    Tubes4HiFi 587uF Power Supply Board for PAS

    Post by PeterCapo on Wed Oct 21, 2009 5:18 pm

    Hi folks. Just a few questions:

    Can anyone qualify/quantify the improvement that you might be able to expect from this module?

    Any reason why it cannot/should not be paralleled-in with a quad cap for even more energy storage?

    Thanks.
    Peter

    Hi Peter, this little power supply upgrade can make a huge improvement in the sound of the PAS3, by replacing the old quad cap (not to supplement it) with large capacity high quality caps, also replaces the old filament supply

    Thanks for your response, Roy. Just a couple more questions if I may.

    I understand that the new module can stand on its own in place of the quad cap. But, is there any reason why it would be a bad idea to supplement the new module with a quad cap just to increase the overall energy storage?

    Also, I presume you can retain the 12X4 rectifier with the new module, correct?

    Thank you.
    Peter
