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.

ads L810 may need caps?

Posted 20th April 2011 at 01:23 AM by neptune07

i remember ads L810 sounding better years ago, but alas my hearing in not what it used to be, how i check the cap in the crossovers, what value should it measure, what replacements would compliment the speakers?

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.

KENWOOD L-09 amp MODS

Posted 16th April 2011 at 06:18 PM by tube dog

re: KENWOOD L-09 amp MODS :

Have interest in mods to improve these DC mono block amps. After 32 years of service, a RECAP job of electrolytics ( 2) is in order for my pair (electroylics caps dry-out and BURST/ FAIL - and will take-out 24 output transistors and probably your speakers also ) So while the IRON IS HOT ..... I noticed the following possible mods to improve these amps' performance :
MOD #1- Replace 6 foot # 16/2 ' zip cord ' AC power cord....with 2 foot of # 8/2 ( amp pulls 1200 watts @ full power each ) note; a # 10/4 stranded copper power cable can be wired in 2 pairs ( red+black / white+green ) which eliminates DRILLING chassis opening LARGER to accomadate # 8/2, but will NET #8/2 gauge AND provide added shielding with 4 conductor spiraling ! THIS IS A NO BRAINER AND SHOULD MAKE THIS AMP BREATH a bit easier
(note : factory issue AC cord has NO ground conductor-and I would suggest NOT adding a grounded conductor to new 15 amp plug either-...

well the answer is a
BIG YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

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

Updated 14th June 2013 at 09:47 AM by dvb projekt

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

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.

Low effort Class D with ready made modules

Posted 5th April 2011 at 04:45 PM by alexcp (My DIY projects)
Updated 6th April 2011 at 01:29 PM by alexcp

To try out Class D without working too much, I picked two ready-made Class D amplifier modules: one is the $45 2*100 Watt Class-D Audio Amplifier Board from Sure Electronics with the optional $10 volume control board, the other is the $199 IRAUDAMP7S from International Rectifier.

The Sure Electronics module is based on Tripath's TK2050 chipset. Powered from a 150W 24V SMPS from Mean Well, it predictably puts out about 22W RMS to a 8 ohm load. (The declared 2*100W requires a 30V supply and a 4 ohm load.) The sound and the measurements are decidedly mediocre, although at the $45 price, the module still may be a good value. Also, the volume control board feels odd, as the knob only adjusts volume after a push; another push disconnects it again.

The IRF module requires dual rail supply, for which I chose an SMPS400A180 by hypex. With +/-40V rails, the amplifier delivers 100W RMS into a 8 ohm load. The measurements are good, and the sound is very interesting for...
