SB560s are a stock item with one of the places I use for parts so I'm back on track with it.

Thanks for the info

John

Thanks for that. I was hoping for a UK supplier as the postage would have been cheaper, but beggars cant be choosers as they say.

Thanks

Digikey seems nice enough to have a UK oriented site...

I hadn't even noticed the UK button there. Something can be got, one way or another to get the job going again.

Thanks to one and all for the help

John

Is there a suitable replacement for the MSR or does anyone know of a supplier for them that Google isn't finding?

Hi John, Farnell stock them, here .The picture shows three legs but they do only have two..

I hope you have more luck than me building it, I just can't eliminate a hum on the 3.6V side that can be heard at high volume.
I did build it using Mick's original design with only one stage voltage reduction...
Good Luck..

The one site I didn't check! I normally use either RS, Cricklewood Electronics or Rapid and have never used Farnell. Theres a first time for everything mindst.

The Playstation is used in a smallish room with LM3875 and CSS FR125s. It only goes "loud" when the neighbours need "training" about their screeching children and blaring tv/cd! Theres something wrong about having Wailing Whitney Houston coming through the wall and interfering with the Sex Pistols (sounds like bad acid to me)

Is your buzz audible in normal nearfield type volume levels or is it just when you are going to eleven?

Cheers John

It is a sort of fizzing buzz and is probably due to poor board layout. I haven't got as far as to use it on my main Playstation/system yet which is LM3875 with Monitor Audio GR10's.
I have tried separate trans' and different voltages but nothing makes a difference..

Nice! I wasn't thinking of re casing the playstation, just improving on the power supply. Mine still has the 10 price sticker from the pawnbroker shop stuck to it. It appeals to my "frugal" nature.

I think I recall you saying that you had problems with the circuit, I will re read the thread before going any further.

Anyone else got any input on this?

John
