I guess the voltage rail is a lot lower on the 55 which is why it uses the 2 small high rail caps instead of the 2 very large ones in the 45 making it much more dependent on available wall AC.

She said typically the 55 has a lot cleaner output which is probably why I describe it as more detailed.

huh. the 35 and 55 both have a three voltage rail design. the caps are almost identical in both. the biggest caps are the 10000uf 100v . the ones in the 45 are much bigger but today's equivilent is so much smaller than the juice cans it came with. as a matter of fact, they are still available at a high price with tons of lead in time. i find the high majority of the time it is the first two rails that are doing most of the work anyway. 35v 60v, 100v if memory serves me.
