Default Aleph 2 power supply

I am working on the power supply for an aleph 2 monoblock and I am trying to learn electronics as I build the amp. The toroid purchase has me a little confused. I want a 1000va toroid, thats my preference per Nelson Pass response to a post prior "You can, of course, always get away with less, and it
also depends on the conservativeness of the manufacturer's
ratings" , but what do I use for the output voltage, 30+30, 33+33 or 35+35 etc. What dictates the value of the output voltage.

that brings me to my next question, when I call a toroid manufacturer what do I tell him I want for example "a shielded 1000va 33+33 toroid."

And finally I read in the post about noise in the amplifier due to the power supply and using inductors to recuce this. As I am learning electronics, does a circuit diagram exist which shows the power supply circuit with said inductors.

Kristijan, So if I understand your schematic, It calls for a 1000va, 37+37 toroid? Thanks Mike

I have two 1000VA toroids from Victoria Magnetics which were custom made specifically for Aleph 2. I plan on Aleph X now, so I want to get rid of those trafos. If you are interested contact me. I'm asking $100 USD ea. plus shipping.

Hello MikeZ,

For the one channel-monoblock of the Aleph 2
power supply, you can use transformers from
at least 600 VA and up.

The 1000 VA transformer is very good choice
for the Aleph 2 amplifier and I would use it
without a seccond tought.

Best regards,
Kristijan Kljucaric

Mike,
Best of luck building yours....don't hesitate to post here with questions. I've built alot of different amps over the years but the Alsph 2 is something VERY special as you will eventually find out. I used a 769 VA toroid that I was able to buy locally and it works just fine. The Victoria Magnetics toroids are very good, so go for it......I know some of the people down there at the factory and I will be using their toroids on my future projects.

Mike,
Krystian PS is excellent, be sure to understand how it works, what type of coil you need, the wire gauge for this coil, how to arrange everything in the enclosure so that the coils don't disturb the low level input signals etc. It's going to be VERY BULKY, heavy, and expensive. Do you have the heatsinks?
