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)

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.
