    As all board voltages appear to be regulated there is no need for a step down device.

    It's really only needed when you have ac heaters etc...

    Hi Duncan, for the technically challenged, can you elaborate?

    Are you saying it doesn't matter that the mains transformer is 220v, because the secondaries are regulated? How does that work?

    I think he is, didn't read what he said earlier and deleted a post as a consequence. Let's see...

    Curiously, the only component that has ever gone *BANG* on me of its own accord was a Power Inspired AG1500 regenerator.
    Go figure.

    Obviously can't take the pressure in your gaff of all the chopping and changing ...

    For example a L7806CV Linear Voltage Regulator

    This device will accept a voltage range of 11v to 35v input for a 6v 1.5A output.

    Problem is, as the input voltage rises the device will get warmer and will need a heat sink.
    Also the rectifier diodes require 0.6v.

    So ideally the input needs to be about 3 or 4 volts higher than the required output voltage.

    The secondary windings on the pictured transformer show voltages 2x15v, 8v, 7v and another I can't make out.

    So adding 10% gives 2x16.5v, 8.8v and 7.7v, I'm pretty sure the voltage regs' can handle that.

    Happy Days

    Mine went bats last week. Then I realised I was overloading it. It is now fine.

    I'm tempted to try the DAC-05 BTW at £200 odd. If that is better by 10% it'd easily be worth it.

    Thanks Duncan that's helpful.

    And no issues with the mains transformer itself running potentially 20% above specified voltage?

    Itís closer to 10%

    220 + 22 = 242

    So not really, no
