Parts express doesn't sell the required transformer. Honestly I don't think many people have actually built a power supply for the AMP1. I think a lot of people purchase the kits and then they sit in a box.


I did find the required 2x22V AC 300VA rectifier at a place called Plitron.
 
Just buy two of these 24v 6.5 amp power supplies.

Then connect them in series to make a 24-0-24 supply. Don't connect the AC ground to the supplies or they will short when you series them.

And don't worry about the "OMG a switching supply on a switching amplifier" naysayers. I have yet to have any problems with it.
