Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

I don't have to have a full, wide and deep understanding of how or why something works to exploit the fact that it does. Of course, that's fine, I am not saying they shouldn't. What we started this about was your statement: As you know the capacitors also smooth the output waveform and a larger cap...

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

more than a fact
Actually you don't, you have an observation not a fact.

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

Doesn't actually matter who said it Then why did you credit it to him? what matters is what it says Yep, but in reality it doesn't say anything. Its well known one horse can run faster, but which one, that's the important bit. So, some things can't be counted, but some can, it matters which camp th...

Not a Albert quote.

If you are following that subjective approach why not start just connecting one wire. Or put a pot of yoghurt on the top. Or any other entirely random thing.

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

So then, if having a bigger PSU for the input stage improves the sound, and there is no commercial reason not to, why not? Because without knowing why it improves the sound we are just guessing. Now some may not worry or care, but some others do. Lets imaging a situation, we start with a 75va trans...

Lurch, you know its making amps not political economy don't you 😏
Honestly, no, I think everything that is not art should be evidence based, and I think we can apply the same perspective to both the small and the large.

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

As you know the capacitors also smooth the output waveform and a larger capacity PSU may well just use larger capacitors Yes, but the phrase "smooth the output" hides a lot of detail from a process that is far from simple involving the dynamic interaction of the transformer, rectifiers, caps an the...

Re: Dual mono or separate transformers for input- and outputstage?

Thus, although the current may not be large a high capacity PSU is required to prevent throttling (basically what is going on in the Phono 3) Just think about that for a moment. The current is not being supplied from the transformers, but from the caps, the transformer then tops the caps up 100 tim...

fingers crossed
I am reasonably confidant that that will not affect the outcome.

If catching it, and recovering from it, does not give immunity, then we are in for a pretty rough year or two until a vaccine can be implemented.
