Electronic choke
Wikipedia is a good source of rumor and opinions, but a bad source of reliable information. What is called a capacitance multiplier, does not work as a multiplier: it does not have a capacitive output, strictly speaking. And it does not have properties of inductance, so it is not a choke. It is a R-C filter with a source follower. A good way to filter rectified power, even to bring up output voltage slowly, using relatively small capacitance and big resistance in R-C network for a large time constant.

I saw attempts to use gyrators there, to simulate a choke. It is even worse! P-network tuned on fundamental frequency of rectified power has higher dynamic output resistance than this simple source follower with R-C network in it's gate.

Every time I'm more confused, surely will be more easy to use an inductive choke.

Here is a more value for money version
Elektronische Drossel, Mosfet Gyrator SS Choke 200mA - eBay, Röhrenverstärker, High-End Audiogeräte, Audio Hi-Fi. (Eindtijd 24-feb-11 18:01:40 CET)
Although shipping costs are quite high.

A choke is heavier and more expensive. But I'm told has the ability to store energy and release it when needed.
But an electronic choke can simulate a choke of 90H and can then pass more current than almost all 90H chokes.

Or maybe just get the PCB:

Or this one. This one looks real nice.

What kind of voltage drop could you expect across one of these for say, 350V unloaded, 300V loaded and say 60-80mA draw?

Would they be a suitable replacement for the iron in say a preamp?
