I run in the regulator with about 29 volts, that should be ok.

But I don't like to burn my house down on accident.

Is there a easy way to get the 29 v a little down to have a
little more headroom regarding the heatsinks?

Thanks,
Christoph

Second start with two supplies and seperate grounds, lipo batteries from my rc helicopter, and the paradise works fine. So its no question for me to bulid up to supplies.

I was suprised about the sound at the first beginning, fast, open and clear, the perfect match for my DIY setup > Audio » Hörraum

Great job guys! Special thanks to Gerhad for this mad design, i saw and heard one of the first hedgehog at frickelfest 2010

Best regards
Chris

Brozatus once you get Paradise working you may find that is worth getting separate box for suply and 2 separate suplies as Take 5 did no need to say one can still ignore me.

So Ignore this as well
From picture you got mains soket right next to caps and Trafo next to cokes and cable running all over the place DC from capacitors running under trafo from looks of it
Move the trafo next to mains plug and rest will slot in to place

FDW on board suply is prety good but......

Dear Bksabath,

at first let me say I never ignored your advices and never will.
As my english lessons at school are now 38 years ago I have some trouble to read and write in english, it is not my native language. So I often have to use Babelfish to translate things. And it is sometimes not so easy to figure out what you meant.

Thanks to your words to my case and cabeling, I will check it again. At least I can manage the arrangement of the dc cables (close to but not under the toroidals).

There are two toroidals and two supplies in the case.

I can easyly built a separate case for the psu, but will try this first.

Best regards,
Christoph
