Regal you have to look for in other thread this is for low voltage.

I have a BIB kit from Tea-bag's group buy (PCB + 2 pos & 1 neg kits) and I would like to use it to power my Audio Alchemy DAC. I've measured both rails in operation and get the following:

+12V 230ma
-12V 8ma

After reading the BIB guide rev 2 a couple of times, the positive side seems fairly straightforward but I'm a little confused on the negative side. Is the 8ma current draw a problem? Should I be using a mosfet or BJT for this rail?

Thanks

BJT only for voltages below of 5Vout.

Default Mosfet gate stoppers resistor value

why there are various values of resistors used as a gate stoppers
I see 100 - 470 R Is used
what Is benefit of using lower / higher value

Question: if i use a Salas shunt to power a DAC and between shunt and DAC chip or Receiver chip i have some other regs like lm1117-3.3 or lm1117-5 do i still benefit of advantages of using a Salas shunt ?

The simplistic Salas low voltage shunt regulator
Hello Salas,
i've build some of your regulators and now I'm working on a 3,3V using the old Quanghao PCB board.
I'd like to know if there is a maximum output capacity that I can put on the load.
Also I'd like to use this circuits as AVCC of my ES9018.
Normally many people use preregulation like "Placid" on Buffalo DAC and after an integrated regulator like LT1963 or "trident".
What do you think if I connect directely your simplistic Salas low voltage shunt regulator from the dedicate transformer winding to the ES9018 analog voltage pin?
I don't use Buffalo dac but a diy board.
Ciao
Guglielmo

It would be better that you were removing the other regulators to keep all Salas perfomance.

For negative bias the range is typically 25-50V.

My voltages are both 12V out......

It's the 8ma on the -12V rail that I'm questioning.
