See this post by Ian for suggestions on how to go further.

Brent also has a good summary of upgrading the servo section on his site here

You're welcome man, just passing on what I got from the other guys. By the way, Parts ConneXion still has some of the snap-in Mundorf 25v 22,000uF caps on clearance at 40% discount right now. It'd be well worth picking up 3 of those for your pre-reg smoothers. You can ask them to match a pair for the output.

Ben, are you still using the on/off switch with that transformer behind the tray? Only asking from a physical size point of view.

Yes Ian, and the cross brace. It's snug but it fits.

Lol!!! It's a bit on the heavy side that's for sure!! Sounds every bit as good as the reviews. Managed to get a circuit diagram too and it's very simple but uses good components and has a very good power supply. Sounds bloody amaizing!

Nice bike ;-) my pals got an 09 an it's bloody awesome. Weighs less than my amp ( well almost) just need the sun now mate ;-) I managed 1 day on mine last week but it's back under a sheet in the garage again......come on the sun!!!!

Plugged my DOS in last night. LEDs came on but no sound. Ho hum.

Been doing a few PSU cap changes and constantly amazed by the difference they make. I tried Silmics in the output post-reg position in place of Black Gate STD and quite liked bits of the mid-range detail but overall found the top end too harsh and the bass too flabby. Trying BG STD for op-amp power in place of BG N. Early days but liking it a lot so far.
