My simplistic RIAA beats the Audio Alchemy DDE 3.0 DAC now by worlds, analog compared to digital reproduction.

Better bass, analog mids, absolutely no listening fatigue.

Thanks Salas!

Hi Franz

You will be amazed if you increase current to 300mA. (You need heatsinks)

One question regarding your shunt regulator, I need a bipolar supply (+/- 3.6), can I just use two positive regulators using a virtual ground in the middle ?
does this solution regulate well for both polarities? any issue?

Of course, each regulator is feed with a dedicated trafo and bridge..

Thanks !

Use a dual secondary transformer. Build two completely separate rectifier/smoothing caps/+ve regulators.
You end up with two isolated supplies.
Just connect these independent supplies in series.

You can also use two -ve regulators, if you wish.

Happy New Year to everyone. I hope this will be the year your audio dreams come true; on the other hand what's the point of that if there is nothing left to build!

I would like some feedback on the possibility of putting some large caps between the SSLV regs and the front ends of the BA-2 and BA-3. Is this possible with the shunt design and if so what value caps would I need? The idea is to 'hide' the shunt regs from the front ends.

Happy new year Chris.

It will slow down the regs a lot by decreasing the open loop gain bandwidth. A bad thing.

Hi Chris

Why do you want to "hide" the shunts ?

Hi,
My friend told me to remove any electrolytic capacitor from the the power supply line if it was supply by a shunt regulator. He said shunt don't like large capacitance at the supply end. Is it true?
Thanks.

Yes, that's true. the whole advantage of using a shunt goes out the window.
