But there is a resistor 12ohm across the LM334 in the pcb what is that used for?

To program that chip's current sourcing for the LEDs. It's a fixed value in the design.

Is the L-Adapter good to provide 24v to a Naim discrete MM phono stage?

A little late to the party here. But I do have a quick question that I didn't find the answer to in this thread...

I have some 1000uF and 2200uF caps already laying around.
All else being equal, would there be a penalty for using these at C1 and C2?

Thanks!

Hi

Better not. A big C1 will increase the ramp-up time to nominal output voltage. A big C2 will create confusing time lag when adjusting it.

Good to know.
Thanks, Salas!

I haven't put mine in a fancy box yet. But I did hook it up to my NUC media source and was taken by how much more music was available. I've never experienced such a holographic presentation before. It clearly beats my RPi/DigioneSig/Shanti setup.
Gearing up to replace the already decent linear supply on my DAC next. The cost/performance demonstrated on my NUC made trying it in other places a no-brainer.

Hi Salas,

I wanted to use a couple of the L-Adapters but have a couple of questions first. I have a transformer with 2 x 12Vac 1.25A secondaries. If joined the secondaries would this give me a 12VAC 2.5A output into the L-Adapter and would it then be suitable for powering a Pi without needing a larger than say 38mm heatsinks?

The other L-Adapter I wanted to feed in to a Sjostrom SSR01 12vdc super regulator. I would need approx 18vdc out from the L-Adapter to feed the SSR01, would this be reasonable to get from a 16VAC secondary in to the L-Adapter?

Thanks

Hi,

First case should work. The 38mm sink should find time to cool down since computers usually draw high current only in bursts.

Second case is borderline. Dependent on the transformer's regulation percentage and load current asked. You should check if at least 2.5V DC remains across the D11 diode when on the actual application.
