with so big caps at fist position we have a big current pulse,rfi, better put a small resistor for more conduction angle.....

Hi tea-bag,

they are Vishay, I cannot get them here in 100W so I took 50W and 4x10 Ohm in series and parallel gives 10 Ohm and one 2,2 Ohm and one 1 Ohm and I get the chain of 13,2 Ohm I need with the 45-48V DC an 2x18V AC xformer from my FW PSU can make......

the sound its really a big change now I can understand the BTW was speaking of "tube rolling" ; I made resistor rolling........

my battle between resistor solution and Mufollower is still not decided ...

not to speak of the Salas CCS..

juanitox,

I am sorry to hear about your hum, after I got away from the + -24V arrangement from the First Watt PSUs, and built it like Mike suggested with 48V I have no hum, only going to the speaker very close I can hear a little bit....

unfortunately i have no good idea what you should do,

when the hum is induced by the bias voltage you could try a nine Volt block instead for a moment, may be the hum is over.....
you will be happy about your thick film resistors....

and there must be a simple solution for your hum.....

Take your time. It's a journey. We'll all still be here.

Yes, I can send you two from Germany maybe faster....

I have an idea, I would build only one channel with no extras, only main function to isolate the guilty part.


Oh rereading your posting you did not kill the SIT, but the bridge rectifier.... So no need to send you a part I suppose...

I pulled up my notes:

The resistor / lightbulb version measured 70 nanowatts noise + hum. With 101 dB speakers @ 2 meters distance that would be around 23 dB, or somewhere between a really quiet room and a faint whisper.

Forgive me for quoting the wrong units earlier (uV). I was away from my underground lair.
