Default Capacitance Multiplier

Could somebody check this schematic for a Capacitance Multiplier PSU?

I drew it after reading the article on Capacitance Multipliers at ESP:
http://sound.westhost.com/project15.htm

If I got it right, its the single-ended version of Rod Elliott's design in figure 3.

I want to see how it sounds on the amp I built in this thread.

Hi,

Superficially, your result looks to be the same as (the positive half of) that taken from Rod Elliot's site, unless I have missed something here.

However, there is no need to have 2 separate connections between the + terminal of the bridge and the collectors of the 2 transistors, as you have shown. These 2 traces are simply in parallel with each other.

Regards,
