I checked the manual for E36313A to double check if this could be run as a bipolar output (i.e. if you wanted say generate +/-15v, by connecting two terminals together. (Page 3 here shows this config in the datasheet for the BK Precision model 9130B) https://bkpmedia.s3.amazonaws.com/downloads/datasheets/en-us/9130B_Series_datasheet.pdf

Have you been able to run your Keysight this way? Thanks!
You can do that with the E36313A too. It is a basic feature of every dual channel power supply. In tracking mode you can adjust both positive and negative voltage in one go.

I thought so too, it didn't seem like that configuration was anything special; odd that BK Precision would try to sell you on that though!  On the keysight, the auto-serial mode with Chan 2 + 3 seems pretty neat, for an extended range to 50vdc.  This going to run me $2,860 but I'm throwing in the towel and going with the keysight.  Thanks!

IMHO the GW Instek GPP-4323 offers good value for money while avoiding the short comings of the Siglent (no keypad) and Rigol (channels not fully isolated).

Hey, nice one, only i see no youtube movies, is it new ?
There is a good review here:

There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.
