Back to pick your brains, im going to try and breadboard the psu for this cd transport, its pretty essential i think that if im going to progress anywhere in this hobby breadboarding is a must and ill be able to experiment a lot more, i also think it will reassure me i know the schismatics if i know i can breadboard them up.

IT may be spot on and i just need reasuring from a more experienced mind or i may be horribly wrong and are saving my self from certain doom but if i were to point tp point the psu is this correct?

kanifee -

Your picture shows +12V and-12V input, but if those wires are coming direct from the transformer, as they should be, it's actually 12-0-12V AC.

Your earth wire goes to the centre tap of the 12-0-12V transformer, right?

i dont actually posses the trany yet, im buying that the week coming but yes that would go to the center tap, to be honest im unsure about trany types as well so im still looking into that the only trany ive used had dual secondarys and 4 wires coming from the trany, ac1,ac1 and ac2,ac2 though im making an educated gues that both lives go to 12v and the earth goes to the 0 line. im unsure about 3 wire tranys though i have seen people using some with 2 wires joined, any info on this? and does the pic look correct aslong as all wires go to correct points on the trany?

EDIT layout of the pic and the lines was more to do with keeping it less jumbled though i did realise why the origanel had the wires laid out 12 ground 12 instead of 12 12 ground like me

kanifee-

With dual secondaries you create a centre tapped winding by joining the end of the ac1 winding to the beginning of the ac2. Check with a meter before going any further.
