Question Aleph 5 Trans

Hello,

I am about to start my Aleph 5 project. But about the transformer, I can find a ready-made 25-0, 25-0 350VA trans.

Is that good for Aleph 5 (one channel)?

If I calculate

25 x 1.25 = 31.25V on rail

Will this degrade the sound performance?

Or better to order a 28-0, 28-0 ones?

Please help!

Thanks Guys!

Jesse

When you´re finished with your Aleph have a listen to "Jesse" from Mother Earth. One of my favourite songs.

Jens - being offtopic as per usual

Mother Earth have got 2 great albums at the Acid Jazz label.
The first album "people tree" is a bit more acid jazz and the second "you´ve been watching" more like rock.
Very well played instruments, love the vocals and great lyrics too.

"Jesse" is a ballad from their first album "people tree".
I know the quality is bad and it wouldn´t reflect the great song but have a listen at Amazon

Cheers
Jens

Thanks, Roddyama!

I feel comfortable about the 2 x 25-0 /350VA thans for a mono Aleph 5 now.


Hello Joesnd,

I'll check the local CD shops see if I can get one.
Thanks!


Greetings,
Jesse
