Power transformer maybe? From what I've been reading, it's common.

Nop, what puzzle me that it looks like is coming from the board.

I've also noticed that something on the board buzzes, but I only hear it when I'm troubleshooting and have not taken the time to figure out what component.

It might just be the rectifier.

I have heard filter caps buzz. Can electrolytics, motor runs, and even PC mount snap ins. All can buzz and the only cure is replacement.

Probably, I can happily live with it. I am just try to understand if it's a signal that something is going to explode :-)

I will try without the rectifier, this will exclude or point me to the positive supply.

Thanks,

Davide

Here are some more pictures of the inside and outside.

I am particularly happy of the general layout, as I think is one of the main factor that makes the amp so quite. The two polypropylene capacitors are few centimeters away from the OPT, I could easily attach some smaller cap, directly on the additional contacts of the caps, but I am not sure it will bring any benefit, as these caps have already very law ESR.

The cap next to the choke is an high quality electrolytic. The reservoir cap is on board. I used a star topology for the ground, and the center is at the reservoir cap. There is a thermistor between the ground and the safety earth.

Happy new Year to everybody,

Davide

Default Universal TSE with 45ís

Hereís my universal TSE with 45ís. Iím very happy with the results.
OPTís are from Electra-Print. Chassis and (build-in) PT are from AE-Europe (ae-europe.nl).
I added a pre-out for my subwoofer, a 70hz highpass switch and adjustable 6db BSC. (credits to Matthijs of triplemaudioshop.nl)
Itís hum free after doubling C1.
Power is absolutely enough for a great sound on my Fostex FE126eN sphere speakers.

In red you can see the additions to the original schematic.
