High Voltage schematic for the Reference DAC PSU

Posted 20th April 2011 at 08:21 AM by dvb projekt

Here you could see the final schematic for the HV lines.

The two 40mA current taps are the SSHV-Shunts,
one for each channel on the Tube-I-zator.

Finally the engraved top-, front- & backplate arrived.

Surely you are asking yourself, why i made a 1mm deep square around the place for the transformer...

...now here is the answer

Ive got a perfect aluminum transformer housing and now it sits perfect without an air gap.


Now its time to assemble the parts.

well the answer is a

From the first 3 notes coming out of the speakers i knew it was much much better sounding then with the tl431's
(this also confirmed by people i played music to, saying 'WOW' out loud within the first 3 notes being played!!!)
the soundstage is deeper, wider higher, very 3d sounding, lots of air inbetween instruments, there location is now easily identifiable,
detail amazingly has also improved (i thought it was already very detailed) now i hear things i never did before.

SSHV-Shunt Module

Posted 7th April 2011 at 01:19 PM by dvb projekt
Updated 22nd February 2013 at 05:16 AM by dvb projekt (Shipping information addad)

My last thoughts to optimize the Tube-I-zator goes to the B+ High Voltage lines.
To get the maximum flexibility, i have made splitting points in the lines.
The splitting of the anode psu lines brings upgrades possibilities.

You could use e.g. a tube rectifier with C-R-C filter instead of the onboard andoe psu or
switch to a regulated shunt psu, witch in my mind brings the greater sound quality upgrade.

With the experiences from Salas low voltage shunt on my DAC project in mind,
i have made an upgrade module for the Tube-I-zator based on his HV shunt circuit design.

Here it is

The Tube-I-zator V2.0

Click the image to open in full size.

The evolution brings the following changes:

- Heater Switch without any relays
- Low ESR Heater PSU (e.g. Panasonic FM)
- Star Grounding
- Mounting holes for the HV-Salas Shunt Module
- Compacter design





The PCB has the following data:

Material: FR4 - 2mm
Layers: 2
Board size: 193x157 mm
Surface finish: Immersion Gold
Copper weight: 70m
Soldermask: Both sides - green
Silkscreen: Legend on top

Out of production

All lines are designed for the Mundorf M-LYTIC AG+ 4-Pole caps.
If you want to use normal 2-Pole Snap-In caps, just short the pads.

Diode snubber caps could be integrated.

This module is an alternative to the +/- PS module for those,
who dont want to use many small caps.



The PCB will
