Thanks Salas.


lessons learned:

Next time, I'll build, measure, then order the correct R's. Can't rely on theoretical specs for this. For some reason, I had spec'd the V at 2.3 from spreadsheet so I had those 3.9r for about ccs 600ma

In essence, I need to order 1.2 and 1.55 r to get .600 from both bibs.

so 2x2.4r and 2x3.1r in 5W

.72/600 = 1.2
.93/600=1.55


thanks all for support

...Or simply sub a stronger LED that will make up for the difference, or, or...
The calc makes some assumptions, but if you will feed it your measured LEDs total Vf and specific Mosfet's VGS it will guess better. This is not a very easy to grasp initially reg for its inner works and fine points, its very individual. Using passive voltage reference with no local feedback loop holding its value even...But it pays in tone I hope. That part was the focus of the design.
Some pictures after you are finished are always welcome to the shunt family album.

Yup, these are MKT made by Taiwanese manufacturer Carli and are commonly used in XO projects. $1.80ea at Madisound

tx220S (S-Foil power resistors) arent bad either =) gotta love surplus cleanups around here. bagged a bunch of these including some 4.7R and 10R, perfect for salas regs with a little heatsink. with teflon cap, makes for a stupidly OTT shunt reg

Default SSLV1.1 powering TDA1541A

Improvement in sound with these regs is quite a step up. Happy with the stability so far; DC coupling to my power amp has been quite a juggling act but ive enjoyed the challenge. Hi-res picture attached.

Thanks.

The 3 regs are supplying -15V, -5V, and +5V to a TDA1541A running at 44.1/16. The +5V reg is also supplying 2mA of current to bring the voltage on the analog output of the DAC to 0V (so far stable to about +-2mV).

The output stage is the CEN current conveyer circuit published by EUVL. The DAC sees about 6-7 ohm impedance keeping it roughly under the Philips' spec of +-25mV.
