oldearsOften wondered about this. People claim it improves performance of a Rega 24 vAC motor. Mine causes hum if it gets too near the Rega power supply.
I'm sorry to bring this up again, but if the spec of your power supply is an AC output, it is NOT a linear power supply, even it the (Swagman) box it is in is labeled as such.Why do you say this isn't a linear power supply? It looks like it has a standard toroidal transformer and LC RFI filtering. While it doesn't convert to DC, I think this would still be considered a linear power supply.
What is a Linear Power Supply? ...The Rega TT is powered by AC, so this Swagman unit is simply an external power supply. It would be superior to an onboard PS due to the toroidal transformer, better caps, plus isolation.
Do you concur?
Not exactly. The definition of an LPS is correct. A higher current capacity transformer has a chance to provide better speed stability to a TT. I'm not sure why you think it has any caps at all, or what purpose they would have in an AC supply, and I personally think it a bit of a stretch to call a transformer in a box a power supply.For some enlightenment on transformers you might want to watch "pints with Ayre" on utube.
