Default Choke Input Filter on Class A PS

Hello all,

I have a PS question - I have used a Choke input design to better reduce ripple and reduce the B+ of a tube amp before and it worked perfectly.

I am looking at another Choke input application where I can use a Dual secondary tranny (40 - 0 40 - 0) with a choke input to get around +/-35 VDC rails (VDC =.9 x VAC) for a class A Zen amp.

I found an SAE EMI filter that measures 12mh (with my LC meter), .1 ohm series resistance input to output. Also rated for 6A each side. Looks to be a perfect drop in solution to put after the FWB rectifier and a Cap multiplier. The diagram is shown below. The diagram shows the small caps across the rails, and two 7 mh coils on both sides with a 270k ohm resistor in center.

Anyway, any reason to think this wont work as a choke input filter?? I see these al l the time on flea bay and wonder if instead of finding a 2.5mh inductor, just use one of these jobbies...

calculate the maximum and minimum currents that the 7mH can supply.

Yes, this piece has common mode chokes and won't work, except as a noise filter as designed. Unless off course you have only a few mA to run through it and wire as differential mode.
