Papa use that way in his FW amps ;

reason is simple - cleaner ground and prevented possible xformer buzz , in case of slightest un-symmetry of secondaries

Naim wakoos use same technique , in their amps , if I remember correctly

reasons are completely high fidelity - hard work for every little detail
result is cumulative

One step further : more than one secondary with their own diode bridges, and more than one transformer per channel.

Just ordered some BA-2 boards.
Have there been any design changes since the last lot?
Regards,
Chris

It has been a while since I did the changes, so this is from an email I wrote back then:

BAGS
- Fix error ±
- Updated version number and date
- Added extra holes 120mm and 60mm apart the other way
- Size: 130x70 mm

BACO
- Increased size to 250x50
- Adjusted holes to 80mm and 5mm from board edge
- Updated version
- Deleted one set of diodes and moved the others in center
- Size: 250x50 mm

BASO
- Same as BACO
- Size: 250x50 mm

BACB
- Resized to 50x50mm
- Moved holes 5mm from edge
- Updated text
- Size 50x50 mm

BASB
- Resize to 50x60mm (difficult to get down to 50x50 due to elna silks)
- Moved holes 5mm from edge
- Updated text
- Changed the S wire routing
- Size 60x50mm

Basically, the main difference is that output and bias boards have become slightly larger to provide a standard for boards at diyAudio moving forward.

Just broke out in a sweat when I saw the size increase but my ruler says I can still fit the boards in the chassis.

Excuse me for asking a novice question but what differs the single ended version from the complementary version? Which one is right for me?

kind regards
