Default helder mk3 ta2024

i really like my dayton dta-1 amplifier.so i finally decided to get a helder mk3 2024 board ordered today.does anyone have any experience with this particular version?this board can accept either ac,or dc input.which would i be better off doing just getting a transformer,or building an entire power supply?either way for starters i will probably just use a transformer.with consideration of the upgrade path if needed.

Took delivery of one of these last week and I'm currently using a switch mode 12v psu that normally powers my modified 41hz Amp32.
Doesn't sound as good as the 41hz amp and hope it will improve with burn-in.
If I had a 9v transformer I would use that instead with the on-board rectification and bulk cap of the Helder board.

Let us know how you find it soundwise when it arrives.

With the onboard rectifier and bulk cap a 9v ac input will near as damn it give 12v dc.

You would be over 16v with that and IIRC the TA2024 maximum is something like 13.8v.
