Hi

Can I use only one TX to feed two prereg psuīs to power the Paradise ?

I have one suitable TX that has double output windings and would like to minimize crosstalk using double bridges and caps, forming two psuīs.

I am afraid this might cause hum due to using the same TX secondaries to feed both bridges in parallel.

Can it be done like this ?

Cant see any problem with that, you should pay attention to the groundwiring though when you implement it.
After all, you use the same powergrid anyway, for your mains

Yes you can, but you start off with a ground loop inherently build in and that may get to be a problem. I would advise to use 2 TX's to prevent this. If you select to use one TX then you need to take good care of the grounding scheme that you are going to use.

Hi Frans

That is my main concern... I once used a similar configuration and got a hum issue I could not solve.

Would you please point me the ground loop ?

What do you suggest as a good groundin scheme to avoid itīs intrusiveness ?

The 'ground loop' is more like a multiple connected ground system, where one connection is routed though the transformer (both amps share the same ground return to the TX) and the other connection is at the input (the shared return/ground of the cartridge/player). The shared cartridge connection can be broken by using a 5 wire connection to the player (connecting Left+ and Left- to the left amp, Right+ and Right- to the right amp, and having a separate player ground to the amp ground).

This is not something that I have experience with, and something that I would not advice. My advice is, get 2 TX's
