Default Placid HD + COD

I`m planning a setup with dual mono COD`s. To start off I will use two Placid HD`s (not BP) to power the cod`s. I want to run the analog and digital parts completely seporate all the way to the wall socket. My question is: how much current does the COD draw (VD and VA)?

Not much. I don't have the exact number handy but it is below 100ma each. I would setup for 100ma and adjust up or down until you are shunting around 50ma.

Here is what I am thinking:

2x Cod
1x SP-dif reciever/mux
1x IvyIII
2x Placid HD set to 7,5V 200mA, 100mA shunt (VD x 2 and VA x2)
1x LCBPS for the SP-dif reciever/mux
1x Placid HD BP set to 14,5V (when cold)
2x 9V transformer
1x15V transformer
One 9V will be connected to seporate IEC inlet and power the digital section. The other 9V will be connected to the same IEC inlet as the 15V (analog).

I have a R-core transformer with one set of dual 9V and one set of dual 15V (9V 2x0,8A, 15V 2x0,5A) will that work? Otherwise I`ll just order toroids.

I may insert Joshua Tree between first and second stage of the Ivy and try to connect it directly into power amp. If it works I may try to use an input selector and an analoge input for a RIAA stage.

The Buffalo II I`m currently using is great but lets try something else
