safe bet is to parallel them with series shottky on output

you can use one of those in dual package , with common cathode

put some capacitance after

When I asked about the laptop power supply here I was told it wouldn't work as it would be too noisy. I did it anyway, and tried it out on the Babo zen v5. There were no reservoir caps after the supplies. It sounded very good, and have yet to have someone say otherwise.

As far as going whole hog on an F5, I just didn't have all the remaining parts to build one, so it's an F5 lite.

whenever you're in doubt , try and trust to your ears only

don't trust too much in what we , armchair racers , are speaking
