    just checked the outputs - according to plugs.

    pi - 5v 2.5A
    fm trans - 12v 0.3A (this was one i had in drawer, but has been working for several years)
    switch - 5v 0.6A
    router - 12v 0.5A

    If it was me, I would do the Mean Well RD-65A. Few $$ more, but covers today’s needs, with spare, plus room for future.

    Edit: Pi May need more than 2.5A if you attach any devices, such as a thumb drive, or ???. For me, a 3A buck is too small.

    Some people don't like like the adjustable ones. They find the voltage changes too quickly or they drift. I used a similar version to power an arduino clone from 12v to run my Halloween spooky eyes. Worked fine for me. Just one more thing to check each year that the voltage is still in the acceptable range.
