Stability of any of them will be impacted more by thermal issues than anything else. The colder you can keep the 12V regulator, the more stable it will be. The +12 is by far the most sensitive supply line on the TBolt.
Switcher to give a fairly stable voltage, filtered for noise and then
linear stepdown for the last step. It's been done in high power audio
amplifiers the last 20 years or so.
