A nice suggestion would be:

peh200ko6100mu2

100000uF 40V.

http://sitosite.dk/amps/rifa-capbank.pdf

It uses blade terminals so we can fit AWG12 cables on it.

It uses an external bridge rectifier like GBPC3502 (Place an RC filter across the output of it).
I see very serious approach here 2 x 0,1 F/40 V is expected overkill from you Sonnya.

What i like about them is the low ESR at 10khz of < 15mOhm....

Hi all,

I finally find the time this afternoon to etch TSSA BIGBT HP, need yet to drill

Hi Marc

PCB-s are looking great, we're just about to start soldering separate stages and simultaneously testing their functionality. It will be systematic construction process, also very educational one and above all a lot of fun.

Yes but first have to drill, to mesure BC550/560 and 2SA/2SA (no idee for conditions to achiev mesure for these)....

Regular hFE measurement by multimeter with this function is completely sufficient. Multimeters measure hFE at Ic=1 mA and that is OK for relative matching. Several times I rechecked hFE matching by Ic=100-500 mA by other methods and matched transistors always stayed in the same pairs as defined by multimeter. You are not seeking absolute hFE value of each BJT but using only relative comparison to find best matches.

So i must be able to use the schematic below for this use. 0R22 are arrived to...

What's the purpose of this sch? BJT matching I suppose, but why not using hFE function of multimeter? You don't have multimeter with hFE function?

Yes BJT matching. My Fluke don't have Hfe fonction. I have another with Hfe function but the DMM is really cheap and basic one. Don't know if i can trust in it. Must check if the Hfe socket is useble for To126 package.

The hFE function on most cheap and cheaper DMM is based on a constant Ib. This gives misleading results.
But worse, the Ib is set so low that, the hFE results are for an Ic that is off the left side of most manufacturers' plots of hFE vs Ie.

This combination of design faults makes the added on hFE function a virtual waste of effort and waste of resources.
