Depends on your application. If its a line stage down to 4u7 PP can sound cleaner than electrolytics, but if it is an MC phono or a sensitive digital clock with no good PSRR you would need to filter the Vref hard to minimize noise with a 220uF for instance. Its discussed in the manual.

thank you Salas

I have In my Vref filter based on Leds 220 nF only and hear low level buzz but I doubt It Is from low value cap

Buzz is usually some gnd loop nested somewhere in the full system. Takes tedious debugging. Also check with scope that the rail isn't acting up on something. Low Vref filtering for a purpose would demonstrate as higher white noise effect.

BIB Is high quality universal regulator
I see that some users hype 1.2R regulator - can It be set for 5 to 24 Vdc
which sounds better

Not necessarily, I know people who prefer 1.1 and others the Reflektor. They all got their best synergy applications area, and subjective preference is a non quantifiable term.

Hi Salas,
I have built several positive and negative regulators using the recommended boards. I have noticed that the negative regulators do not have stable output voltage with respect to varying loads at high shunt currents (4-500mA through the shunt). Do I need to adjust some components or should I lower the current source to allow 100mA or so through the shunt? My load is 100mA and I currently am running 600mA from the current source.
Please advise.
Thank You,
Bill

Much spare current slips the phase margin more with the semis used in the negative polarity. Solder another 1 Ohm across the R7 to see if something changes. But first check the rail with the scope to see there is no oscillation issue giving the instability. If its a DC line without waveforms riding and lessening R7 does not help, stick a 100 uF across the sense terminals on output connector. Last resort is you try use significantly less spare current.

Default best film type cap that BIB can handle

I am looking to buy some films for Vref and Vout
I am struggling between Auricap and Sonicap
would you recommend which can be better to power line aplication - UGS V3
of course you can recommend some other brand
I would like to use Obbligato Gold but It Is so long

Thank you for the recommendations Salas.
Lowering the resistor at R7 to 1/2 Ohm and then shorting it out both improved the change in voltage. Shorting out R7 was better. My current output cap is a 10uf film (C104). 100uf across the output causes the voltage change with varying loads to be insignificant. I will experiment with different output capacitors in place of my current 1 Ohm/ 10uF film Zobel.
Another possibility is to add some electrolytics to the circuit that I will be powering and leave the Zobel in place on the regulator circuit board.
My final choice is to lower the current sours down to 200 mA but I like to run it hot.
Am I on the right track??
Bill

You are on the right track. Do you have an oscilloscope?
