Allo volt+d custom powersupply, and am questions
I've just bought the Volt+d, and will be using it with my B&O RL60.2(so far so good).

I'm not the biggest fan of the translucent case it comes in, and would rather make a nice wooden/brass box to fit it inside. I'm also considering making an on/off switch, and put in a nice toroidal ring transformer I have salvaged from some quality gear, which both have a 12v and 24v output.

My question is, could I connect the transformer right to the amp, or should I put anything in between ?

Would a toroidal transformer be better or worse than a laptop power supply?

Should I shield the amp from the transformer ?

And finally, how would I know which settings I should use for the AM bandwidth avoidance circuit..

A transformer provides AC voltage, your amp requires DC voltage; do not connect them directly.

Thank you, could probably have found out looking at the transformer first.. Anything important to look for in a conversion module ?

You need a full wave rectifier, but need to watch out for ripple and rectified peak voltage (The Volt +D has an absolute max of 30v)

Someone far more knowledgeable than me will come along shortly, but in the meantime:

Thank you Yatsushiro, that was some of the most educational I have read on a Sunday!

The no load peak voltage after rectify must not exceed 30V. You need a scope to check it.

Otherwise just get a 24V 3A SMPS.
