And this is the other one: Front and rear of one side to one supply and front/rear of the other side and center to the other supply:

Gaincalculating of the UcD;

Gain=(1+2*A/B)*D/C

Please see picture.

In the current module, the values are;
A= 1000 ohm
B= 560 ohm
C= 1800 ohm
D= 8200 ohm

Thanks to Bruno.

Regards,

Jan-Peter

Well at least you'd go for an arrangement which is left/right symmetrical.

1) The trivial case is one power supply for everything.
2) Front channels on one, remainder on the other.
3) Rear channels on one, remainder on the other.

I don't think there is much difference between 1, 2 and 3. A three-supply arrangement can make a difference: FL and RL have their own supply, the remainder shares the third.

Personally I wouldn't bother with intermediate arrangements. Either I'd have one supply for 5 channels or I'd have 5 mono blocks.

Bruno,

Since I will have two 500VA transformers and two sets of rectifier/BCC-cap (all supplied by Jan-Peter), will nickywicky's solution be the best? Will I need additional components for that solution?

How would that supply look in schematics?

Thanks for the help so far!

Frans

Since it is already decided you will be using two supplies, I'd go for one supply for left/right, an other for the two rears and center.
Under the presumption that most of the power will be in the front channels this will give you the best reserve.

Hi, What exactly is Jan-Peter supplying in his powersupply kits?

Is it:
- 2x 10,000 caps
- single rectifier
- anything else?

Do these rectifiers benefit from bypassing with a small cap?

Would there be any benefit in a high end setup (using only a single transformer) from:
a) using two power supplies, one for each channel
b) using two rectifiers, one for each power rail

Thanks

Ewildgoose,

In the kit we have;
500VA toroidel transformer for 230V and 115V mains, gives 2x57VDC.
10.000uF / 63V BC Components capacitor (056 series, 2222.056.58103)
KBPC3502 bridge rectifier.
4x 100nF MKP capacitor.

Regards,

Jan-Peter

a: yes. The improvement in stereo imaging is clearly noticeable, and therefore worthwhile
b: no, but. You can use lower voltage rectifiers, making the use of schottky diodes practical. If you're using non-schottky rectifiers, don't bother.

Hi,

Just returned from a visit to hypex to collect my 5 UcD400's and the power supplies. They were just testing the modules (nrs 049-053) so I had time for a chat. Very nice!

Jan-Peter suggested to use them balanced, but my pre-pro (Linn 5103) doesn't have a balanced output. He suggested to mak a cable with on one end XLR and on the other end RCA, with the - connected to ground at the RCA-side. What type of cable can I use for this? It needs at least 3 leads, can I for example connect the outer shielding to - at the XLR-side and to ground at the RCA-side?

You need only 2 leads, not 3. The third "lead", which connects pin 1 to ground, is the shield itself. Ask for "microphone cable" in an electronics store.
