Whilst off-the-shelf voltage regulators are versatile, easy to implement and cheap to produce/buy, they also leave a lot to be desired in terms of specifications.
The ubiquitous LM317/337 regulator does an admirable job, but it isn't quietest device, and dare I say it? Imparts a kind of sonic signature into the music reproduced by your hifi.
Our low-noise voltage regulators are built from discrete components (with certain exceptions such as the error amp) and employ optimised designs & pcb layouts to ensure low-noise. The Quintessence voltage regulators also employ a lot of filtering in key areas to help remove noise, and ensure stable operation.
