Hey guys,

 

Long time lurker here,

 

I know the Creek OBH-11 isn't a popular one on this site, but I just bought one for a song.  Too cheap to resist.  I had one before and it suited me well for computer casual listening.  I gave it to my best friend for helping me move along with some DT770 and got him hooked on this hobby.  Anyways,  I have been searching high and low for a replacement power supply to no avail.  The one I found always recommended was the Elpac WM080-1950-760.  However it appears to be discontinued and can not find any NOS anywhere or used.  I'm not real knowledgeable about electronic specs.  I just want some more juice without frying it as well as not spending $100 bucks on the Creek upgraded power supply.  I don't want to spend more on the wallwart than I spent on the amp.  In my limited knowledge this I think is the closest to spec linear regulated non switching power supply. Does it look like it would do what I want?  Thanks in advance.

the specs on the wart look good...more than enough to supply the creek with power...the wart specs claim its linear and regulated and puts out 1/2 an amp.

If you need 24VDC at 500ma output, then the Jameco walwart is good quality.  I have had two of them for 6(?) years.  Their spec lists 30mV ripple at full load, but I've found them to be much better than that*, which is quite good performance in any audio application.

 

I use mine regularly for PIMETAs, an old revMH Millett Hybrid, and a Mini3 - no complaints whatsoever.

 

* I have Tangent's LNMP, which is able to measure ripple down that low.

Thank goodness, the MEs are here...the creek specs show that it only wants 24VDC at 150 mA...
