I need to build a power supply for a 15W Hiraga Le Monstre clone (Jims Audio), I have 4 x 52000uf capacitors and a transformer, what else do I need or are there any suitable boards I can buy?
@eduard can you please suggest approximate value of choke to be used in CLC for 30W Hiraga?
i'm planning to use 1/2 Farad of caps after rectifier. power transformer value would be 400VA for a mono channel.
Power transformers can be good value for choke input but for a second stage, or for CLC you may sometimes want more of an air gap, you might get away with a smaller value air core or just a very large core (not necessarily toroidal though).It is possible to use any transformer as choke.
