I've got some small 3.3u polypropylene input caps to try and a couple of transistor based current sources to try in place of the E-153's but I want to be sure each is a real improvement so must be very familiar with the sound - so some serious listening is required...
Nice work, there is a lot to be gained with a Cap Mx as a power supply for a SE Class A amp. I made a board that accomplihses this plus has a spot for installing a TO220 voltage reg downstream of the cap Mx. Useful for using the TPS7A4xxx 4uVrms noise LDO. It just needs a walwart or some other source of DC input that is about 5v higher than nominal Vcc needed to account for the dropout fromt he cap Mx and LDO.
I seemed to need this ciucuit all the time and kept making them P2P until one day had a board made:
GB for Simple Cap-Mx Regulated Low-Noise PSU
Here is an example made by Gtose:
Simplifies need for a low noise single rail supply into 1 board.
