    I have run a very quick PSRR simulation and there's actually almost 20dB of gain @ 10Hz from PSU noise. I'm curious about this because of the remark by DIYbras that it sounds bass light. The LF PSRR can be fixed up by feeding R2 (100k) via an RC network. 100R and 470uF gives >20dB improvement @ 40Hz.

    It is odd it does seem bass light.

    I've done a LP frequency response 20Hz to 20 kHz with my turntable and can confirm there is a roll-off.

    Iíve not had a look at the PSRR, Iíll give the RC mod a try later today.

    Perceived bass lightness isn't about frequency response, though it sounds like it is - its generally about added LF noise. Ditto the subjective effect of HF roll-off, that's excess HF noise. I look forward to your result. If it improves the bass but doesn't totally cure it, try raising the 100R to 1k.
