In other words.
Difference between Vin and Vout must be under 5Vdc in order for regulator to deliver 1A.

Think my transformer is too powerful. Its a Hammond 183J10 10v secondary is rated 3A. I now reviewed the docs to find max is really up to 2A, closer to 1A preferable. Heat sink on regulator chip does get hot-ish. I have Zeno with Saligny. I will go back to using single winding on original transformer as per instructions.

If I add another Zeno powered from same winding (to power V1 for example) will that soak up more of the current?

Ok did a rewind and thought I'd nailed it but..

CD reads TOC and will play a chosen track BUT for only a couple of seconds before track stops and returns to TOC?

I've checked all my voltages and everything looks right to me. Have tried a couple of different mechanisms with the same result. Have swapped ribbon cables.

It's gotta be around that V1 where I have the LF50 (I have 100u on output as per instructions). Will try with different LF50.

Only have a DMM for testing. Tried to see if there was a V change anywhere at moment of stop

Pulling my hair out (what little of it I have)

I need some detailed pictures, to see what you have down and how you have implemented.

Hi Tubo

Try to use the neutrino clock, or neutron star.

You can find it here: NewClassD 16.9344 MHz Neutrino 2 Compact Audio Reference Clock

I remember one user commenting that once they had all high grade mods in place especially with Duelund at C11 and tentlabs xo further adding NewClassD clock didnít achieve further audible gain for them. So really upnto individual budget and preference

Myself I have Neutron Star and it is a nice piece of kit. NewClassD give excellent after sales service very friendly and helpful. If you keep an eye on PartsConnexion they often have NewClassD products at sale prices.
