Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

Regulation

Choke input provides better average regulation. Peak regulation - which likely has just as much impact on the music - is much worse. For this reason, choke input supplies require more storage capacitance than would otherwise be required to merely eliminate ripple. The combination of L and C can also create resonances and other undesired behavior. It's a good idea to always use SPICE to simulate the output impedance of any supply powering an audio amplifier, particularly when it uses both chokes and filter capacitors.
