Do NOT use mains directly without a safety transformer!!! I would reccommend a few UcD700 modules in paralelled pairs that you bridge, way safer than trying to build a suicide machine with direct mains feed.

My five cents.

You are right Tekko,

That's why I give suggestion that costly, more expensive than buy isolated PS.

I know also that this forum reject the discussion for direct connection to mains. My suggestion is for people who ready to take serious risks to connect their amp directly to mains at their home.

I am a little astonished that this has not had some big-time moderator warning attached yet, nevermind being deleted/moved to Texas/locked.

I was reading this and, although going directly to mains is not a great idea, could you run a Balanced AC circuit through the walls(balanced AC is 60v+/- for US vs single ended 110/120v) and plug the powersupply for a UCD 700 directly into the wall taps, along with the rest your equiptment. I know that they sell balanced AC rack units (which contain a very large transformer) and believe that they are available for an in wall installation that are up to code...

I thought about something similar, but with two transistors in push-pull into a transformer, like in old tube-amps.
What do you think?

kubeek,

I hope your other thread gets attention as long as your intention is to not power it directly from mains.
Every now and then we have to warn members and close threads like this. It's hard for us mods to determine if members have enough experience with this kind of applications. I believe few of us have.
Besides that, we don't want to waste our life for that one big-power project do we?
