That depends on the circumstances. Sometimes a filter makes some sounds softer so you think you lost volume. When a dynamic passage comes around the impression can be different. Usually i find that a lower distortion system sounds more quiet but also has better dynamic range. Sometimes it helps to advance the volume a bit. A low distortion system can be listened to with higher volume without discomfort.

plus Jupiter caps..how sound?
Unobtainium blue finger nails polish (fixes screws so they do not fly with transient behaviour It is also a safe procedure... Once I lent this build to a local hifi club and found that it had been dismantled, so it tells me if anyone did try to remove them during a listening session)

No Jupiter caps... Jensen four poles. In this SE build with low PSRR, even the smoothing caps are important for high freq detail.

Well I listened to my builds with the mensioned mains filters and also with some goldenote (super filters) and I also have a monster cable filter like those and always find that they kill the "magic".

I must refer that I live in a "factory free area", so the mains are quite stable and noise free here.

Blue nail polish for Ergal looks and anti tampering clues then. We just have to make sure nobody we know watches, when we carefully pick nail polish arguing about color with the girl in the local cosmetics shop though.

Extensive research in the new year has led to the discovery of an small but useful improvement to the power supply.

The line regulation under extreme load can be improved significantly by replacing the 2.2K resistor with a 2mA current source. Line voltage ‘swing’ under extreme load (50mA AC on top of 50mA DC) goes down from 346uV (already very low) to 27uV (and that is extreme low).

The current source can be created by replacing the resistor with a J310 fet that has an 1.5K gate-source resistor connected (see detail schema).

P.s. I already informed Hesener and he will make the change.

P.s. Joachim this solves the ‘not so low floor’ problem in the previous FFT, the FFT floor is now about 33dB lowered. See: 3988.
Is this the Last circuit for the pre regulator ?

I have also seen a version including negative railand string of 12 LED.

Same components shown differ from the 2 SCH as in this post the outline of LT1028 is shown.

I am going to start the one with both rails then modify from there
