Yep, you are right between virtual grounds 82V and load has to be perfect symmetry otherwise heavier load side collapses and lighter side gets much higher up to 84v. I am opening up the transformer to separate to make 2 independent secondaries and thinking about to making zener, triac and bjt safety circuit to short or balance load on lighter side ultimately cut off secondary from bridge. Too much ???

Sorry to be really silly.

Don't you have 110 v supply in the states

Sort of 55+- If referenced to ground?

Why do you bother with tans formers Just stick a plug to the bridge and a few caps after that.

Just as Papa to design something with 60 70 v rails.

Here in the UK we have tons of 55 0 55 transformers that we use for power tools and they are preaty cheap Think I got a 3000VA in the loft.

Hum... (some body really claver is going to tel me to have a look at the Aleph 1.2)
