Default Adding second bridge to integrated amp, good idea?


I have a rotel intrgrated amp that I have modified quite a bit.

The pre-amp section of this integrated shares the same bridge and power supply filter caps as the output section.

Would it be a benefit to use a dedicated bridge and filter caps for the pre-amp section?. I would still be using the one transformer.

My thinking is that there would be less of an influence on the pre-amp supply voltage if I did this.

Has anyone tried this or have any input?
