You should double check the LM3x7 pinouts. LM317 pinout is different from LM337 pinout.

I made a quick draft of how I'd trace it. You can still keep the clean in/out/gnd trances by putting the input trace on the top side of the pcb.
I also used both protection diodes. (out-in and adj-out).
edit: actually your LM317 pinout is ok, you just have it rotated. Check the LM337 as well, you can simply use the input trace on the top side of the pcb to keep it tidy.

I actually like this kind of arrangement. Can be pretty thin this way. I cleaned the area around the protection diodes, moved the coupling cap a bit more inside etc. You get the idea. You'd still need a top wire but seems like a small price to pay.

sorry, not sure if it has been answered, i want to make a positive supply with output 7.5V-9V for my USB coax digital interface. it seems the denoise ( single transistor )version dose not work well below 11V. Will the two transistors one work well with or without mods? I simulated the single transistor version, and with the output at 7.5v or 12V, there is huge difference in performance.
 
Thanks Trileru , Elvee

My DC input is 13V and the load current is 0.5A
Looks to me that the big difference is when I run noise analysis , I got 14 nV total RMS at 10.8V output, but 164nV at 7.5V out. (1hz-100Khz)
The 620R, 62K resistor change makes some improvement but not big.

I use LT317A model from LTspice .

IIRC correctly, the LT317 model doesn't include noise which is why I modelled the improvement brought by the denoiser using an explicit voltage source

Hi Trileru,

I have what I hope is the final version of the layout, based on the advice that you and the other here have so kindly given.

I've really enjoyed this as an intellectual exercise and have learned a lot about laying out a PCB from a schematic.

Having a power supply, the next step is to learn to lay out an op amp line level analogue circuit, probably a preamp or a active crossover.

I would be grateful if you wouldn't mind casting your eye over the PCB below as a sanity check to make sure I haven't connected something up incorrectly. I've tried to keep the loop areas small and take feedback from the right place as per your advice.
