I have seen good and bad examples on both types of supply. There is alot of high end gears with smps that sounds better than linear.. Vice versa so it highly depends on how its design around it..

I have tried things like lucent. Vicor. Tyco switching DC to DC bricks... It's very good even if it's switching.. No prob with it even for dac.... Tried capacitance multiplier..also very decent especially if the transformer have hum issues

All have advantages and weakness... Sound wise and how to apply. That's why diy is fun as we can explore

Bob Cordell power supply thread is worth a read. Alot of myth and tips there. Especially on how to make a good crc clc.. It works for me. His baf videos on how to filter lt 317.. All worth the time to look at it..

ripple voltage is a function of load current and C, being directly proportional to load current and inversely proportional to C, the difference is in the factor 6.28F, where is either 60 or 50hz for linear power supplies, and for smps minimum of 20khz, so the ratio is 20000/50 or 400, but 30 to 70 khz for smps is not unheard of...

i have used smps for the last two years and the thing i like with the smps is the ease of use and the very low noise compared to linear, really diyer friendly...

but the very low cost compared to linears is the thing i like most..

As long as we weight the pro and cons... Anything goes. All have different signature... All depends upon individual project target

Some like accurate.. Some like musical bliss... But papa is all about music and being sexy

Was told cresnet diy smps here is pretty solid.
