it does require additional
memory on some of the models. Off hand I don't remember which.
The forums on guitargeek.com have a fair amount of info about
this. Unfortunately, the forum search seems broken at the moment, so
it may be hard to find.
I belive it was Maneco of Manecolooper fame that first
mentioned the possibility.
I've thought about doing it myself to pick up a spare
for my space station, since the prices seem to have doubled
since I picked mine up a couple years ago.

I tend to just use the line6 power supplies, since there are
easy to come by (works for the lexicon vortex as well...). It's
possible a dc powersupply will work (much the same way the line-6
stuff works since apparently the low voltage ac gets rectified
internally) but I havent tried it myself.
