Default Wide-band common mode filters

If you want to understand more about what these things do, visit http://www.mag-inc.com/ and select "Library". You can download some really nice articles on ferrite material selection, common-mode filter design, etc. There's even a software program available.

There's more to the choke than the bandwidth over which the material is effective. Max current and inductance are the primary specs of interest. For $3, you might be looking at parts that will saturate even with a low current drawing appartus like a CD player.

Second, the material selection depends in part on what kind of noise you have that you want to remove. Some material types are going to be more effective over certain frequency ranges than others. None are going to offer ruler flat noise attenuation across the freq. bandwidth mentioned. Besides Magnetics, there are many other ceramic/ferrite core manufacturers that will be happy to indulge you with free information.

Default Data from Murata

BNX-0002 is rated for 10 amps (!!!) and has a rated voltage of 50V, tested to 125V DC. Despite these impressive numbers, it measures 12 mm by 11mm...

Trying it in a CDP power supply (TDA1541 dac, 1 bnx-0002 in each of +5, -5 and -15 lines) gave a subtle but worthwhile improvement in what I can only describe as emotiveness. Baically the thing sounded more musical, more emotional. Horrible description I know but that what I heard. I'll do further listening.
I was expecting more detail, not sure I heard much of that.
