Default 18V phono preamp (super) regulator

Can someone please suggest +/-18V regulator for phono preamp?

I would go with the Jung/Diden super regulator but it seems that opamps can't handle that much voltage.

Use a Salas type Shunt regulator.

There are many threads extolling the sound quality that results from adopting the Salas.

There's no problem at all using a Jung SR at those voltages - you need one for +ve which is supplied from+ve raw supply to 0v, and one for negative, supplied from -0v raw to 0v. With only minor care (such as watching disspation in parts and heatsinking) you can use Jung superregs to supply well over +/-30v.

Take the time to read the documentation on Walt Jung's homepage:

Walt Jung - Regulators

- there is much pertinent information given, whichever route you choose.

Yes, I have read some of the articles, and considered mounting the heatsinks on the opamp, but the 18V output seemed to much of a stretch for the AD817. I thougt that the regulator will loose some of the good characteristics that way.

I will try the Super Regulator then (since I've done them before), but now I'm intrigued with the Salas.
