Take a look on the low noise 1.5A LDO regulator LT1963 and 500 mA LT1763.
Voltage regulation depend on how good is the circuit behaviour with respect
to Noise, PSRR, Line regulation and Load regulation. For instance some LT
regulators like LT1117, 1085 and 1086 have < 1% of Line and Load regulation
but have worst noise specs than LT1963, LT1763, MCP1825, MCP1826.
