Would it be safe to adjust the output voltage without any load?
Or is it better to use a dummy load, say 220V 100W light bulb?
I prefer a dummy. It will be hard on the shunt element without. See to use an Ohmic load that will consume about 45mA (analogous to 2x6V6 pre channels). That is 15W dissipation. Maybe 2x 15k 20W resistors in parallel. What kind of Ohmic value that bulb gives when hot?

P.S. Having 175k, set the trimmer around 200R before installation, should get you to your target when going lower. Don't start high trimmer, so the Vdif will not tax the components until you fix it.

No, just learned from Goshu_G's circuit above about it. Busy with another project at the moment but i can see more of your regs in my system soon

If under 300V read some pages before, its with MJE350 and tested. Joshua is going to use a 400V smaller dissipation driver transistor and simulated with some differences in values, so its to be seen if it will work OK or it will need mods.

100W light bulb is way too much, 15W is closer to 45mA current draw. I'd rather use resistors. Anyhow 340V supply may well burn 220V light bulbs.

Indeed, there is nothing to learn from my suggested version of the circuit, since I didn't build it yet.

It will probably do well. But we wait for your feedback.

Feedback will be posted once the regulator and the amp will work. Right now I'm ordering parts.

Salas and all,
Which 1u 400V capacitors do you use, or recommend?
I believe that the selection of this capacitor should make a difference, not less than the capacitors used in the rectifier's filter.
