Power supply for MK-VII

Everyone needs a powersupply for a MK-VII. One can use an old transformer from a commercial radio. Custom made transformers are expensive.

It does not matter if you use a tube or semiconductor for rectification.

Hi all,

Would it be possible for someone to send me some PSU circuit diagrams using more modern components ?.

Kindest regards

Hi Terry
Which PSU schematic are you asking about? 6 V or mains?

Kind regards,

Hi Henk,

I was looking for a cct using a mains transformer rather than 6v.
