Quick question, what wattage do we need for the 10k resistor between the two caps on the pre-reg board?
Looks great, did you already test/audition them?

Yeh, tried them last week, they sound fine.

The Hammond's arrived today for my other build so i'll be able to hear what the other PSU sounds like in a day or two.

They were from a group buy on the diy section of pinkfishmedia they are called hacker caps. Nice little thing space for four diodes, six caps and with four resistors or coils and a couple of LEDs. Also the earthing arrangements are spectacular.

So, here it is now. I kind of liked this industrial design of the steel cases so I got 2 small ones instead of one big. Hum is almost gone, just a little bit audible hum that is not significantly louder than the noise floor. I have to turn the volume up much further than I could while listening to music, I can live with that.

It sounds still very good which means I likely didn't ruin something during my case experiments... surprise
