I have a long (2m) but thick wire between transformer-based power supply and low frequency power amplifier. Know your best advice ahead, but no, I cant get rid of it.
I can put it in two configurations:
What should I choose and why?
Looking at some transformer-based PSU's like for mixer equipement I can see a long wire with AC, plus a bridge right in a mixer, but not in the PSU. But looking at SMPS especially for notebooks - they are mostly shielded cables, but runs DC - shottky bridges are close to transformer.
