Yep. The first regs of this type I saw were the Jung ones published in and around the POOGE articles in Audio Amateur in 1980. They were noisy then, and they're noisy now.Higo said:I think that a string of zeners can not be all quiet. Zeners are noise sources...
Me too. I got a full set of ST35 trannies yesterday, and I want to do a small EL84 PP class A, for the mid-high horns. I have a board in development to do the shuntreg using Allen's circuit, so I can implement a suprreg per channel on the EL84, and a superreg per driver and output stage on the PP1Cs (4 in total).planet10 said:Two of the previous posts directly or indirectly point to Allen Wright's SuperReg circuit. I plan on using these (1 per channel if i can afford it) to power my PP EL84 amp. Since the EL84 doesn't draw too much current, with enuff heatsink one of these is able to power a PP Stereo amp.
Could you tell me more about your design please Dave? Or post a schem? I'd be interested to see what you're doing with the EL84, which seems to be a tube people either love or hate. I'm quite fond of it, and when triode strapped, has nice curves. It's not a DHT but good.It has been used, abused, tested, and bashed, and has evolved into something quite outstanding.
Agreed.Read the book. It is good -- not only for its technical content, but for insights and humour too.
