Default Help with rectifier circuit

Hi, I am building a power supply for a microphone preamp, +24V, with phantom power, +48V. The +48V is going to use less then 10 mA and the +24V will use around 105mA. I've attached a picture of two rectifier circuits I am thinking about.

Are there any problems with either circuit and which one, if any, has advantages over the other?

Thanks
Scott

At a quick glance.

The first one wont work as you need a common ground.
Connecting zero volts on one to zero volts on the other will blow up the bridge.
Or, I could be wrong.

Thanks for the reply. As you can see I am still new to this. I have two more circuits.

The first is with a voltage doubler. I'm not sure if the grounds can be tied together like this. Also does the unloaded output voltage of a voltage doubler = Vin*1.41 the same as a bridge rectifier.

The second one is suppose to work but I just need conformation of this.

Thanks
Scott

You cant tie the grounds together on the first one it would blow the rectifier.

Is there any problem that anyone can see with the second circuit in the second picture?

The second one will work an give you +24 and +48V.
