Parallelling power supply chokes???

Hi,

I was wondering: could you connect two chokes in parallel, to double their max. mA rating, or would this have a negative effect on sound quality? I have some 60mA chokes lying around that I'ld like to use for a small power amp, but 120mA would seem a lot more fit for that job! I've never seen parallelled chokes on a schematic however :rolleyes:

Thanks!
 
Hi,I've paralleled a pair of 10H 120mA chokes in the first CLC stage of my latest power amp which draws 240mA with no probs,This is followed by an LC stage consisting of a 10H 300mA choke and 100uF filter cap.Sounds really nice.The second LC stage made all the difference.:D
