Thanks for adding up the numbers, Andrew.

Yes, I agree the heat must be managed. In all of my previous Tupperware projects, I have housed the transformer in a separate enclosure. Or used an outboard battery supply or off-the-shelf regulated supply. So the heat from the transformer was not an issue inside the plastic box. I expect that I'll try the same with the DCB1 and outboard the tranny.

Of course, I'm pretty much a rank novice at figuring out dissipation. With the tranny outboard, would a generously sized grid of small, closely spaced venting holes drilled into the lid and through the floor of the food container provide enough venting for the 2.6w from the stock DCB1 and regulator?

I must say, I am very excited about this project.

LOL,

Wow, I've been so busy the last few years that I dropped out of DIY. I'm just getting back in. Frankly, for the last several years, I forgot that AudioKarma even existed until you just mentioned it just now.

Is there something there I should see?

A little off topic, but it concerns a question asked.

Guys question.

In a hypothetical bi-amping situation, how would it be optimal to wire the DCB1 to offer two outputs?
