 19th September 2008, 12:09 AM #1 gionag   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Jun 2007 Calculations for an AIKIDO Hi guys, i'm intended to build an aikido pre-amp with 2 of ECC88 (6922). the voltage i'm intended to use for B+ is 200V and then here the calculations for the PSU: Toroidal transofmer with a primary of 225Volt / 142Volt Sec. 70 VA. (my calculations : 200V + 1.3V(drop of rect-diodes) = 201.3 / 1.414 = 142.3V and i estimate that 50mA is enough for both channel of Aikido). Then... for what concern the rectifing i intend to use a "silly" Gretz-Bridge with 0.01uf bypass cap on each section (of the bridge) then a 100uf ELECT cap. I'm right ? And ... the last thing... i based the project about the schematic on the tubecad PCB pdf : http://www.tubecad.com/Aikido_9-pin_Mono_Rev-A_PCB.pdf) Do you think it's ok ? thanks for support Michele

BTW with 200V B+ be careful not to exceed dissipation limit of the Ecc88, especially on the output tubes (been there, done that ) Aikido has a very good PSRR figure but feeding it from a clean supply doesn't hurt.
