I think what you need to know is mentioned here: http://www.twistedpearaudio.com/docs...ide_V1.0.5.pdf

Pages 9-10. Otherwise, you may need to explain what you realy mean.

it says that buf without tridents requests 290ma and with tridents 450ma so 450ma-

290=160ma/3=53ma

then each 3.3volt input requires 53ma?

i just am not sure if current is equally shared at the 3 aux inputs for tridents.

what i want to do is replace the two tridents with salas but i don`t know

how high i need to adjust the current.

The Tridents replace the on-board regulators. So your number is way too low. Just measure the current on the Tridents. I recall Russ mentioning how to do this on the support forum.

You could just measure the current draw of each section.

The 1.2V section draws a lot more current than the 3.3V sections, which are also not the same current draw, but similar.

Back, you are using Salas BiB? Than set 100mA would be just nice.
