I thought about going that way when I get the components to build a TC... I figured out that it
should be more efficient - just like you and a few others here.

Here goes...

	|            |
	|     +--|>--+--|choke|--+-- +??kV
	|     |                  |
	o-NST-o                |cap|
	|     |                  |
	|     +--<|--+--|choke|--+-- 0V
	|            |

(I hope it comes out okay on your side...)

Now that I re-think about it, another small cap before the chokes would sound like a fairly good

Have fun and after you tried it, tell me how well it worked compared to AC.
