Default Question on Vacuum State SuperReg

I am building a dual mono 6sn7 SS rectified tube preamp. This is my first build on my own going way beyond mods I have done in the past. I am using the SuperReg to regulate the voltage on the B+.

I have both the room and parts to place a nice CLCLC Pi filter before the SuperReg and wonder if this is a better thing? I know I don't need to overdo this filter before the SuperReg, but I have the parts and space and think it can only help. Right? Love to hear your thoughts here....

Thanks all!

Given how well the SuperReg works an LC filter on the PS is likely sufficient.

Late Allen Wright always advised choke filter in front of any regulator , including his own Super Reg

I agree with P10 , it's almost redundant here , but why not

Thanks all. I will move on a do a nice CLC filter before the SuperReg. Being newer to this I have one other question on this filter. What value choke do,I use?

The choke is feeding a 6sn7 plate with 325 volts. I plan for 375 volts into the SugerReg and 325 vac to the 6sn7 plate. There is a 90k resistor on the plate. The cathode is 4k ohms. Input is 147k.

How do I figure the choke value I need?

Thanks all

Forget these values as they are all wrong and I will use the tube lab tool to figure this out! These are not the resistor values I will choose etc.... Still learning.
