Virtually everything you do changes sound so we can discuss subjective impressions for the next years. That is fine with me.
I only would like to make sure that the people that buy the Paradise Kit plus the preregulator do not get the impression that they compromised.
I think with the chosen components and values the result will be excellent. There is always a tuning option though so please go ahead and try out whatever floats your boat.
Or sinks it

Not at all.
It's just the case that, behind the curtains, there is a discussion
about how to do the "prereg" best.
Especially with the parts from the GB.

Clearly I am excluded from the behind the curtains discussion and in regards to the parts GB if you are talking about the Paradise Goodies bags this got nothing to do with the voltage coming in from the Pre regulators.

I was only atempting to answer to post 1405 with my personal opinion based on the beta build I have been listening to for quite same time.

Besides Joakim in post 1419 has my 100% agreement
Frans in post 1420 suggest 25 V and maybe this is the sweet spot.
I am running 26 V and Iwill be more than happy to change that to 25 V DC entering The pardise boards

In the mean time HIFI cat gained a fair bit of information as answer to his post of the 12/02

Nope Sandro,
you are not excluded, but this happens to be in german language.

And your build seems to have a slightly bigger cooler (like mine).

Hi there,
since i populate my paradise with rather mediocre parts;
where would it, soundwise, be worth to drop some Dales ?
33R ?
RIAA is already solved.

In my experience Dales, especially the bigger sized ones, have a very slightly warm and spacially big sound. I use them in the RIAA and at the input to load the cartridge.
My standart resistor is the Yageo 1% metal film from Reichelt. No objection with the sound.
Somewhat better ( lower noise, better stability and tempco ) is the Beyschlag MMB.
Vishey Z Foils are very low noise and very high stability. Expensive and a liitle bit bright, so when your Paradise sounds too dark a Z Foil here and there can help the balance. It is more importand though how you stuff the RIAA. Michaels and my " house curve " gives tremendoes slam in the bass. Ricardos " mathematical" values give optimum neutrality, independent from the quality of the parts provided they are "good" industrial standart. Look into a Quad or McIntosh component. You will not see any " boutique" part and they are famous to last forever. Why ?
